TMZ releases video of Ray Rice punching his fiancée
Molly Yanity, assistant professor of journalism who teaches in the graduate sports journalism program, is available to discuss the video of Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens assaulting his fiancée posted on TMZ.
"The video brings up so many issues that have been simmering below the surface, among them ESPN's news coverage, the violence in the game itself and, of course, the paltry two-game suspension of Rice," said Yanity, a former sports writer for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer who holds a doctorate from Ohio University. "But, if you're looking for a moral compass, don't look to either the NFL or ESPN."
To schedule an interview with Yanity, please call John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations, at 203-206-4449 (cell) or 203-582-5359 (office).
