Can someone tell me if The Philadelphia Inquirer was partial to the Athletics? I recently read some articles from the 1947 season and it seemed like the Inquirer gave better coverage to the Athletics than the Phillies. What I mean is that the Inquirer put the story about the A's game at the top of the sports page while the Phillies stories were lower on the page with smaller headlines than on the A's stories. The A's were in fourth place at the time and the Phillies were in last place in the NL. Did the Inquirer always give better coverage to the A's or was it because the A's weren't in last place in 1947? Was the Athletics' fan base more or less the readership of the Inquirer?
