What Do They Have in COMMON?

What do Kansas State, Central Michigan, Clemson, Notre Dame and LOSER UCLA all have in COMMON in today's sports page?

All of them received COLOR pictures "inside" the (UC)LA Times!

Why is VICTORIUS USC different?

The Trojans only received BLACK and WHITE pictures "inside" the (UC)LA Times!

When will the BIAS for UCLA over USC ever end?

It's as Simple as BLACK and WHITE!!!!

The (UC)LA Times is at it again!

This morning's sports section front page featured a large COLOR picture of Bruin Brett Hundley and a two page Bill Plaschke article with another picture of Hundley on page C6.

What is BLACK and WHITE?

USC's Curtis McNeal gets a small BLACK and WHITE picture and mention on page C7.

Four days in a row for the (UC)LA Times blatantly featuring UCLA over USC!!!!

When will the BIAS ever end?

Just WHO Really Plays in the City of Los Angeles?

Leaving New York City after seeing USC beat Syracuse 42-29, I bought a New York Times.  There was little coverage about the USC victory.  That's to be expected in New York City.

Arriving home, I opened up the Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012 (UC)LA Times sports page.  Top billing and larger color pictures went to UCLA's victory over Nebraska.  USC's victory was relegated to the bottom of the front page with a smaller color picture.

USC resides and plays in the city of Los Angeles.  UCLA does not!

Then, in Monday's, Sept. 10th sports page, UCLA got a picture with its article on C8, USC got NO picture.

Now, in Tuesday's, Sept 11th sports page, Bruin Jonathan Franklin has a front page color picture, two page article and another color picture on page C7.  Trojan Matt Barkley is relegated to a smaller black and white picture on page C6.

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

Just WHO is Steve Johnson?

(UC)LA Times writer Diane Pucin surely doesn't know!  Her article this morning, entitled "Williams advances to fourth round" included five paragraphs about a 19 year old from Nebraska named Jack Sock.  This player received a wild card into the  main draw, and he lost to Nicolas Almagro in the U.S. Open yesterday.

What about USC's Steve Johnson?  Just WHO is Steve Johnson?  Steve is a USC Men's Tennis Team alumnus who just graduated in May 2012.  Steve helped USC win FOUR NCAA National Tennis Championships in a row!  Steve just won back-t-back NCAA Single titiles!  Steve is a local star from Orange.

Steve is still competing in the U.S. Open!  He will be competing against Richard Gasquet (13) in the Grandstand today.

Why doesn't Diane Pucin know WHO Steve Johnson is?  She would know, if Steve was a Bruin.  But he is a TROJAN!
