Judge: Sports Scores No Longer Have To Be Accurate

Working off today's court finding that the NYCDOE only has to provide Teacher Data Reports to the press, not vouch for the accuracy of the data contained therein, a judge in the New York Appeals Court has found that New York media outlets may now print sports scores that are not accurate.

The judge wrote in his decision that the important thing with sports is the disclosure of the scores from the games, not the accuracy of those scores.

Under that new guideline, the Brooklyn Dodgers beat the New York Giants 3-2 this evening in a sporting event played up at the Polo Grounds.

Don Newcombe won the decision, Carl Furillo knocked in the winning run in the top of the ninth inning.

What you say? The Brooklyn Dodgers play in L.A. and the Giants play in San Francisco and those players are long retired (in Furillo's case, I believe deceased...)?

So what?

We don't have to be accurate with our reporting any more.

All we have to do is make sure we get the "facts" as reported to us out there.

You can believe that sports score I just gave you just like you can believe the Teacher Data Reports the Post will be publishing in a few days...
