Adam Schefter is attempting to tweet through his current email scandal on Twitter and his strategy doesn’t seem to be working.

On Tuesday night, Schefter found himself at the center of the WFT email scandal after an old email in which he asks former WFT president Bruce Allen if he wanted an unpublished story “tweaked” got leaked in a story by the LA Times.

After getting heavily criticized by journalists over his email exchange with Allen, Schefter defended himself during an appearance on 95.7 The Fanatic.

“I’ve learned for a long time in this business not to discuss sources, or the process, or how stories are done,” said Schefter. “But I would just say that it’s a common practice to run information past sources. And in this particular case, during a labor intensive lockout that was a complicated subject that was new to understand. I took the extra rare step to run information past one of the people that I was talking to. You know, it was an important story to fans; a host of others, and that’s the situation.”

Schefter would later go on Twitter to tweet like nothing had happened and people are absolutely crushing him in the comments section for attempting to ignore the scandal.
