So this guy drove all the way back from Williamsburg thinking, wow, had Nixon made that shot it would have gone into overtime?
And he said it twice, once in the start and once at the end.
My guess is that he watched it on TV and was switching games. But the score was 75-74, so how could anyone get the fact that the shot (a three point shot!) was for a tie? Why didn't a good editor catch it? "Hey son, this says the three was for a tie, but it was a one point game. How can that be possible?"
Sorry, if I had not seen the game, read the story, then found out that they made a glaring error, I'd have to wonder if anything else was correct. They get PAID to do this. It is not like one of us who sit here and throw out whatever we want. They get PAID to write stories. Is it so much to ask that they get the facts RIGHT?
This is the second story in a row where they got FACTS wrong. It is so much to ask that they do a little fact checking and get editors who actually look at stories with a critical eye? Again, that is what the editors get paid to do- edit.
