NewsBusters Edits Coach K's Quote
Topic: NewsBusters

A March 19 NewsBusters post by Kyle Drennen complained that a CBS report on President Obama's picks in the NCAA men's basketball tournament "failed to mention that the head coach of Duke University’s men’s basketball team, Mike Krzyzewski, recently criticized the President for being distracted by March Madness: "Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four, and as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets."

But Drennen fails to completely quote Krzyzewski. After he said the part that Drennen quoted, Krzyzewski added: "Why would I care about that? I love the guy, and I think he's gonna be great." Puts that earlier remark in a different context, doesn't it?
