Truly a UCLA Times!

Today's Tuesday 3/29/2011 UCLA Times Sports Page was unBEARable to read. UCLA players were featured on every other page.

Bruin Tyler Honeycutt hires an agent and declares for the NBA Draft. He gets a 6x8 color picture and an article on the front page.

When USC's Nick Vucevic hired an agent and declared for the NBA Draft last Friday 3/25/11, he got a small black and white file photo on a back page the next day and a small article. BIAS!

Another article about Bruin Chase Utley's injury appears on page C3. BIAS!

Page C5's headline reads, "Ayers needs to make speedy recovery". Reporter Sam Farmer's article contained 11 paragraphs about UCLA football players and 6 paragraphs about USC football players. BIAS!

Same C5 page has Chris Foster's half-page article about UCLA's Spring Football. BIAS!

Page C6 has the Ben Bloch Bruin article, "Lee will announce decision today". BIAS!

Finally, on page C10 in "THE DAY IN SPORTS", the UCLA Times reported that USC Nikola Vucevic was selected as an honorable mention on the Associated Press All-American Team. What an Honor! No Bruins were selected. Why wasn't Nikola's All-American selection reported on the front page? BIAS!

The (UC)LA Times is unBEARably biased for UCLA over USC!

The USC Women of Troy are Still Playing!!!

The USC Women of Troy Basketball Team (23-12) has won its way into the WNIT Final Four!

Where are any (UC)LA Times interviews, pictures or articles written by real-life reporters, not just facts gleaned from a box score, about USC's 87-70 victory over Colorado yesterday?

USC set a team record (77%) for three-point percentage in the victory yesterday!

Trojan Ashley Corral made seven of eight three-point shots on her way to scoring a career-high 32 points! Where is a picture of Ashley?

The (UC)LA Times featured UCLA's one win and one loss in the second round of the NCAA women's tournament with stories written by reporter-on-location, Gary Klein and pictures. We even got to read about Bruin Coach Nikki Caldwell's constant whining about seeding and location. The Bruins were eliminated by 11th seed Gonzaga!

Will the UCLA BIAS over USC ever end?

Meanwhile, the Trojans will play on to VICTORY this Wednesday, 3/30/11 night!

Will the (UC)LA Times Learn From Its Mistakes?

What a difference between the (UC)LA Times opinion of VCU today, Monday, 3/28/11 and two weeks ago when VCU beat USC in the NCAA play-in game.

Saturday, March 19, 2011 Viewpoint Letters were vicious. Words such as "crummy Virginia Commonwealth, USC can now hang a "First Four" banner in the Galen Center, and USC's football team could have scored more than 22 points against VCU in the first half." VICIOUS!

Surprisingly, the (UC)LA Times printed Wayne Muramatsu's letter which rightly criticized all the vicious letters that were printed the previous week about VCU and USC.

Now, the (UC)LA Times had to eat crow and publish Chris Dufresne's complimentary article and two pictures about VCU winning its way to the Final Four.

The vicious Viewpoint Letters should never have been published!

The BIAS against USC and VCU ended with embarrassment!

Will the (UC)LA Times ever learn from its mistakes? Will it ever learn a lesson?

Only Too Late for USC!

The Stanford Women beat North Carolina last night 72-65. That NCAA Women's game ended after 9:30 p.m. The (UC)LA Times published an article about the win in today's edition.

When the USC Men's Basketball Team beat Washington at Seattle 62-60 on Saturday March 5, 2011, the biased (UC)LA Times published no article, not even the score in their Sunday, March 6th edition.

Their excuse: The USC victory ended after 9:30 p.m.

Why is the 9:30 p.m. rule applied only to USC Men's Basketball?

The (UC)LA Times BIAS for anybody, men or women, over USC lives on forever!

Not DONE Yet!!

The USC Women of Troy Basketball Team just defeated BYU 62-50 to advance to the WNIT semi-finals. The Trojans are Not DONE Yet at 22-12!

Will the (UC)LA Times print an article about the victory in tomorrow's paper? Will there be a picture? Or, will there be another article about their beloved, but DONE, Bruin Basketball?

Will the UCLA bias over USC finally be DONE?

What's DONE is DONE!!!

In this morning's Wednesday, 3/23/11 (UC)LA Times sports page, Ben Bolch and Gary Klein each wrote an article about UCLA's men's and women's basketball teams, respectively. Both UCLA teams are DONE with their seasons! DONE and both eliminated in the second round from the NCAA tournaments. What's DONE is DONE!

The USC Women's Basketball Team (21-12) is still competing in the third round of the WNIT Tournament tonight at BYU. The Women of Troy are NOT DONE!

So, why was there no mention of USC's 6:00 p.m. game tonight? So, why was there no article?

The (UC)LA Times is biased for UCLA over USC!!!!

When will this everlasting BIAS be DONE?

No Deadline Time for Washington and Washington State!

Last Sunday, March 6, 2011, the BIASED (UC)LA Times refused to report that the USC Men's Basketball Team defeated the Washington Huskies 62-60 in Seattle. Their excuse was that "The USC-Washington Saturday night did not end until after this edition's deadline." The USC victory ended at 9:30 p.m.

Blatantly, the same (UC)LA Times just reported the Pac-10 Men's Basketball Tournament score of the Washington vs. Washington State game that ended at 10:30 p.m. last night. Reporters Ben Bolch (UCLA beat writer) and Baxter Holmes (USC beat writer) even published an article about the Washington 89-87 victory. Why was the Friday's edition's deadline extended for the Huskies and not for the Trojans last Sunday?

USC got NO article and No score reported on Sunday 3/6/11.

The (UC)LA Times is not only biased for UCLA over USC, but also Washington and Washington State over USC. Whose hometown is this anyway?

Will the BIAS ever end?

Sunday, March 6, 2011

Oh Where? Oh Where?

Has the USC Men's Basketball Team Gone?

NOWHERE! In the (UC)LA Times!

The Trojans upset the Washington Huskies last night in Seattle by the score of 62 to 60. The (UC)LA Times published NO article, NO picture and NO score of the USC victory in today's Sunday, 3/6/11 edition. Their excuse....the game "did not end until after this editions's deadline."

The Daily News published an article and a picture today of USC's Nikola Vucevic in reporter Tim Booth's article entitled "Trojans triumph against Huskies".

What about the UCLA football losses that ended after 9:30 p.m. last fall? The biased (UC)LA Times always features a front page picture and article of the Bruins, win or lose.

A UCLA football LOSS past the (UC)LA Times deadline time is published while a USC basketball WIN is NOT!

Oh, When? Oh, When? Will the Bruin BIAS over USC ever end?

In this morning's (UC)LA Times ETC. section, USC's Steve Johnson was listed as earning a qualifying draw wild card in the upcoming BNP Paribas Open. Kudos to the Staff for mentioning that Steve is a Trojan!

Then, at the end of the same paragraph, the "same" (UC)LA Times mentioned that Maria Sanchez also earned a qualifying draw wild card in the same BNP Paribas Open. However, the Staff writers neglected to write that Maria is the #1 Women's Collegiate Player in the nation, and that she is a Trojan!

Is this bias or sexism, or both?
