Media snubs White Sox in Cubs' World Series coverage

FOX 32 NEWS - Eleven years ago Wednesday, the White Sox won the World Series. It’s a proud moment for Chicago that some journalists seem to have forgotten about.

An estimated two million people turned out for the parade and giant rally that celebrated the White Sox winning the World Series 11 years ago. That crowd apparently did not include the social media genius at CBS who tweeted two days ago, "Wrigley Field is prepping this morning for an event Chicago hasn't seen in 71 years: the World Series."

The usually reliable Sports Illustrated Vault posted a picture of then-White Sox announcer Haray Caray at old Comiskey Park, "Searched for the best Cubs photo I could find. This is the clear winner." He didn't wonder why three fans were wearing White Sox gear?

After a storm of protest, SI Vault tweeted a snarky correction: "Apologies for the Harry Caray pic, as its obviously from his White Sox days. Bad mistake. This vendor & I apologize profusely."

Angry fans let ESPN have it for leaving the 2005 White Sox out of a Chicago-Cleveland comparison of championships.

World Series MVP Jermaine Dye responded, "Hey @espn @SportsCenter I do believe we won in 2005 with @whitesox. #NoRespect #CmonMan."

The bright side to all this? It's enough to unite Cubs fans and Sox fans in one big, Chicago-wide belly laugh.
