NBC and the Chicago Tribune are being blasted for their sexist coverage of female Olympians

The Chicago Tribune is receiving plenty of flack for a tweet it posted about Corey Cogdell, a trapshooter who won her second bronze medal in women’s trap on Sunday. The article itself now leads with Cogdell’s name, but on Twitter it led with her husband, Chicago Bears lineman Mitch Unrein, while Cogdell was only referred to as “wife of a Bears lineman.”

Some argued that the tweet contextualized Cogdell for the Tribune’s audience, but the tweet appeared online mere hours after Hosszu’s husband was applauded for her accomplishments, and it hit a particularly hard nerve with fans keeping up with coverage over the weekend.

But the Tribune’s reporting was only the beginning of the Olympic coverage that’s being criticized for sexism.



3 months after winning the bid, I finally got (and finished to pay…) my batch from Hannibal TV show! Some items (clocks designed by Will Graham during his sessions with Hannibal Lecter, and his medical record) who served on the filming of a TV show that is so important in my life, I couldn’t dream better :)
