According to the Associated Press:
David Freese thinks Pirates are not trying hard enough to win
That's the headline that most news sources placed atop the AP story about Pittsburgh Pirate third baseman David Freese. This morning's Wheeling Intelligencer headline isn't as specific:
Bucs' Freese Reports Unhappy
Those media sources that carried the original AP story explained the reasons behind Freese's comments:
Deciding to rebuild, the Pirates traded center fielder Andrew McCutchen, the 2013 NL MVP, to San Francisco and dealt right-hander Gerrit Cole, a 19-game winner in 2015, to Houston.
Apparently the Intelligencer didn't like "deciding to rebuild" and so it was dropped -- I could find no other source that did so.
In the original, Freese compared the Pirates to Pittsburgh's other sports franchises and then blamed management:
At the same time, the Penguins have won back-to-back Stanley Cup championships and the Steelers have reached the NFL playoffs for four straight years.
Freese said he does not understand why Pirates owner Bob Nutting does not try to keep pace.
The Intelligencer version removed the reference to Bob Nutting who also owns Wheeling's newspapers:
Freese said he does not understand why the Pirates aren't keeping pace.
I realize that the Intelligencer altering an AP sports story is minor stuff when compared to the major changes they've made to important national AP news stories. However, the example illustrates their need to shape the reader's understanding of a subject regardless of its significance.
