Photograph captions on Yahoo

->> Yahoo IMO is just tabloid fodder anymore, but I can't believe (or should I?) that Yahoo added its own biased view to captions on photographs that ran with this story. Plus, they gave the photographer and the agency credit, making it look like they wrote those idiotic captions.

I would be up in arms if anyone altered my captions to fit their biased views.

->> "Ball Don't Lie" is obviously commentary, though I do admit they should label the section "Opinion" clearly.

Looks like they make snarky comments on most of the photos in the section:

->> It's a blog, probably part of or related to Yahoo Contributors Network, which is basically amateur content. It's about what you expect on the web these days, especially with sports.
