Let me start this post off by saying i'm not a big fan of Brooks, so here we go:
Isn't that what the news does. All reporters are suppose to be "neutral" but usually their personal views makes it into their writing/reporting. Whether it be in sports, politics, or wars. If you are a conservative, you are going to put a conservative spin on things. If you are a liberal, you are going to but a liberal spin on things. If you think that a player/coach is not a good fit on the professional sports team you are paid to cover, then your personal opinion is going to come out in your articles. He gets paid to write things that are interesting, cause controversy, and in turn cause a debate between readers. He just did his job, yet again.
To a more drastic degree, look at Eklund. People mock him on here like crazy, but they still go to his website and partake in discussions on his articles. The guy is making a living off the website, no matter how illegitimate he is.
So no, he is not a big jerk for writing these articles. He's doing his job, and doing it well. Same thing happens in politics, but sometimes on a much larger scale. It all depends on the overall views of the corporation that owns the news outlet. That is how views on things get manipulated.
