Stand-up rebuttal by Alyson Footer

In Alyson Footer's FootNotes blog, she takes some time to address Jon Heyman's column that included taking Ed Wade to task for lying to Footer. Note her rebuttal:

Ed Wade does not owe me an apology, because Ed Wade never lied to me. Let me say it again -- Ed Wade has never lied to me.

Ever.

I have been working with him for a year and a half. I have had many candid conversations with him over time and the one thing he guaranteed me is that if I ever approached him with something regarding rumors -- as long as they weren't trade rumors, because it's against the rules for teams to comment on players under contract other teams -- if I was headed in the right direction, he would never flat out tell me I was wrong.


Now whether or not this is what's on her heart, or she's protecting a relationship with the General Manager of the club she covers, this is pretty stand-up. What's with all the Happy Journalism these days surrounding the P-ez signing?
