Ann Killion of the SF Chronicle Steps In It

Embedded image permalink Ann Killion is a sports columnist for the Chronicle-- who stepped into it heavily on Saturday.


Killion curiously tries to be cute here on Twitter. (Since deleted). The "rapist" she refers to is Florida State QB, Jameis Winston. Later, Killion tweeted out, "alleged rapist."


Killion will be given a pass by her sheep Bay Area brethren sporting media but Twitter world may not be so forgiving.


Meanwhile, the Chron is getting lots of pub.

  2. Ann Killion, was he ever convicted of rape? I wonder how the Chron feels about one of their reporters slandering someone.

    1. And OJ wasn't convicted of murder, Condi Rice never convicted of war crimes.

    2. Thus you can't legally accuse OJ of being a murderer. Your point?

      War crimes is too vague a term that would have to be defined before we could get to culpability issues.

      And yes, I am not Christine but I *am* a lawyer.

    3. One does not have to be convicted of rape or murder to be a rapist or murderer.

    4. I thought we could call the murdering OJ a murderer because he did lose in the civil trial

  3. My jaw dropped when I read that tweet yesterday. And her "apology" was about as insincere as you can get and only made the situation worse.

  5. This will all be swept under the rug. The San Jose Monkey News will ignore this tweet as if nothing occurred. There will be no outrage. There will be no finger wagging. That is only reserved for out of town sports writers who live in the outbacks.

  9. How tall is Ann? Her Twitter says she's "height challenged". She also has a picture of Amy G on there and Amy is towering over her.

    1. Killion is 5-foot-nothing. She has short person's syndrome. Lucky to have a job. She should shut it.

  11. I always found her attitude and writing as if shes talking down to her readers. Typical "Marinite".
    Newsflash: Anne - your shit DOES stink.And so does your writing.
    Oh, and Baby - update that wardrobe - the "Goodwill" look is definitely out if you're on TV...
    Rapist.... nice comment,Troll.

  12. It's up to the people who read this blog to keep it in the forefront. The only reason why this woman has a job is because she's a woman. The Chronicle doesn't need another columnist. But it looks good to have a woman who writes about sports. Seriously: Ostlter (he's funny), Jenkins (self-serving and would rather write about baseball and surfing) and there's Saracevic (the editor). The Chron is losing money. Lop off the bitch.

  13. Next, they'll be calling Bill Cosby a rapist!

    1. Excellent response.

      Winston is not only clearly a POS who HAS broken other laws, it IS likely he is a rapist. Has he been convicted? No. Has the legal process been incorrectly interfered with to protect Winston? HELL YES!

  14. Ann Killion wishes she was a man but she's not so she covers sports and does so recklessly

  15. She is nominated as AP Sports Writer of the Year… Simple don't write things on twitter you don't want to publish in a newspaper.

  16. Well Colin Kaerpernick must be a rapist too.
