Three of the newspaper graphics FOX showed during a piece on the upcoming (Sept. 11) Falcons vs Bears game covering the Jay Cutler injury "were fabrications.”

Announcer Daryl Johnston "told viewers that ‘these are the actual headlines from the local papers in Chicago." but the Chicago Tribune called B.S. on the issue.

From the article: “The wrong word was used. Our attempt was to capture the overall sentiment nationwide following that game.”

Right, in no way is would the overall sentiment nationwide be swayed by media.

I'm all for sensationalism in sports, but this is a bit rediculous.

I'm a newspaper guy. This really rankles me.

Does Chicago even have the kind of tabloid that uses that type of headline?

On the Fox Pregame, they just read an apology for displaying "the wrong graphic."

Well anyone picking the Carolina Panthers to win the South last year would've been accused of smoking crack as well and look at what they did. After all, EIGHT people did pick them last to finish last in the South last season.
