Mac Engel: Feel free to hate Briles and Baylor, but make sure to do your homework on the subject.
There are too many sad elements in this tale to count, but the media has failed in the Art Briles/Baylor saga from the start. From our inability to see some of these sexual assault allegations when they were occurring in real time at Baylor, to labeling Briles as a man who endorsed and fostered a culture of rape. Aware of my own failings and hypocrisy on this story, I acknowledge why so many deplore my well-meaning good brothers and sisters in the media. As critical as we are to your community and a democracy, we can be a lazy judgmental pack of self-important blowhards.
