As a member of the Chicago media, I am slightly embarrassed today. The reason is because as much as we (the local media) have fun with the collective "east coast bias" of ESPN, as soon as we (the local media) are beat to a story in town....we feel insulted by the individuals participating.
For those that do not know, like any other business most of the members of the local media in town are extremely envious when an athlete in town prefers the national sit down interview rather than being in a gangbang of local scribes.
Personally and professionally I really do not care about what outlet an athlete uses to either break some news or in this case.....apologize.
