In his review of the Daytona 500, which encompassed half of the front page in the Sports section, Mike Imrem devoted the vast majority of his tabloid-style article to Danica Patrick and commented only on the sensationalism of a female driver. No references to her past accomplishments as a driver, only to her current tabloid relationship. Imrem proudly stated he doesn't "know a carburetor from a windshield wiper," or "a dipstick from a grilled cheese sandwich." On the front page of Sports.
The Associated Press coverage of the race was on Page 5. Don't motor sports enthusiasts deserve better treatment than this: prominent, front-page coverage of "sizzle" and incidental, Page 5 coverage of "steak"?
