The Tennessean Goes to White Castle

Posted By on Thu, Apr 24, 2008 at 4:01 PM

Tomorrow it will have been one week since the City Paper's Terry McCormick broke the news that a local drug dealer named Corey Cecil allegedly sold high-quality marijuana to several members of the Titans between 2003 and 2005. And still, there's not a word of it in The Tennessean. What are they smoking down there? The allegations that some of our Titans were toking come from the messy appeal of a former Nashville cop, Charles R. Williams, who was sentenced to federal prison for conspiring with Cecil to steal cash and drugs from local dealers by staging phony busts. Cecil wound up serving as a state's witness against Williams, who just happens to be his uncle. Now, as Williams tries to reverse his sentence, more details about his nephew's sordid past are coming to light—some of which hint at a burgeoning scandal involving our professional football team. Does this sound like something a daily newspaper should cover? A word of advice to our daily: Just because you don't cover a story, that doesn't necessarily mean it isn't happening.
