My Packer fan friend Rob, a sometimes commenter at PV, sent me the following in an email:
how the media works: sports illustrated.com headline: former viking robinson gets 90 days jail.
not: 'packers wr robinson gets 90 days jail.' nice huh? what clearer
illustration of bias and prejudice in the media can you find?
It's true: go see for yourself. It's possible that since this is an AP story picked up in St. Peter, MN, the focus is framed around a Minnesota connection. But when using that AP story, isn't it a bit awkward for SI to use that headline on its NFL page?
