Jeff Capellini, a writer for WFAN.com in New York, suggests that the media has a lack of responsibility in reporting news about Tim Tebow. Capellini -- who has the Twitter handle @GreenLanterJet -- says the media rushed to report unsubstantiated rumors from unnamed sources solely as a "cheap way of creating a buzz."

I suggest that the media has an agenda to destroy Tim Tebow, an outspoken Christian. Many in the New York media have an anti-religious bigotry and mock Tebow at every chance. Now they have an unreliable story that negatively affects his relationship with his New York fans. They ran the story to discredit Tebow and possibly hurt his career in New York.

NEWYORK.CBSLOCAL.COM reports:
So now we're all in Tim Tebow's head. That's good to know going forward because I, for one, am dying to know how he thinks the upcoming season of "Survivor: Philippines" is going to shake out.

    The media tries to smear any prominent figure that displays conservative, Christian beliefs.

    Believe HALF of what you see and NONE of what you hear. Don't. believe the 'hype'. All done for 'the numbers', 'the ratings', 'the share of the market' and it all boils down to $$$-corporate greed, media moguls and the 1%-ers the one percenters. that run this country. A mind-numbing distraction from topics and issues of critical importance. I know you HATE like hell to be dragged from your comfort zone, but in case you didn't know it, or maybe you are trying to ignore it, the United States of America is at WAR, the US Government is spending money it does not have, Education, Health Insurance/ Healthcare, Economy, Homeless and Unemployment, Gas Price, Groceries, Crooked Banking System, Wall Street Cheats, Stolen Identity. There is too much 'Sparkle and Fluff' media being shoved down our throats. The media needs a 'High Colonic' so that thoroughly researched, accurate, honest and fair facts are included in print, radio, television and internet news. Stick to the facts, just the facts. Sodahead, shame on you for perpetuating unsubstantiated rumors, gossip, misinformation, intentional inaccuracies(lies), distorted facts(lies), HYPE. Please focus on what is REALLY IMPORTANT.

    A lot of athletes pray before they compete. During the Olympics, you could see that a lot of athletes do it. For some reason, the media really likes to hate on Tim Tebow for it. Is Tebow really an outspoken Christian? All I know of him is that he prays openly, which I don't consider outspoken. I couldn't see the story in the link.

    Dilfer was an adequate quarterback and did not suck, he just wasn't a flamboyant press hog.

    True, but you can't blame Tebow, it's the press who continues to keep the Tebow story alive....

    I don't blame Tebow .. I am pointing out the press have giving him more positive press than other people in his position yet you guys are claiming they are out to get him because he is a Christian . When facts are there are more Christians and nice guys in the NLF besides Tim.

    What a stupid premiss: The media is out to get Tebow because he's a Christian. Right, that's why the media was always after Mother Teresa and Pope JPII - right? Or President Obama, Vice President Biden, President Bush, President Clinton, President Bush (41), President Regan, President Carter, . . . . . . . . . . . and President Washington.

    Tebow would have been a media sweetheart with or without the "Praise Jesus" business.

    I know the media is only picking on him because of his beliefs and the things he does to show his beliefs ,no other player does what he does.
  • Joey ed 2012/09/15 16:51:27
    Joey
    HE is not being "picked" on . The fact that all you people know how Tebow is and not many other great players says a lot .

    The others are not nearly so well known to put scripture on their face, and actively acknowledge God in front of entire stadiums, support missions and pray without ceasing.

    But Tim is a phenom, largely because he is and former SEC, with really neat story and a deep love of God. The fact that his mom was told to abort him, and didn't makes him unique.

    Our high schools do that here, no one makes a fuss, and if they try it, we will still do it.

    I don't know about that. Gabby Douglas praised God after her gold medal Olympic performance and didn't receive backlash for it. Tim Tebow definitely gets a lot of undeserved flak for his beliefs though.

    I guess all the obsessive positive attention he gets over other, more skilled and capable, athletes would ruin anyone.

    During football season we are lucky to go a week without another story about him. Many involving painting people who don't like him as hating him because of his religion.

    The only way the media might be trying to ruin him is to lift him up so highly people become sick of him. Personally, I'm sick of this victim complex people seem to have when it comes to people like Tim Tebow. "The whole world is out to get and destroy him because he is Christian."

    Please. The media has made him out to be the best thing to hit the NFL in years. This has led to other, better players being completely overlooked. Stop complaining about the media trying to ruin him.
