LYNN ZINSER's an idiot

The NYT is turning into a tabloid. 

Lynn Zinser, a "reporter" for the NYT lumps KG with Moss.  In article titled  "Moss and Garnett Vie for the Wrong Kind of Attention"  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/05/sports/football/05leading.html?src=mv

She says "Over in the N.B.A. tent, Garnett did his best to draw all your eyes to his act. As Adrian Wojnarowski writes on Yahoo.com, Garnett has always been the league’s biggest bully, but got called on it when Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva announced via Twitter that Garnett had referred to him as a “cancer patient,” in reference to the alopecia that costs Villanueva his hair. Garnett issued a statement claiming his comment was actually that Villanueva was a “cancer to his team and the league,” although as Mitch Lawrence writes on Foxsports.com, almost no one believes him. Even if that’s what he said, writes J.A. Adande on ESPN.com, it’s time to ditch the cancer metaphor in sports once and for all and David Whitley writes on Fanhouse.com, in another era someone would have just decked Garnett. Conversely, Dan Shaughnessy writes in the Boston Globe that in sporting circles, Villanueva is actually the bad guy because he broke the code of keeping trash talk on the court."

First of all, Garnett did not trash talk to get people's attention, CV tweeted it.  and Doc's not a liar...too much character for that...he would have said KG mispoke and shouldnt have said it, if it was true.

This kind of unaccountability in "reporting" ticks me off...you can't respond to her post...so I'm doing it here!
