Fox Admits Headlines Used In Segment On Bears' Jay Cutler Were "Misleading"
Published September 20, 2011
EASY TARGET? WSCR-AM's Matt Spiegel noted Fox’ Joe Buck and Troy Aikman during Sunday's Saints-Bears game discussed Cutler displaying his frustrations on the sideline by standing off away from the bench and throwing a towel. Spiegel said, “I don’t even know that I blame Fox as much. This storyline has been created, it’s there, so they’re just doing the lazy TV. ... Joe Buck brings it up in kind of the ‘I’m not saying, I’m just saying’ way, where he doesn’t really lay into Jay, but he brings it up like, ‘Well, people have talked about it, what do you think?’ And Aikman had to defend him. Aikman at one point said, ‘That’s where I would be standing too, is down there, so I can actually watch the game, Joe.’ But Joe just kind of lays it up there, like maybe the fans will bite on that” ("Chicago Tribune Live," Comcast SportsNet Chicago, 9/19).
