Absolutely sickening. If we needed any more proof the media a) doesn't bother to check facts and b) is insanely biased, here it is.
I'm surprised that f'tard GRUTMAN didn't write this article.
Mr. Williams will always have my support, period. My FIERCE support, mind you, support that wouldn't be so fierce if Vince and his ego wasn't so insistent on now killing the legend of Stone Cold and attempting to replace it with some upstart neanderthal monkey named the Rock.
"Williams declined to comment on her husband's arrest. Austin, who was released after posting a $5,000 bond, had little to say about the incident.
'Nothing happened,' he told the San Antonio Express-News, upon leaving the booking station with his attorney."
I'd kind of like to know what he means with the "nothing happened" statement...is he denying the charges, or is he just saying that nothing new came to light at the police station? The story and the context of the quote makes it seem as if he's just flat out denying the 'incident', which I hope is not the case...unless Debra IS lying (I can dream can't I).
Comic Book Guy: "Last night's 'Itchy & Scratchy' was, without a doubt, the worst episode ever. Rest assured that I was on the Internet within minutes, registering my disgust throughout the world."
With Austin gone from the WWE lineup and the Rock moving on to movies, officials say they're searching for up-and-comers--such as 6-foot-4, 305-pound Brock Lesnar--to headline matches on Monday Night Raw.

As a member of the "absolutely sickening" media you speak of, I politely ask you to pull your head out of the ground for a moment.
Certian members of the media like Rush Limbaugh and Jim Rome hold their opinions and that forms the basis of their shows. However shows like newscasts are not to have a "sickening biased" opinion, and should definitly check facts. There is the three rules regarding the news;
Accuracy. Brevity. Clarity.
If a station is not following these three rules, then they aren't doing their newscasts proeprly and you need to go find a source that does do them right. If not, you have no one to blame but yourself for seeing second rate media coverage.

The Rock has been more over than Austin for the past couple of years, FYI.

Pro wrestling's "Stone Cold" Steve Austin surrendered to authorities in San Antonio after a judge issued an arrest warrant for him on a domestic violence complaint. Steve Williams-his real name- was charged with assault with bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor, police said. He was free after posting $5,000 bond. "Nothing happened," the 37-year-old Williams said as he left the Bexar County Courthouse, the San Antonio Express-News reported on its website. He declined further comment. Debra Williams, the wrestler's wife, called police around 4 a.m. June 15. The officer who arrived at their San Antonio home found the woman at the front of the house crying and said he saw "a large noticeable welt" just below her right eye. The wrestler had left the house before police arrived but later spoke to the responding officer by phone. The Williamses married last year in Las Vegas. It is the wrestler's third marriage. In June, officials at World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. said Williams, who had been their featured television attraction, had failed to show up as scheduled at two events and "is no longer an active member of WWE's talent roster."
At least these people get the facts straight.
After lots of thinking I finally came to a theory: Any non-wrestler who gets attacked by the Island Boyz will immediately recieve praise from the Wienerville community. There's no other way to explain it.
You know, the only reason we know the media has trashed all the facts they've reported is because we already follow the WWE pretty closly both on TV and the internet (not that you'd need to be a super-fan to spot the inaccuracies, but you get the idea) so we already knew most of this stuff before they reported it. It kinda makes me wonder what other facts the media screws up concerning stroies/topics I dont know anything about.
As some of you are aware (sorry 'bout that), one of our writers at Lethal, Jun Bakon, does a semi-regular feature called "Fun with Forums." It's harmless, more than anything an homage to SA's Weekend Web specific to wrestling.
