YES! and NO!

YES!  (UC)LA Times sportswriter, Gary Klein, actually wrote an article with a TITLE about USC's ace tennis player Steve Johnson.  Steve and his teammates just won a fourth NCAA Men's Tennis Team Title in a row!  Steve just won his back-to-back Men's NCAA Singles Title yesterday, when he won 72 consecutive singles matches.  An NCAA first!

NO!  Where is a PICTURE of the USC Men's Tennis Team?  Where is a PICTURE of Steve?

WHY?  The (UC)LA Times has featured UCLA golfer Patrick Cantlay in several articles with pictures.  He has not won any titles this year!  There have been ZERO feature articles and pictures for USC's Steve Johnson!

When will the (UC)LA Times BIAS for UCLA over USC ever end?

NO! and NO!

USC Senior, Steve Johnson, won the NCAA Men's Singles Championship this morning.  He finished his USC career with FOUR consecutive Team Championships!  Steve won 72 consecutive singles victories after his historic victory today!  He is the FIRST collegiate tennis player to win back-to-back Team Championships and Singles Championships!

Will the (UC)LA Times print a picture of Steve in its sports section tomorrow?

Will the (UC)LA Times publish an article with a separate title about Steve's accomplishments?

NO! and NO!  He'll be lucky to get a mere mention in their ETC. Section.

WHY?  Steve Johnson is a TROJAN, not a Bruin!

Triple BOGEY you, (UC)LA Times!!!

When your beloved Lady Bruins moved into second place after the second day of the NCAA Women's Golf Championships, your sports page (Thursday, 5/24/12) gave the Lady Bruins a large headline and article in the "ETC." section.

When USC's Women of Troy catapulted into second place on the third day of the NCAA Women's Golf Championships, your sports page this morning gave the Women of Troy a headline that was HALF the size of the Bruin's headline and a mere mention of the accomplishment in the "ETC." section.  The article gave more press to the Bruins than the Trojans!

When will the (UC)LA Times BIAS for UCLA over USC ever end?

A BLUE Viewpoint

Tomorrow's (UC)LA Times "Sports Viewpoint" will feature at least one letter written by a Bruin about USC's Simione Vehikite.  There will be an insinuation that all Trojans are criminals.   No where will there be a mention of any UCLA athletes that have run afoul of the law.  Some recent UCLA "criminals" that the (UC)LA Times neglected in its coverage are Joshua Shirley, Shaquille Richardson, Paul Richardson, recruit Seantrel Henderson, and Jerime Anderson.  There were no "Sports Viewpoint" letters published about them.

When will the (UC)LA Times BIAS for UCLA over USC ever end?

Double BOGEY you, (UC)LA Times!!

Number #1 seeded USC wins the Women's Central Region NCAA Golf by 25 strokes! Women of Troy Lisa McCloskey tied for the first place medal.   Fellow USC team members, Sophia Popov and Doris Chen finished in the Top Ten.   Does the (UC)LA Times even mention that USC played in the Central Region?  NO!

The (UC)LA Times only reported about the NCAA Women's Golf Western Regional.  Their beloved Lady Bruins tied for first place in that regional.

Will the (UC)LA Times BIAS for UCLA over USC ever end?

BOGEY you, (UC)LA Times!

The (UC)LA Times reported the NCAA Women's Western Regional Golf standings in its "College Golf"  section this morning.  Naturally, UCLA Women's Golf is in this regional.  UCLA was in third place the first day.

USC Women of Troy Golf is competing in the NCAA Women's Central Regional.  USC finished the first day in FIRST PLACE.  Naturally, the (UC)LA Times did not even report the Trojan's scores in their "College Golf" section.

When will the (UC)LA Times BIAS for the Bruins over the Trojans ever end?

Just Wondering....

Just Wondering.....

Congratualtions to the U.C. Irvine Anteaters on winning the National Championship in Men's Volleyball last night at the Galen Center.

"Just Wondering..." if USC had won the title last night if the article written by Gary Klein and the large picture would have been the same. 

OR, would there have been NO picture and a small paragraph in the ETC. section, like the ones that the USC Men's Tennis Team received when the Trojans won their THIRD NCAA title in a row on May 24, 2011 AND that the USC Men's Water Polo Team received when the Trojans won their FOURTH NCAA title in a row on December 4, 2011?

"Just Wondering..." Will the negative attitude and BIAS against USC by the (UC)LA Times ever end?
