Adam Schefter Responds To Viral Email to Former Washington Executive Bruce Allen

Adam Schefter is the latest victim in the Washington Football Team investigation by the NFL.

During the NFL’s investigation into the Washington Football Team, nearly 700,000 emails were uncovered, one of which included ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.

The New York Times published a story showing details of an email from Adam Schefter to former Washington executive Bruce Allen. In the email, Schefter asked if any of the included information should be “changed” or “tweaked” for a story.

“Please let me know if you see anything that should be added, changed, tweaked. Thanks, Mr. Editor, for that and the trust. Plan to file this to espn about 6 am,” the email reportedly read.

During his weekly radio hit on 97.5 The Fanatic, Schefter spoke about the email.

“I’ve learned for a long time in this business not to discuss sources, or the process, or how stories are done,” Schefter said. “But I would just say that it’s a common practice to run information past sources. And in this particular case, during a labor intensive lockout that was a complicated subject that was new to understand. I took the extra rare step to run information past one of the people that I was talking to. You know, it was an important story to fans; a host of others, and that’s the situation.”

I’m pretty sure this isn’t the last we’ve heard from Schefter on this subject.

This is one story no one wants to be a part of…
