the US media needs to QUIT already

ok, so every time I load up Yahoo! to check my email, there's another asinine story on the front page...mostly it's always anti-china...but this one is about the Spanish basketball team. http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/beijing/blog/fourth_place_medal/post/Spanish-basketball-team-poses-for-offensive-pict?urn=oly,100152

Ok, so, here's a team SUPPORTED by China. Doesn't it seem obvious that they are indicating "We're off to china! Woohoo!" with that picture? I know, as Americans, we're so fucking over PC all the time, and surely by now people reading this journal know that I am not racist la de da. But, I'm just so tired of reading "the photo caused and uproar"....referring to this picture, the lip-syncing kids, the fireworks at the opening ceremonies. I mean Britney spears lip-synced and so did ashley simpson. Are they evil communists now too? No, we forgot about it. And I find it's hard to believe that nothing in the US media has ever been doctored. So there you go. Anyways, Yahoo! is feeling like FOX news suddenly and it's annoying having to go there all the time to check emails.
