ESPN Apologizes to the Patriots

Steve Levy apologized for reporting false information.

No one likes to admit when they're wrong.


It's rare that a big sports entity like ESPN apologizes for false reporting. They are held to a higher standard than most and everything they report is put under a microscope. NFL reporter Chris Mortensen has taken heat recently for giving out false information. 

This time SportsCenter host Steve Levy took time out of a 12:20 a.m. show to apologize. Not about Deflategate... something we all remember from 2002. ESPN incorrectly cited a report regarding Super Bowl XXXVI. 

The beauty in the apology? It was on a late SportsCenter, when less viewers are likely to watch. Smart. For those who may have missed it, the Patriots tweeted it out for the rest of the world to see.
