It happened again. A "reporter" with one of the local news outlets took to Twitter this morning to "report" "news" that turned out not to be true.
This time it was Melody Mendez of Fox 31 who reported that a police officer killed in Minnesota was a relative of Broncos WR Eric Decker. Well, his last name was Decker, but he was not a relative of Eric's at all. There was a rumor going around that he had been, though, and Mendez jumped on it.
Rather that seeking confirmation from two or more sources, Mendez took to Twitter and made an ill-advised announcement.
A few weeks ago we had an idea for little Tebows for Nativity scenes. We shared the idea with an artist and today NativiTebows are a reality. Tammy Vigil of Fox 31 caught wind of the little buggers and came out to the artist's house today to film a peice on them. Look for the story on Fox 31 News at 9 PM tonight!
We are huge fans of Josina Anderson here at the 'Stands. That's why we are kind of bummed to learn that she is leaving Denver to pursue opportunities elsewhere in the vast universe of Sports Broadcasting at a little network called ESPN.
As her fans know, Josina has garnered national attention largely for her affinity for breaking stories. Remember 9 babies by nine mommas (Travis Henry)? She has also appeared on Inside the NFL for Showtime.
She'll be missed. Bye Jo Jo. Congratulations.
