If someone only wants ESPN to report on game-related news (scores, stats, standings, injuries, etc), then all coverage of this incident (and others like it) would be viewed as bad. If someone wants ESPN to report on athletes outside of the game as well, then this seems like fair game. It's not even as if this is from some confidential source--not that that would matter--these were released by the DA's office.
I understand, it just seems so unnecessary. It's one thing to cover the actions that led to his suspension and what not, but to plaster the exact texts on the front page of the site seems like overkill in this instance and really plays into the idea that ESPN is slowly becoming more concerned about what happens off the field than on it.
