PRWeek examines why American Airlines “Strollergate” didn’t rise to the level that United Airlines experienced. From reporter Diana Bradley:

“…By responding to its own incident quickly, American Airlines halted the matter from blowing up, crisis experts say. Just a few hours after the video was published on Facebook, the airline company issued a statement, which it put on its website. In the statement, the airline apologized, said it had launched an investigation to obtain the facts, noted it had upgraded the family affected to first class, and added it had suspended the flight attendant involved.”

The long-rumored mass layoffs at ESPN may begin next week, and they may be larger than expected. From Matt Bonesteel at the Washington Post:

Are the Cleveland Police Department and the city’s CBS affiliate conspiring to hide the identity of a projected first-round NFL prospect accused of sexual assault so his draft status won’t be hurt? It would seem so. Barry Petchesky reports:

A player who is expected to go in the first round of Thursday’s NFL draft has been accused of sexual assault, according to Cleveland 19 News. But this is a weird one: The station is not naming the player, despite having a statement from his attorney, because the cops are dragging their feet on filing a police report.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned the name of the football player, and not surprisingly he is a local star.
