Whose Article Is It Anyway?

After reading (UC)LA Times sportswriter Chris Foster's "USC defends its home-court advantage" article this morning, I wondered, "Whose article is it anyway? USC's or UCLA's?

Mr. Foster mentioned either UCLA, Pauley Pavilion or a Bruin basketball player, TWELVE times in his article. Isn't Mr. Foster the USC beat writer?

Will the UCLA bias ever end?

"No Call" Hall has changed his name!

Kudos to (UC)LA Times reporter Chris Foster for exposing Referee David Hall as a biased referee in his Monday 2/16/09 article. Referee Hall was out of position to make the charging call on USC's Daniel Hackett, and he over ruled fellow referee Randy McCall's correct call. Mr. Hall should never be allowed to referee in a USC men's basketball game again! Henceforth, he is no longer known to Trojans everywhere as "No Call" Hall....he is now "BAD CALL" Hall !!!

The USC Women of Troy Beat the UCLA Lady Bruins yesterday,

BUT, they LOST in the (UC)LA Times next day game coverage!!!!

In this morning's article entitled, "LeNoir, Oliver lead Trojans past Bruins", the article started out unbiased. Then the unknown author, who wrote the article from "Wire Reports" since he or she did not attend the game, wrote TWO paragraphs about the victorious USC women and Camille LeNoir's accomplishments and FOUR paragraphs touting three UCLA player's accomplishments. Twice as much coverage about the losing Bruins!

When will the bias ever end?

I'm Still Waiting and Waiting.....

I anxiously opened up this morning's (UC)LA Times to read their article about the Laker's victory over the Memphis Grizzlies....Anxiously looking for a quarter page color picture and two page article about former USC player, O.J. Mayo. There was NOTHING!!!!

Afterall, when the Lakers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on 12/14/08, the next day the (UC)LA Times praised Kevin Love (in a two page article) for his illustrious college career at UCLA and the 2 points that he scored against the Lakers.

This morning, (UC)LA Times writer Mike Bresnahan wrote one sentence about O.J.Mayo. I quote, "Former USC standout O.J. Mayo had 15 points for the Grizzlies". TEN words, ONLY! To add insult to injury, Mr. Bresnahan was wrong. O.J. actually scored 21 points!

I'm Still Waiting and Waiting for the BIAS to end!!!!!
