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!
