This morning, I've already received at least five copies of the exact same letter objecting to details in Jason Whitlock's column.
Yes, I get it. I'm checking into the allegations of an error of fact in the column. But please, quit sending the same e-mail from multiple addresses. These fake grass roots (hence the name "Astroturf") campaigns really don't help at all. Ironically, they make people who solicit feedback from the public question the honesty of every person writing about the issue.
UPDATE: It's now upwards of 20 copies of the same letter now, a few from the same e-mail address, but with a different name attached. Jason and his editor Mike Fannin, managing editor for sports and features, stand by the reporting that Michael Beasley has been seen driving a Hummer. Jason reports he has it from multiple sources.
