They're not keeping the story alive because they think it's "important" journalism, like the steroid scandal people are actually sick of hearing about. ESPN sees its Tebow ratings. Websites see their Tebow page views. They're filling a demand.USA Today
So ESPN and all the other sites railing on ESPN, they are just filling a demand created by the two groups -- Tebow lovers and haters. Speaking of haters.

When will tebow die?— David Rodrigues (@DukeOfErie) June 11, 2013
Look, Tim Tebow may or may not be a terrible quarterback, but allow us now to give him credit for just being the man he his and doing his best with what he's got.
It is interesting, let us also note, the level of vitriol directed at his faith and his decision to have sex only with his wife (someday).
If Tim Tebow were Muslim, Buddhist, or atheist, would others feel comfortable enough to abuse him based on his life choices and personal beliefs? Part of me says no: People hate him (like they hate Jesus) because of his fanatical, misguided followers. Another part of me says yes: The internet is a big place, and any quarterback with fanatical followers will have fanatical haters.
MEANWHILE IN THE REAL WORLD:
So the #PS4 plays used games, is region-free, lets you use Netflix without paying extra, has better tech specs, and is $100 less. Damn.— Michael (@DarthSontin) June 11, 2013
