If you don't kiss up to the media, they will do their best to bury you. Bonds has never been nice to the media - or anyone for that matter. While Clemens isn't exactly Sean Casey to the media, he gives them what they want. Also, there is a direct link to Bonds and steroids. He has even admitted taking them - unknowingly, of course. There is enough circumstantial evidence against Bonds while there is only rumor and innuendo with Clemens.
