Dan Tordjman, a TV reporter in Charlotte, N.C., apologized for tweeting on Sept. 20 that Robinson Cano tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
In a three-tweet series on Oct. 4, Tjordman wrote:
On 9/20 I tweeted I expected #MLB to announce @RobinsonCano tested positive for PEDs. This information was FALSE. (cont'd)
I, @CoxMediaGroup, and @WSOC_TV all apologize to Mr. #Cano, and to the #Yankees and their fans. (cont'd)
I shouldn't have posted false info about #Cano, and afterward, I should've admitted it was false and apologized right away. I am very sorry.
Those were Tordjman's first tweets since Sept. 20. The original tweet has been deleted from his timeline, but here's what it said:
"Can't confirm this but I'm hearing that Robinson #Cano tested positive for PEDs. Announcement from #MLB coming shortly."
Later that night, Tordjman tweeted:
"Good God. Everyone calm down. Don't know how clearly I can state it -- I HAVE NO CONFIRMATION THAT CANO PED RUMOR IS TRUE."
