Selling Souls for the Price of a Paper

Stephanie Mott

The print media's comfort with perpetuating the false, mutually exclusive dichotomy of LGBT and Christian is distinctly not journalism. Making choices that sell newspapers, but at the cost of human dignity, are not journalistic choices. It is the disgusting devaluation of human beings for the price of a paper.

As laughable as these sanctions are -- and they are laughable, considering even the NFL admits "DeflateGate" had no impact on the outcome of the AFC Championship game -- what's even more ridiculous is the clueless nature with which the NFL hands down these sanctions.
