Why did I soft-pedal Alvis Solis?

Listened to a podcast recently in which I was accused of covering up "one of the biggest sex scandals in Texas" because of racism.  I'm not gonna link it because it doesn't deserve your time.

I report facts.  I don't expose myself to slander lawsuits. I report facts like
-- Alvis Solis steps down and turns academy over to Roy Davis
-- Washington DC filed charges against Nick Schultz and Matthew Maldonado
-- The medal chasers fled TLI in the middle of the night
-- Police report is filed for assault domestic violence by Nelson Monteiro
-- Eben Kaneshiro is arrested for sodomy and sexual abuse

When I don't have facts, I don't report them.  Not everything immoral is illegal, so, criminal charges won't always be filed. When that is the case, I don't report gossip.  I don't want to subject myself to having to defend myself in court. Even if what I report is true, it's not "truth" until a court says so.

Some blithering idiots don't get it.

You Report GARBAGE. You Report Hearsay! If you did report just detailed facts then maybe we would respect your reporting.
