Is ESPN giving Big Ben Roethlisberger a pass?

At lunch I was glued into the discussion on KLAC 570-AM between Steve Hartman and Chris Myers debating ESPN’s stance not to report the alleged sexual assault civil suit against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, even though many other news outlets have already reported it. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist John Gonzalez gives you more background and his opinion. What do you think?

“At this point, we are not reporting the allegations against Ben Roethlisberger because no criminal complaint has been filed,” an ESPN spokesman told Gonzalez. “As far as we know, this is a civil lawsuit that Roethlisberger has yet to address publicly.”
