One of the nice things about the CBS Sports player for the Super Bowl? It has an all-22 view, which means you can see what every player is doing all at once. Switching angles on the fly is pretty rad.

CBS Sports fires blogger who flubbed Joe Paterno death report
Bad sourcing plus poor timing: Adam Jacobi took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to reveal that CBS Sports — which ran with a erroneous story that Joe Paterno had died hours before he actually did, based on a single tweet from a student Web site, originally linked to and otherwise unsourced (then retracted it, naming the source and initially refusing to take full credit for the error) — fired him over the incident. “In the end, CBS had to let me go for the Paterno story going out the way it did,” Jacobi wrote. “and I understand completely. Thanks, everyone, for reading.” The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple calls the move classy on Jacobi’s part, and an important line in the sand for CBS: “Not only does CBSSports.com put on notice its employees that multiple sourcing matters,” Wemple writes,”it puts on notice the entire industry.” While we don’t necessarily think Jacobi should’ve been fired, CBS made a good move, as it initially looked like they would let the sword fall onto Onward State. It would’ve been better if they took credit right away. (photo via Flickr user audreyjm529) source

I never, in a million years, would have thought that Onward State would be cited by the national media, and today, I sincerely wish it never had been. To all those who read and passed along our reports, I sincerely apologize for misleading you. To the Penn State community and to the Paterno family most of all, I could not be more sorry for the emotional anguish I am sure we caused. There are no excuses for what we did. We all make mistakes, but it’s impossible to brush off one of this magnitude. Right now, we deserve all of the criticism headed our way.
Onward State managing editor resigns over false Joe Paterno death report. Really appreciate Devon Edwards owning up to this. Props to him. Appreciate his honesty in a tough time.

producermatthew:

CBS Sports’ original report on Joe Paterno’s death failed to source Penn State student-run blog Onward State. This was a screen grab I captured shortly after CBS Sports pushed the story.
CBS Sports is now sourcing the Penn State blog.

Bad form, CBS. EDIT: Did some backtracking, and it appears that they did link the original tweet from Onward State but didn’t explicitly cite them in the text. Is that enough of a citation?
