CNN - A 2nd Source Confirms Manning Received HGH




CNN – Al Jazeera says it had a second, “impeccably placed” source to back up the network’s recent assertion that human growth hormone shipments were provided to Peyton Manning’s wife. The network’s documentary “The Dark Side” attributed the charge to Charlie Sly, a former worker at the Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine where Manning was treated. On undercover tapes aired by Al Jazeera, Sly said “all the time we would be sending Ashley Manning drugs. Like growth hormone, all the time, everywhere, Florida. And it would never be under Peyton’s name, it would always be under her name.” Sly subsequently recanted what he said on the tapes, calling his statements “absolutely false and incorrect.” But Al Jazeera reporter Deborah Davies is standing by the statements. In an interview on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources,” she said “we had a second source” that corroborated Sly’s information. Davies said she could not identify the anonymous source, but called the person “absolutely impeccably placed, knowledgeable, and credible,” someone who gave Al Jazeera more confidence in what Sly said on tape. She said the source confirmed that shipments of HGH, or human growth hormone, were “repeatedly sent to Ashley Manning in Florida and other places in the U.S.” Ashley Manning has not denied receiving shipments of HGH. But Peyton Manning has denied taking any of it. He called the overall report “garbage” and told ESPN “any medical treatments that my wife received, that’s her business. That has nothing to do with me.”


Listen I don’t want to talk about this story anymore. I really don’t. To me the fact that Peyton Manning is a cheater is a non story. I don’t care that he took HGH. I don’t care that he lied about it. I mean Rodney Harrison took HGH. Guys take HGH. Yes it’s illegal. Yes he should be suspended for 4 games. But the fact Peyton Manning is a cheater doesn’t change my view of him. I don’t care about guys using steroids.

However the fact that this story isn’t headline news is disgusting and disturbing to me as an American.  I feel like I have a moral obligation to discuss it. The fact that Al Jazeera and CNN both said yesterday that there was a 2nd source confirming the HGH shipments to the Mannings and nobody even blinks is surreal. What would have happened if this was Tom Brady? It would be front page news on every media outlet in the world. Roger Goodell would be leaking information left and right. It would be a national conspiracy. We would have already lost 5 draft picks. But because it’s Peyton Manning it’s being swept under the rug. People are protecting him at every turn. That’s why I have to keep blogging this story. Not because I want to but because I need to remind people of the hypocrisy of the media. To remind people just how biased everybody is against the Patriots. The North Remembers indeed.
