The media is not supposed to show bias. That's one of the first rules of journalism. There's a big problem with it.
All these Scout and Rivals sites have credentialed reporters at press conferences. They're hardly hiding their biases. The Reds' announcers are part of the media. Are they not supposed to show bias towards the Reds? Should Marty B. be fired for excitedly shouting "This one belongs to the Reds" after a walkoff HR?
Media bias in certain situations is fine....as long as you're not trying to hide it.
