I just read this article from USA Hockey about their quarter-final game against Sweden today at the 2005 IIHF World Junior Championship. It's a hilarious example of an obvious and transparent bias.
The headline of the article is "Buoyant Team USA takes momentum into crossover" and it's all about what a positive roll Team USA is on heading into today's game. Team USA is the defending champions at the 2005 World Junior Championship, but they've lost two in a row. They suffered one of the biggest upsets in the history of the tournament losing to Belarus before losing 3-1 to the Czech Republic last Thursday.
That's some momentum!
