David Rubin, a professor of media law at SU, disagrees the police investigation is enough to report on and said he thinks ESPN acted unethically in running the story on Thursday. He said nothing in ESPN's reporting so far has indicated enough of a change from what it knew in 2003 to justify running the story now, aside from the recent Penn State scandal. The Penn State scandal is not enough reason for the media to relax its ethical standards, he said. "Just because the Syracuse police have opened an investigation doesn't seem to me to provide nearly enough of news peg to allow ESPN to offer allegations like this that are so damaging to Bernie Fine," Rubin said. But now that the information is out there, he said, it is impossible for other media outlets to ignore."From Kathleen Ronayne's Daily Orange article on media coverage of the Bernie Fine allegations.
