Episode 402 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina features an interview with Tim Burke, also known on Twitter as @Bubbaprog, one of the former Deadspin reporters who broke the 2013 Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax story that is the subject of a new Netflix two-part series.
Burke gives details on how Deadspin got the tip about Te'o and how long they worked on the story before publishing it. He also talks about being surprised by the reaction to the story, what he wanted to accomplish with the story and what he'd do differently.
Burke also discusses the recent kerfuffle he found himself in after posting a spliced video of Sean Hannity and Ron DeSantis, how he was the first person to post the uncensored video of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars, how he's able to monitor so many things throughout the day and more.
The podcast closes with the weekly "Traina Thoughts" segment with Sal Licata, from WFAN and SNY in New York. This week, Jimmy goes on another rant about streaming, with the new NFL+ service as his target. Jimmy and Sal also discuss the NBA vs. NFL battle that is now set for Christmas Day, the NFL's decision to add a Black Friday game next season and much more
