Paige apologizes for using SportsBusiness Journal's quotes
Three quotes in Woody Paige's Sunday Denver Post column appeared word for word in a SportsBusiness Journal piece by John Ourand, who called out Paige on Twitter, reports Michael Roberts. He writes:
How is he trying to make amends?
"I talked to John and I apologized to him," Paige allows. "I told him it was a mistake, and he accepted that and said he enjoyed the column."
In addition, Paige shared the situation with the folks at the Post, "and based on my conversations this morning, there will be a correction run" in the print edition; the online version linked above now includes the proper attribution, as well as a note pointing out the change.
That's fine by Paige. "I don't know that I chose to be in this limelight, but I chose to be in this business," he says. As such, scrutiny over his every word "comes with the territory. And I know better."
