'Dancing' sends a top performer home
Tue Oct 26, 2010
DWTS has little to do with who can actually dance and everything to do with ratings and who has a fan base. Every year, one of the best dancers gets bounced early and several underserving celebrities stay until the later rounds -- Audrina this year, Natalie Coughlin last year...
'Dancing' doesn't need added distractions
Tue Oct 12, 2010

Two more couples get the boot on ‘Dancing’

Two US gold medalists to be on Wheaties box
Fri Aug 29, 2008
Doe the AP have a fact checker? More than two other Americans have won the Olympic decathlon -- Dan O'Brien, Bill Toomey, Rafer Johnson, and Milt Campbell off the top of my head.
In sports, the media have crossed the line
Tue Aug 5, 2008
Vebtre is right that the sense of perspective about what is truly "newsworthy" has disappeared. However, athletes are celebreties like anyone else in the entertainment business, and they shouldn't expect any different treatment just because they play a sport.
