Since the internet has become a dominant presence in the news world, it seems now, more than ever that unnamed sources dominate the articles on the web.
News trades, private convos about athletes.. all confirmed from "sources" that these journalists, are protected by their companies. These lead many people to ask: where do you get this information for you stories, and is it legal?
This summer, one of the big stories was the JPP hand incident. One of the first to break news on the issue was ESPN. According to Jason Pierre-Paul, his hospital documents were acquired illegally, and he plans to sue.
The lawsuit claims Adam Schefter "improperly obtained Plaintiff's medical records from a hospital" and then tweeted them out, writing that "ESPN obtained medical charts that show that Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul had right index finger amputated today."
Two employees of Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami were fired in early February for inappropriately accessing Pierre-Paul's medical records. They were identified by the Miami Herald as an operating room nurse and secretary. A lawsuit against the hospital has been settled.
So it has been confirmed that his records were accessed inappropriately, but we have no word on if Schefter was apart of this. If so, this could really hurt his credibility in the long run.
