No they didn't!


It's been taken down, but for a while last night ESPN was running the headline "Chink in the Armor" under a picture of Jeremy Lin that linked to a story about the Knicks loss Friday night. Jim Romenesko has a screenshot here.

Sadly, this is just the racist tip of an iceberg of fatuous commentary about Lin. Friday morning's New York Times ran a David Brooks column on Lin that was so odious that Charles Pierce was moved to write an abrasive takedown of Brooks' bafflingly obtuse take on sports.

Unbelievable. To ESPN's credit, that headline got yanked. You can still find Brooks' blatherings in their usual repository at the Times.

Got worse examples? Link to 'em in the comments.
