The treatment of LSU Coach Les Miles by The Advocate and other news media has been inexcusable. Absent statements by LSU officials, you have reported nothing but rumors and gossip.

Reporters at his news conference asked rude and disrespectful questions, apparently trying to draw an angry response.

Since when are rumors and gossip considered news? Is that something you learned in journalism school?

If so, then the course on journalism ethics was covering an oxymoron.
