Big Ben Statement, Apology, Overkill

Ben Roethlisberger issued a statement through the Pittsburgh Steelers concerning his motorcycle accident. I will not go into details because frankly I am quite sick of hearing it recited by the Pittsburgh media over and over again. The Pittsburgh TV media will not recite the statement in its entirety. Instead, they will recite a few sentences, add some video clips or comments from fans, stop, go on to another totally unrelated story, then recite a few more sentences, and continue this relentless cycle. His whole statement gets spread out across the entire newscast. Unbelievable. And the print media, like the Post Gazette, is doing the same thing. It the media keeps reciting the whole damn statement, I will start to memorize it, almost like the pledge of allegiance.
