    I’m surprised this type of thing doesn’t happen more often, TBH.

    He had to pretty brazen, or pretty dumb, to get caught. Probably both.

    I’m really curious what he leaked. Assuming it had to do with the layoffs?

    Nice timing on this one. Released 45 minutes prior to Super Bowl kickoff.

    What does this even mean? Leaking confidential, proprietary information would be grounds for termination at any company.

    “Virk is accused of leaking confidential company information to the media on multiple occasions, according to sources.

    When ESPN investigated the allegations, it felt that Virk failed to fully cooperate.”

    It sounds like he didn’t do himself any favors. :idk:

    Calling a Pakistani an Afghan is about as lazy, ignorant, and culturally insensitive as calling an American a Russian. Then showing an “oh well” attitude just makes you look like a piece of shit. It’s 2019, find some empathy.

  41. You’re talking about modern sports journalism, right? Maybe old school journalism. Or investigative journalism. But the lifeblood of modern sports journalism is hot takes and clickbait. So not even close. You’re talking about ESPN not Reuters.
