The mainstream media paints Cowboys owner Jerry Jones as "the bad guy" for threatening to bench players who protest the flag, even though the vast majority of Americans are on his side! Why is there still such a "disconnect" between what the media thinks the fans think...and reality?

ESPN's Michael Wilbon - not to mention activist Al Sharpton - have compared Jones to a slaveholder for saying he will discipline Cowboys players who disrespect the flag. 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright explains to morning show partner Erin McCarty why America's "big media" is so out of touch with everyday fans and, even worse, how so many are hypocritical in their criticism of anyone who doesn't side with the protesting players.
