Michael Phelps is a 23 Year Old Jock…Hello

Do you care that Michael Phelps smokes pot?
( polls)

Michael Phelps, winner of 14 career gold medals got photographed smoking a bong. Now it’s an entire day of faux non-outrage by the media. Like mentioning it…not condemning it…but mentioning that it’s being mentioned by other outlets…also not condemning it…but generally hinting that it should be condemned – for the children etc.

And then there are all sorts of apologies.

Is this a fall from grace?
