Re: News Tribunes articles on Ken Griffey Jr. sleeping during a game.
Quoting anonymous sources in a story is something that investigative journalists do to protect the lives of people who come forward with information that is important enough for them to risk everything, not something a sports journalist does to promote a story line.
Griffey is someone who is very important to Northwest sports. His style and spirit for the game inspire baseball fans all over the world, and that’s something that deserves more than a trash story backed up by anonymous sources.
I enjoy reading my hometown rag, but if I were a betting man, and if I had to choose between Griffey playing in the major leagues, hopefully in Seattle in 2012, and The News Tribune being in existence, I would put my money on Griffey.
