I guess I could've expanded on my comment a little bit.

For the common folk, the fairweather fans, yes, the media definetly plays a part.

The 'real' fans though, they are smart enough to make their own decisions, no matter what the puppets on TV are saying. The thousands of Blue Jay fans that make the trek to Safeco year after year to watch the Jays...I can guarantee that they aren't following the Jays because the media 'brainwashed' them.
