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."

Green Bay fans will scream about the obvious face mask Adams got away with while causing the game-ending fumble, but like the announcers said, it was just karmic payback for the ceaseless abuse the Packers heaped on him over the course of both these games...
