What If the Media Covered Sports Like They Cover Trump?

By Steve Lipman| February 3, 2018

Idon’t know one poll that suggested New England was going to have this kind of night,” said CNN’s Jake Tapper. “Nobody predicted this,” said Chris Matthews on MSNBC.

Nobody did. Because the New England Patriots didn’t have a chance. The Jacksonville Jaguars had the experience and the elite personnel to carry them to victory. Most importantly, the Jaguars deserved to win. And they were certain they would. After all, they’d spent years preparing for this moment. The Jaguars were going to make history as the first Florida team, north of Miami and Tampa, to make it to the Super Bowl. The glass ceiling would finally be shattered.

Oddsmakers had the Jaguars as big favorites. FiveThirtyEight gave them a 74.2 percent chance of winning. Early in the game, with the Jaguars holding on to the lead, that chance of winning climbed to 93 percent.

And then, the unthinkable. The Patriots, led by its quarterback, Tom Brady, began to come back. Within minutes, the Patriots regained the lead. And with the game clock down to 0:00, the scoreboard showed 24-20, favoring the Patriots.  :snip:  https://amgreatness.com/2018/02/03/media-covered-sports-like-cover-trump/
