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?
