Who is Kim Mulkey?

Kim Mulkey on Saturday 23rd of March in the press conference, threatened to the Washington Post.

Kim Mulkey slams the newspaper and referring a specific “hit piece” of hers. She claims that the Washington Post spent two years working on a post. And due to this, she felt the need to address the desperate measures that she took.

What happened at the Press conference?

The LSU women’s basketball coach, Kim Mulkey, responded to a rumored article from the Post with a seething four-minute statement on Saturday between March Madness games, threatening them with a lawsuit and claiming that the reporter involved acted unethically.

“Former players have told me that The Washington Post has contacted them and offered to let them be anonymous in a story if they say negative things about me. The Washington Post has called former disgruntled players to get negative quotes to include in their story. They’re ignoring the 40-plus years of positive stories that they have heard from people about me.” She told in the press conference.

While the rumored article remains in the dark, which isn’t out yet, the arguments and the structure addressed in the article remain unclear.

She took particular issue while claiming the reporter had sent a list of a dozen questions to LSU on Tuesday. And also with a request for a response on Thursday. Ahead of the Tigers’ NCAA tournament opener against Rice.

“This was a ridiculous deadline that LSU and I could not possibly meet and the reporter knew it. It was just an attempt to prevent me from commenting and distract us from this tournament. It ain’t gonna work buddy.” She said.

Kim Mulkey did not disclose the name of the reporter. After two years of requesting an interview with her, the reporter regardless sent the deadline.
