Why the fuss over Sinclair statement?

first_imgSinclair’s statement mentions “… the troubling trend of irresponsible, one-sided news stories …” and adds, “The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media.” Continuing, the Sinclair statement notes that some media outlets publish fake stories without checking facts first, which gives a platform to some media members to espouse personal bias. Sinclair emphasizes that it’s their responsibility to pursue and report the truth and that they believe “… truth is neither politically ‘left nor right.’ ” So, where’s the controversy? Even a group of 16 political scientists and legal scholars in an essay published in the March 2018 edition of “Science” magazine (as referenced in the March 8issue of “The Atlantic”) acknowledges, “The rise of fake news highlights the erosion of long-standing institutional bulwarks against misinformation in the internet age.” Their research underscores Sinclair’s stated commitment to factual, responsible reporting.Finally, the writer uses his correspondence as a partisan departure to attack President Trump’s tweets. Yet, nowhere in Sinclair’s apolitical statement are conservative or liberal beliefs addressed.Neither WRGB nor Liz Bishop are deserving of the writer’s criticism. Could it be that the writer’s tirade is in search of a controversy?Jim RogersNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen? Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Re April 20 letter, “Shame on WRGB for selling out,” chastised WRGB and anchor Liz Bishop for reading an on-air statement from station owner Sinclair Broadcast Group. This letter captured my attention and led me to look up Sinclair’s supposedly objectionable statement, which subsequently left me perplexed as to the writer’s outrage.last_img read more

Henson: Rose Bowl tradition unlike any other

first_imgMax HensonFour years ago, I didn’t know much about Wisconsin football.As an out-of-state kid coming to UW with an obsession for all things sports, I wanted to change that. But if I knew one thing about Big Ten football it was the significance of the Rose Bowl.You’ll notice an addition has been made to my mug photo this week. The image you see is a drawing I made during my freshman year (I used to be a bit of an artist). UW came into that 2007 season with Big Ten title hopes and a No.7 preseason ranking. So, caught up in all the excitement, I designed an image representing what every Big Ten fan one day hopes to see: Their team playing in the Rose Bowl. Wisconsin ended playing in the Outback Bowl in ’07 to finish a 9-4 season.I was young(er) and na?ve but the Rose Bowl is what everyone associated with Big Ten football aspires to.Before ever stepping foot in Camp Randall Stadium, it’s clearly understood that the goal is to get to Pasadena.Those framed pictures of Ron Dayne celebrating Rose Bowl victories are hanging in numerous establishments around Madison for a reason. The intro video played at Camp Randall this season shows former players smiling with roses between their teeth for a reason. Everyone across the country knows about the Rose Bowl’s prestige and tradition. It’s what makes “The Granddaddy of them all” so special and ever since Jan. 1, 2000, UW has worked to get back to Pasadena.Now, after last night’s BCS selection show, it’s official: The Wisconsin Badgers are going back to the Rose Bowl.The die-hards out there have been waiting 11 years for this moment. And the less-experienced Badger fans are just as excited because everyone understands the magnitude of this rare opportunity.After a Big Ten championship season, the 2010 Badgers now have the chance to cap off the season with a win on one of sports’ greatest stages.And at the football awards show this past Friday, Barry Alvarez, the man with three Rose Bowl victories to his name as former coach of UW, made sure Bret Bielema’s Badgers and the fans in attendance understood how extraordinary that opportunity is.Because while all BCS bowls are great, the Rose Bowl is just on a different level.“You’re going to go to Pasadena and when you’re there take everything in. Absorb every second of it,” Alvarez said. “There is nothing like it. Just think of all the players that have ever played this game. Very few have the opportunity to play in the Rose Bowl.”Joe Thomas, Brian Calhoun, Lee Evans – all Badger greats who never stepped foot on the Rose Bowl grass.And Alvarez will be the first to tell you just how majestic that sacred field is.“There is no venue in sport prettier than taking the field at the Rose Bowl. You come out of that tunnel and you’re looking at the scoreboard and three palm trees. The field is painted up prettier than you’ve ever seen,” Alvarez said.“It’s the prettiest venue you’ve ever seen in you’re life.”Alvarez’s words hit home with senior guard John Moffitt.“He got me really excited about it,” Moffitt said. “That’s the game. That’s the venue that I’ve always wanted to play on. The Rose Bowl means a lot and it’s a great opportunity.”But after all the excitement about the Rose Bowl’s unequaled environment dies down, a very important football game will be played.The Badgers have grown into a team capable of playing with anyone in the country. They’ll square off with No. 3 Texas Christian University – a team that hasn’t lost a game in two years – for the title of Rose Bowl Champion.With that, Alvarez had a final message for the players.“Now there is one other thing – playing in the Rose Bowl is not good enough,” he said. “Win that Rose Bowl and then we’ll really celebrate.”Like every other week this season, Bielema’s Badgers will take that famed “1-0” mentality to Southern California.Wisconsin has matured into a disciplined, focused machine, and the Badgers will be ready on New Year’s Day to compete at the highest level in search of their 12th win of the season. The preparation and mindset won’t change.But on this journey to Pasadena we’ve witnessed some transformations, myself included.Much like this very columnist, senior tight end Lance Kendricks used to be a bit of an artist and Kendricks even competed in national art shows during high school.But in his final collegiate game, Kendricks will display the violent art form that is the UW tight end position. Like all of us, Kendricks has changed quite a bit throughout his college career.“Lance Kendricks was a drawer, an artist and now he’s a killer tight end,” Jay Valai said with a laugh at the awards show.Four years ago I was a freshman with high hopes and a cool drawing, a kid who couldn’t yet appreciate the work that goes into earning a trip to Pasadena. But now with over a decade gone since UW’s last appearance, Badger nation isn’t just creating another Rose Bowl fantasy.We’re all living it.Max is a senior majoring in journalism. What’s your reaction to the official announcement that Wisconsin is going back to the Rose Bowl? Let him know at [email protected] or tweet @maxhenson.last_img read more

