I Love Honest Reporting, posted by Michael Trice

I hate when national reporters smooth a quote for print. and both used the sanitized AP version of San Antonio Spur’s coach Gregg Popovich’s quote about the beatdown they received from the Mavs last night. Not the Statesman, however. The Statesman went with full verbal honestyin printing this from Popovich:

“They kicked our ass every which way but loose,” Popovich said. “Their energy and aggressiveness was great.”

Not bum, rear, butts–or whatever other safety word would pop to mind. And frankly, asses is what Popovich meant, and it’s the word that most exactly fits the Spurs miserable showing. Kudos to the Statesman for sticking to the truth of the matter. That’s some honest reporting.
