Steubenville Head Football Coach Releases Statement
Steubenville High School Head Football Coach Reno Saccoccia released a statement Friday regarding CNN's coverage of the rape case that has caught national attention.
In the statement, Saccoccia discusses CNN's supposed refusal to conduct a live interview with the coach.
The statement reads:
last night's inaccurate report on CNN's Anderson Cooper Show regarding
recent events, through a representative I offered to do a live interview
with them from my home in order to set the record straight. They
refused to allow me that chance. Today, after it was made clear to them
that I would only do a live interview, a CNN reporter knocked on my door
and asked me to tape an interview. I declined.
We look forward to the proper opportunity to correct the many inaccuracies which have been reported by some media."
The second Occupy Steubenville rally is scheduled for noon at the Jefferson County Courthouse. 7News will be live streaming the rally on our website. The link to the live stream can be found here: http://bit.ly/X6I4AY
