Here is a great example of implicit (and complicit) MEDIA BIAS, of the type David Emmett is guilty of towards the so called "feud", a gross caricature, between Rossi and Marquez (which has actually been a one sided attack by Rossi, from the beginning). Notice the opposing implication of these headlines.

MARQUEZ: on one side you have the suggestion that Marquez is like some dubious politician, "side-stepping" "controversy", ooh sounds bad, that is he is evasive, being deceptive, like some snake. Isn't this the visual we're supposed to conjure? A guy that has something to hide. Untrustworthy, perhaps...guilty!

ROSSI: on the other side we have the lofty affirmation of "confirmation", a suggestion that Rossi is honest, righteous, a straight shooter. He speaks truth. He's like a good guy, sticks to his conviction. Trustworthy, he was, as the headline suggests, right all along.

It was a kick in the same sense that MM rode Rossi off the track at Argentina.

In the same way hotels used to always have a Gideon's bible in the drawer in the night table - all forums come with a resident Village Idiot.

He's most reputed for character assassination and shoddy "journalism" tactics in particular what was on display at COTA during his questioning of Marc Marquez.

Because he enjoys unfettered access to the paddock, he will crucify any rider not named Rossi, so his current favorite target is MM. In his write up of Argentina he sold the false bill of goods that MM ran Rossi off the track which just leads to the fact that he has no idea who had the corner even though MM had it. No different from his ludicrous take on Sepang 2015. He thinks MM deserved a 1 race ban for a racing incident, but did no such thing when VR kicked MM off a motorcycle in the middle of a grand prix, going as far to say MM was partly responsible for what transpired. He says nothing about Uccio's fat mouth running or Lin Jarvis and Valentino Rossi trying to hide.

And he calls himself a journalist?

Maybe of the muckraking variety.

Let's not forget he runs his message board like the gestapo would.

He won't come to this forum because he is a pussy who doesn't want to get grilled by people who don't fall for his bullshit.

Share your favorite Hack Emmett write-ups, stories, or disgust. The choice is yours!
I asked him to refresh my memory on if he called for a race ban for Rossi
His response was , oh, there are different events and I responded , yes they are different events, one was a racing incident and the other was on purpose . That part didnít pass muster I guess as it never got posted

After so many iterations of the same personality with multiple names they all start to blur. I still hold to the theory that they may in fact be cloned in a vat.

If he called for a race ban on Rossi he'd have to find a new job.

Much easier to be a chickenshit journo slob than to be an honest person.
