I agree that Block is scum and needs to be drummed from the sport. I agree this is a serious story that needs to be followed up.
But the fact that LetsRun broke this story brings up the lack of credibility it has to many in teh sport. If broken by more credible journalists then it would be taken more seriously by many people.
The reasons why many don't see LetsRun as credible journalists is the obvious biase of many of their articles, their active participation in and promoting of a message board that is offensive to many and slanderous to many in the sport.
So unfortunately, this is a case where the reporter of the story is part of the story.
I think we all agree that Block should not have been in the Nike VIP center at the trials. That is troubling to many of us and we want to see a follow-up by other more seasoned journalists. But Block is not as troubling as 3 major Russian stars being banned for doping earlier today, something that has not been reported on by LetsRun, once again showing us that their is some bias, or agenda, or ineptness associated with LetsRun.
