Subject: Bury the lead?

The Beaver County Times covered a girls basketball game between Beaver and Ambridge with a controversial finish (a dis-allowed basket at the buzzer). They made their headline around the controversy and splashed it on their social media. Yet the story didn't refer to the controversy until near the end, and in very mild fashion. And the accompanying video didn't show the finish at all. Why make a splash headline about a controversial call and then not have the story be about that call or have the video show it? More amateur hour stuff.

The BCT has amateur executives, amateur editors, amateur reporters but they do have the distinction of being the # 1 purveyor of softball journalism in Beaver County.
