Jamison Hensley Takes On Glenn Younes Over Ethics Of Ed Reed Interview

Ed Reed says he has a torn labrum I wrote this morning that I wasn’t buying the news that Ed Reed was injured. The basis for my argument was that Reed didn’t appear on the team’s injury report after practice on Wednesday and that the news of his labrum tear came in an interview conducted by the president of his foundation, Glenn Younes, on 105.7 The Fan.

Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reports that “Ed Reed was zipping the football at practice” yesterday and points out that he hasn’t missed a practice since early September.

Like many media outlets, Jamison Henlsey of ESPN picked up the story and wrote about it Reed’s injury in the AFC North Blog. “During an interview with a Baltimore radio station on Wednesday, safety Ed Reed said that he has a torn labrum in his shoulder,” Hensley wrote.

Upon seeing Hensley’s piece, Younes tweeted “writers who think they’re above giving proper credit for breaking news only discredit themselves. J.H. w/ 4 letter is a joke”.

Hensley caught the tweet and battled Younes over the ethics of his interview.

Glenn Younes calls Jamison Hensley "a joke"

Hensley offered to sit down with Younes and his station manager to go over journalistic standards. I’m guessing that meeting is never going to happen.
