Don't blame the reporter

Earlier today news broke that Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood may have broken university code by contacting a professor of a player. Around the Rutgers universe people are taking shots at the reporter who wrote the story, which is not fair. As a reporter, I would have to assume that this story was completely vetted by the editors at the Ledger. You can't just run a story like this, that is not how the system works.

Some Rutgers fans view the Ledger as the enemy,which is not true at all. The Ledger covers the team, is like me covering government. You write the good and your right the bad, that is how this works. People need  to calm down, they need to respect the job that reporters do.
