Deflategate : A Day by Day Recount of Football's Strangest Scandal
At the core of Deflategate is the media and the public reaction to the story. Deflategate has proven to be a lens, putting focus on the 24 hour news cycle, the viral nature of what is no longer journalism, but what is 'infotainment'. Deflategate says more about our culture and the sensationalism, speculation and conjecture that passes for news than it says about football. Deflategate is a prime example of how the media treats any story; speculate, parade 'experts' in front of the camera, report half-truths and do not investigate. It raises far more questions about journalism ethics than it does about sportsmanship ethics. In a landscape of lazy reporting and simply re-broadcasting incomplete works of others, Deflategate has proven to be an incredible study of media and the current state of mass-communications. Deflategate: a day by day recount of football's strangest scandal is the most complete retelling of Deflategate as it happened. With a day by day breakdown of news stories as they unfolded, all of your favorite Deflategate reports are included here, in one place.

Follow along as twists and turns in this true plot lead us down a path of conspiracy, double-dealing, artifice and secrecy.
