BS – just because one footballer among thousands decides not to do it, it’s a big story in papers like the Mail.
In the Mail, small stories like this are often reported out of all proportion, yet really big stories like BLM don’t receive much coverage, and even less of it is positive. Why? Because it suits their agenda.
It’s like a story about one person’s benefit fraud. The Mail reports it as a big issue, in a way that suggests it’s typical of those who go cap in hand to the state, abuse the system, etc.
Just imagine if there was no BLM and one player had made a comment about racism in football.
Do you think the paper would have bothered reporting it? Of course not, it would be regarded as trivial or eccentric. Why? Because Mail readers don’t want to be reminded about racism in society and football, or might even agree with it, as they cheer on their own black players!
It’s how the Mail works.
