title ESPN’s bias in NFL article article CNNMoney is reporting that the sports network has been using a “biased” news article on its homepage and on the home page of its sports app, and that ESPN will have to change its policy to allow it to be published without bias.
CNNMoney reported earlier this week that ESPN’s home page had been displaying an article with the headline “Crazy weather, scary weather: CNN,” and an image of a tornado in the background.
ESPN told CNNMoney it was working on a policy to correct the problem and would be publishing an update soon.
The article was published by The Washington Post on Dec. 7, which has been cited in the past as being a source of bias, as well as by the New York Times on Dec 2 and the Boston Globe on Dec 4.
CNN said it would not be using the story, instead posting an image with the article’s headline, “CNN’s Biggest Stories of the Year.”
ESPN also used a CNNMoney story on Dec 6 that was headlined “ESPN’s coverage of the Ebola crisis is bad.”
The story stated that the network’s coverage was biased in favor of its corporate sponsors and a statement from a CNN spokesperson said, “We’re working on this and have a great team of editors and writers to fix it.”
The article continued to say that “CNN has a long history of publishing articles that are misleading or inaccurate.
We are working to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
CNNMoney said it contacted ESPN on Monday, and the network did not respond by press time.