PSG, French football braced for Neymar exit

first_imgThere is no doubting the 27-year-old forward is a brilliant player, and there is every chance he will get the success he craves — collectively and, chiefly, individually — by returning to Spain, whether with his old club or Real Madrid.However, there is every reason to believe a Kylian Mbappe-led PSG, and football in France in general, will ultimately be better off without him.The French champions’ first Ligue 1 game of the campaign last Sunday, a 3-0 win against Nimes, saw supporters unfurl banners insulting the 222 million-euro ($264 million at the time) man.Neymar himself was not involved in that game, left out amid the uncertainty over his future. He already missed the season-opening Champions Trophy against Rennes in China due to suspension.Since moving to the Parc des Princes, he has played in almost exactly half of his club’s matches.When he has been on the field he has frequently been brilliant, scoring 51 goals in 58 games, but when it has really mattered he has been absent.Foot injuries saw him miss three of the four Champions League knockout matches the Qatar-owned club have played in since his arrival. Without him, they lost in the last 16 to Real Madrid in 2018 and then to Manchester United this year.“I like Neymar, I want to keep playing with him, with Kylian and with everyone,” coach Thomas Tuchel said last weekend.“But the reality is that we must find solutions without ‘Ney’. You can’t lose Neymar and just find someone else who will do the same things.”Mbappe added that “without Neymar, it’s not the same team,” but PSG can still improve by investing in a more balanced squad — summer signings made so far under sporting director Leonardo are a step in the right direction.Centre-back Abdou Diallo, midfielders Ander Herrera, Pablo Sarabia and Idrissa Gueye have arrived. With the money recouped from the eventual sale of Neymar, not to mention the saving on his 36 million-euro annual wage, more reinforcements can be brought in.– Off-field circus –The off-field circus around Neymar has been an unwelcome distraction for too long. On the field, Paris will still have Mbappe.Nicolas Pepe starred for Lille last season before joining Arsenal © AFP/File / DENIS CHARLETThe other side of the coin is what this means for PSG’s brand. After all, Neymar’s following on social media far outstrips that of his current club.Similarly, when the French league (LFP) put their television rights up for auction last year, they capitalised on the Brazilian’s presence. Rights for the four seasons from 2020 were sold to Chinese-owned group Mediapro for 1.15 billion euros a year, a huge increase on previous deals.Television stations could be forgiven for being a little concerned now, but LFP chief Didier Quillot remains bullish.“It’s always better to have several stars in your league. That said, during the Champions Trophy in China, it was Kylian Mbappe who was the star. His popularity is growing around the world,” he told sports daily L’Equipe.In any case, Ligue 1 is in a constant state of renewal, forever prepared to see star players move abroad. Nicolas Pepe, Ferland Mendy, Tanguy Ndombele and Ismaila Sarr have all left this summer.The game in France can move on from Neymar, and everyone will be relieved to let the football on the field do the talking if and when he departs.Ligue 1 fixtures this weekend (GMT)FridayLyon v Angers (1845)SaturdayNantes v Marseille (1530), Amiens v Lille, Bordeaux v Montpellier, Metz v Monaco, Nimes v Nice, Toulouse v Dijon (all 1800)SundaySaint-Etienne v Brest (1300), Reims v Strasbourg (1500), Rennes v Paris Saint-Germain (1900)0Shares0000(Visited 38 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Could the potential departure of Neymar ultimately prove to be a positive for Paris Saint-Germain and French football? © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Aug 15 – The saga of Neymar’s seemingly inevitable departure from Paris Saint-Germain is proving a long, drawn out affair bringing the curtain down on what will ultimately feel like a fleeting and failed experiment.Having arrived in France in 2017 hoping a world-record transfer to PSG would help him emerge from the shadow of Lionel Messi at Barcelona and win the Ballon d’Or, two years on he looks set to leave with his reputation having taken a serious hit.last_img read more
