WFAN's Mark Chernoff Defends Francesa as Directionally Challenged

A reader sent the letter WFAN to Suspend Mike Francesa for "acts of journalistic fraud"? to WFAN Operations Manager Mark Chernoff. Chernoff's reply?

As you point out, Mike was corrected on the location. Not sure what the big deal is about that. Also, there’s often confusion between Ramapo , NY and Ramapo, NJ…right next to each other.

Got that? So Francesa wasn't lying...he's just confused and unprepared. So the reader replied:

So none of the New Jersey law enforcement officials that he claimed to have spoken to in his monologue corrected him on that? Sure. Right.

Folks aren't upset he confused Ramapo NY and Ramapo NJ - he fabricated sources based on the fact that he thought it took place in NJ - that is unacceptable.

He called Chris Carlin a clown for supposedly making up sources regarding Jim Calhoun with less proof.


And Chernoff backed off a bit but still defended Big Mike:

He spoke to law authorities.

In other words - Mike will not be punished by WFAN. (Don't expect any journalistic credibility out of him...ever)
