USA Today's Danny Sheridan Compares Bloggers to Cockroaches

During a highly anticipated radio interview yesterday with Paul Finebaum, Danny Sheridan of USA Today was expected by many to divulge the name of the “bag man” who purportedly delivered the money necessary to bring Cam Newton to Auburn. Sheridan did not name the person, claiming he never promised to do so. When Finebaum said that Sheridan would be raked over the coals by media commentators, Sheridan was unmoved, and went off on a tangent about bloggers who (cliche alert) mostly live in their mother’s basements. He likened them to cockroaches who aren’t man enough to say something and put their name to it.

To recap, people were paying particular attention to what Sheridan had to say yesterday because he claimed to know something, but then refused to divulge the name because he says he didn’t want someone to lose their job. In unrelated news, I know the real identity of D.B. Cooper, but don’t want to reveal his name because someone might lose their job. Come back tomorrow, though, maybe I’ll troll for more attention change my mind.
