They just can't stop lying

Gwen Knapp of the SF Chronicle decides to take the same shameful route as John Shea in today's pedestrian recap of the Bonds' signing. There's no actual reporting -- just yet another reference to the discredited NY Daily News story ("Evil Bonds blames Sweeney for positive greenies test") but a complete absence of the one undisputed fact that's come out since the story broke -- that Mark Sweeney has said explicitly that it's not true.

It's no wonder the Giants players give the Chronicle reporters nothing but canned quotes. If the Chronicle were a real newspaper, she'd be fired. Unfortunately, the Chron is not a real paper any more.

I'm with you on your criticism of the Chron. Their politics seems to come first, last, and always. They rush to embrace an anti Bonds story and, after it is discredited, they just ignore the newly revealed true facts - and continue, by dicing and slicing, to put out their view of the world.
