“In a case like this, it’s important to reach out to all sides for information and comment. When I got the information the other night, I didn’t do that. And I could’ve done a better job of reaching out to the other people, especially on a story as sensitive and significant as this. It’s a reminder to slow down.”

Knowing how ESPN and Disney work, Schefter was probably just doing a little PR work by saying he was sorry.
Schefter wants to be first so badly that he’s willing to do just about anything to get a scoop, even if it means putting out only one side of a story.
A big L for Schefty.
