To the media in general and especially to the Chicago media. Me thinks you doth protest too much for you apply a serious double standard to your profession. You are as Bill Parcell’s said "subversives". You consciously or subconsciously take out your frustrations on selected figures. A case in point is whoever quarterbacks for the Chicago Bears.
Now, it is true that for most of your lives the characters the Bears have trotted out (and endlessly tried to sell fans) to play the game’s most important position have been bad jokes. But even when there is a guy trying to his best and having success given his limited talents you crucify him unmercifully. See Rex Grossman for multiple examples.
The present day example is, of course, Jay Cutler. You do not like the fact that he does not comport himself as you think I QB should. Ok I get that. Sometimes I agree the guy should use his thumb for any pointing he wants to do. But, he does from his point of view tell the truth. Our Chicago media does not.
A recent incident in which by the media’s evaluation Jay Cutler belittled a reporter who asked a question has been reported repeatedly including via a transcript. However, no one in the media identified which reporter it was. If the action occurred on the playing field the reporters would have identified the players involved. A public press conference is your playing field. Why not identify the reporter? Sure it could cause embarrassment as the QB implied that the reporter did not understand the game but how is a fan who reads the reporters work supposed to gage his viewpoint unless they know who it was. Are not the readers entitled to have the same information as the writers to for their own opinions?
