What do you headline on your major news website on one of the busier days? A good story about Alabama’s basketball team in the NIT? The scandal rocking Auburn with allegations of student-athletes receiving illegal benefits like cash for sacks in the Iron Bowl?
Of course not. If you are al.com, a division of Advance Internet of Advance Publications you headline how this Auburn scandal is linked to Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban. Below is a screen capture of the website at about 11:30 p.m. on the night the HBO Real Sports special on Auburn’s alleged cheating aired.
Good grief. So much for journalism in this state.
