Default Fox Sports fakes headlines to bash Cutler

During the fourth quarter of the Bears-Falcons season opener, Fox turned its attention to Jay Cutler. Announcers Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston — known as “Moose” during his playing days — addressed Cutler’s injury in the NFC championship game against Green Bay, including questions and criticism that arose concerning the nature of his injury and his toughness. The broadcast then flashed three “newspaper” headlines across the screen:

Cutler Leaves With Injury
Cutler Lacks Courage
Cutler’s No Leader

For good measure, Johnson said on air: “These are the actual headlines from the local papers in Chicago.”

The whole production rang false to us. The headlines didn’t look real. The language used in them was off. And since we know that most Chicago media had defended Cutler, we looked into it. We searched throughout Illinois newspapers for those headlines — Tribune, Sun-Times, Daily Herald, every other paper in the state. What did we find?

pretty pathetic on Fox Sports to do that. All they had to do was flash the tweets by the few idiot players like Maurice Jones Drew that were chiming in
