Coming off the Oklahoma State investigation by Sports Illustrated and by the media’s subsequent investigation of SI, we talk to the fantastic John Koblin, who writes for Deadspin.com and is one of the top media critics in our field. In our chat, we discuss media-on-media criticism in the Twitterverse and whether it’s helpful for the greater good, and we chat about whether it’s OK to pay sources for information and other incriminating evidence. Plus, we talk about the state of Sports Illustrated and how Deadspin broke the Manti Te’o story.

Also, we discuss how Koblin investigated and broke the a story about how an ESPN.com columnist named Sarah Phillips was scamming readers. Here’s that story from Koblin.

Here’s some of what we talked about (and some of what we didn’t).
