Did He Really Deserve This?

This morning's (UC)LA Times sports page featured a large, bold headline in "THE DAY IN SPORTS" that read, "UCLA's Giron wins NCAA tennis title." Then, there was a 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 COLOR picture of Bruin Marco Giron!

When USC Men's Tennis Team won the TEAM NCAA Championship on May 20, 2014, the (UC)LA Times published only a small paragraph about USC's fifth, out of the last six NCAA Men's Tennis Championships. NO PICTURE!

Why is an individual champion featured incredibly more than a team champion?

When he is a Bruin, not a Trojan!

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

It's Always UCLA...

The USC Men's Tennis Team just won the NCAA Championship this evening. The Trojans have won five of the last six national championships! It is their 21st NCAA Tennis Title! The UCLA Lady Bruins also won the NCAA Championship this afternoon. Who will get a picture, a headline and a longer article in tomorrow's (UC)LA Times sports page? It's always UCLA! When will the (UC)LA Times B I A S for UCLA over USC ever end?
