There They Were in Living Color!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the headline and two color pictures in the (UC)LA Tumes Wednesday, 10/13/2010 sports front page! Reporter Chris Foster wrote that Bruins "Morrell Presley and Josh Smith were suspended for UCLA's game at Oregon on Oct. 21 for 'a violation of team rules,'". Then, in living color, there were two pictures of the players. What! No cover-up! Normally, any Bruin indiscretions are put in a blurb at the very end of an article or they are never reported.

Then, on page C4, the (UC)LA Times actually published the A.P. article about former sports agent Josh Luch that stated that nine former UCLA players were paid by Luch in the early 1990's. Am I dreaming? Did they actually report that about UCLA?

Just wondering....will there be 20+ articles about these Bruins like the (UC)LA Times wrote this summer about USC?

Not Stanford University Too!

Not only is the (UC)LA Times biased for UCLA over USC, but it is biased for UCLA over Stanford University also!

In this morning's 10/3/2010 paper on page C5, the biased (UC)LA Times listed UCLA above Stanford in the Pac-10 Standings. In the conference standings, USC, Stanford and UCLA are each 1-1. However, in the overall standings, USC and Stanford are each 4-1, while UCLA is 3-2. Both USC and Stanford should be listed above the Bruins.

Amazingly, the (UC)LA Times didn't list UCLA above USC!
