Media Bias Clouds True Spirit of Women’s Basketball

The liberal media is pushing a new narrative about the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). They are now suggesting that fans are only interested in the league because of former University of Iowa star Caitlin Clark, who is now playing for the Indiana Fever.

Jemele Hill, a writer for The Atlantic, recently stated that the popularity of Caitlin Clark is due to race and sexuality, insinuating that this is the main reason for her success. She went on to claim that this problematic situation diminishes the worth and marketability of other WNBA players.

The Associated Press’ own WNBA writers seemed to be unaware of the league, as they made a blatant error in a recent article regarding two players who are receiving attention mostly because of their association with Caitlin Clark.

The coverage of a recent game between the Chicago Sky and the New York Liberty has also been marred by controversy. The game saw Chicago’s Chennedy Carter involved in a flagrant foul against Caitlin Clark, leading to discussions about race and the supposedly negligent support for the WNBA outside of Clark’s spotlight.

There were additional mistakes in the coverage of the game, with an AP writer incorrectly labeling Chennedy Carter as a rookie when she has been a professional player since 2020. These mistakes further underscore the lack of attention given to the WNBA beyond the current focus on Clark.

The AP writer’s mix-up of Carter and rookie Angel Reese, both of whom have been associated with controversial incidents, suggests a lack of engagement with the WNBA. This exemplifies the lack of recognition for other players in the league and underscores the need for a fair and balanced portrayal of all WNBA athletes.

In light of these developments, it is clear that the media’s focus on Caitlin Clark is distorting the coverage of the WNBA and diminishing the recognition of other players who are equally important to the league.
