Deadspin Editor-in-Chief A.J. Daulerio: No regrets over ethical handling of Brett Favre story

Mike Wise, A.J. Daulerio | Photo by Brian Hendrickson Deadspin editor-in-chief A.J. Daulerio's handling of Brett Favre's alleged contacts with former New York Jets game day hostess Jenn Sterger has led sports journalists to question the ethical handling of the story and how they would have handled it. Should he have paid a source for voice mails and an indecent photograph allegedly sent by Favre to Sterger? Did he break a verbal anonymity contract by identifying Sterger as a source? Daulerio isn't concerned by those questions. In a 90-minute panel discussion on sports journalism ethics in the digital age titled "Where's the line?" that included ESPN Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of ESPN.com Rob King, Washington Post columnist Mike Wise and WISH-TV reporter Ashley Adamson, Daulerio said he holds no regrets for his handling of the story.
