Fair to all

April 11, 2009 

I know that a lot of non-UNC fans are upset about the overwhelming coverage of the men's basketball team's recent championship. I actually am not a UNC fan, but I feel that this coverage is justified for a local team winning a title. It is a great news story for this area and our state. Just because UNC isn't your favorite team does not mean that you should not give them credit for the 34-win season they just accomplished.

My only request is that in the event of one of the other local universities winning a title the same amount of coverage be given to them, so we can put this "UNC news bias" to rest.
