This is Football, it's entertainment. I don't think you give the fans enough credit - if there wasn't a daily news or WFAN there would be sites like this and other forums where the frustration of the fans would be heard.
As an example - Rex benched Sanchez at a home game - he knew the booing would be relentless and merciless if Sanchez came "Home" and started another game. That wasn't the media, it was the fans.
I see your point but believe they play a important role. I dont think the owner would feel the pressure to change as much if the media did not ask questions. Even the ones that you or I might think is not important.
