Why I can't stand the LA Times

I often say that it's no wonder Dodger fans are so ignorant, given how lousy the LA Times coverage is. Bill Shaikin has a patronizing column today about what a groovy guy Matt Kemp is because he's not made a big deal over losing the MVP to Ryan Braun last season. Braun says he appreciates Kemp. 

That's all well and good. What rubs me the wrong way is that Shaikin states flatly that Braun tested positively for performance enhancing substances -- no qualifiers that this is all an allegation that's never been proven and an allegation that Braun has always disputed. No, Shaikin decides that he can go ahead and criminalize Braun, despite the violations of testing procedure. He apparently believes that the Commissioner's office must always be right, even though the arbitrator threw the case out.

Whatever happened to the word "allegedly"?
