NFL insider Adam Schefter was one of the first people to report on the Dalvin Cook domestic abuse story. He received information straight from Cook's agent and put out what he was told.
As the story has unfolded it's clear there is more to it than Cook being the victim of domestic abuse and an extortion attempt. The Vikings running back is standing by his original version of the story and is expected to play this weekend.
Schefter gave an update on the story and apologized for the way he initially reported the story.
"In a case like this, it’s important to reach out to all sides for information and comment. When I got the information the other night, I didn’t do that. And I could’ve done a better job of reaching out to the other people, especially on a story as sensitive and significant as this. It’s a reminder to slow down."

I'm sure Schefter was told to apologize after people took issue with his initial reporting of the story. To me there's nothing to really apologize for. Sure he put out Cook's side first, but unless he never added the other side as it unfolded and just stuck with Cook's version, he has nothing to apologize for.
