Manchester United Evening News Is A Sham

Manchester United Evening News Is A Sham

Vital Manchester City received the following article from newbie, Winkwink.

I think it's about time ALL City fans boycotted this publication. It's the only way we will get them to change the craven editorial bias against City and the distortion of the forums by the so called moderators.

Why have I arrived at that conclusion?

As any Blue will surely know, trying to post on the forms is becoming increasingly difficult. Rags seem to be able to produce any number of bland, inane posts without any apparent attempt by the moderators to filter there input. Ok I can just about live with that but when I, as many others have found, attempt to respond to the ignorance and blatant lies more often than not the comments are not posted.

What can the agenda be of the moderators other than maintaining the bias? The MUEN should be representative of the whole community not simply a narrow some glory hunting section of not particularly bright United fans. Its only very rarely do you see an intelligent and insightful comments posted by a United fan. Most of the other contributions which are numerous are puerile, intended solely to wind up Blues and without any class.

Rags will claim that I can't take the banter but without the ability to post responses it's not banter it's a monologue. Time to act now.

They need hits to earn advertising revenue. Spread the word and treat them as they have treated us for years. Ignore them, marginalise them and make them pay through their pockets. It would be great to see MCFC set up some kind of forum.

I appreciate that this might cut across Vital Manchester City but we need something to counter the MUEN. The rot has to stop.

The quality of the MCFC sites coverage already far outstrips the increasingly poor and unimaginative and hardly news delivering MUEN. Garry Cook has achieved a great deal at the club. A further helping hand in ridding rid of the need to access the MUEN would be a wonderful gift to the fans.

The disgruntled Blue also sent VMC the following poll question...

Is the Sports Editor of the MUEN responsible for the poor coverage of City?

To vote, use the poll question to the right hand side of this article.

you need to relax mate. if you're gonna get your keks curled up every time you find a bit of traffordite favouritism in the media you'll have to take them off with an F1 wheel gun. If we boycott the muen who's gonna buy it ? they don't distribute it to surrey or devon. --- A worse example is that comic the sun, anyone noticed their new add with a cartoon version (appropriate for shrek) of the 'wonder goal' ? Not only has the cartoon been done to show it hitting his boot but they got the cockney con man to voice over describing it as a rocket from his right boot !!! wtf.

Brennan writes some decent and impartial articles but the rest is a complete rag lovefest and is disgraceful. The media does hate us but you'd expect the local publication to get behind us more - especially since technically we ARE the only team in Manchester and have hatched a plan to regenerated a rundown part of Manchester and create thousands of jobs, while the Glazers have done nothing for United's local Stretford.

As someone who used to be a regular commentator on the MuEN, I couldn't agree more with this article. Witty comments from blues on the dark side are expressly verboten, yet the rags can come on and do the internet equivalent of dragging their knuckles all over the Blue side - the bias is there for all to see. When they appointed lifelong-red-from-a-red-family-loves-everything-red Stuart Brennan as the chief City correspondent I was appalled and seldom even venture over there to read the nonsense, let alone post comments. Vital is a much better place to be, although whilst agreeing with the idea of boycotting the MuEN, can I make another suggestion? Let's petition that sorry excuse for a rag (sic) to bring Paul Hince out of retirement - the paper hasn't been the same since he left!

Nice to know it's not just London that this happens. Stopped reading the Evening Arse, even though it's free.

I've had countless posts (non offensive) not published on this rag. Haven't bought the thing for about 10 years.

After reading a truly disgraceful comment from a red on the story about mike doyles funeral, i must admit ive gone right off the site,(which I used to use a lot). What makes it worse is that when ever the editor bloke does his webchats he maintains that they are totally fair when reporting on city,like were all to dumb to see it! in response to the mike doyle story can i just add that every red that came on to that story after wards rightly slagged their own man off------of course that doesnt make me like them any better than i did lol.

The MUEN has always had a red bias ever since they gobbled up the News Chronicle (the other Manchester evening paper) in the late 50's.

Stuart Brennan is an excellent writer and calls it as he sees it whereas Mathieson and Whalley have to brown-nose Ferguson in case they get the BBC treatment. Paul Hince's periodic columns are forst class too especially his from last night based upon how times will change. The bottom line is that when that happens so the rag will have to change. Bear in mind the next English team to win the Champions League will be .....City
