Do You Believe The Journalist or the Athlete?

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS' WIDE receiver Dwayne Bowe is quoted in ESPN the magazine as saying:

"You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room. The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing."

The quote caused a stir - so much that Bowe apologized publicly. But he denied making the statement. He says he was misquoted.

ESPN says they have Bowe on tape but they won't make the tape public.

Should they? Or should the public just trust that the journalists are responsible?
