This is the first time I have seen more Associated Press articles on NPR than articles written by NPR writers. The articles before the game barely touched on the fundamentals of the game. Instead, they talked about psychology of why people love the Giants and recliner sales. As a sports fan, I do not want to read about those articles. I want to hear about the matchup between the Giants and the Patriots. There was only one article that touched on the intricacies of the game written by an NPR writer. All of the rest were written by the Associated Press.
After the game, the coverage was slightly better, but focused mainly on feature stories. There were a few blog posts, including one about the Manning brothers and the impact of corporate America on the Super Bowl. In fairness to NPR though, their website would not be my first choice to gather sports news.
I would try to find a more comprehensive recap on ESPN or The New York Times. NPR does not cater to the sports junkies, they cater to the artists and hipsters. That can be seen by the content of their homepage, less than 24 hours after the Super Bowl. The sports section is no where to be found. NPR's audience likes it that way too.
