It isn’t through hard work and solid reporting. The state’s newspapers are routinely scooped by the New York Times and ESPN—see the Cam Newton scandal and the NCAA’s massive probe into Auburn recruiting irregularities ranging from South Florida to Louisiana to Tiger Prowl to Big Cat Weekend. The state’s newspapers practice a See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil philosophy in handling Auburn and its alleged cheating.
The newspapers have instead adopted a novel approach.
Tell Auburn fans that everything is just fine! (SEE al.com for today’s effort)
And if you need some help to find out just how fine things are then talk to Auburn fans that publish Auburn fan websites.
Now isn’t that a great way to sell newspapers?
Who needs the truth?
Who wants the truth?
You won’t make anyone mad by reporting fluff.
