Bad Reporting Bleeds Into Sports for the AP

No politics today, but I can't pass up a chance to bash the AP. A Story (granted a complimentary story) on the Carolina Panthers, written by one Barry Wilner, states that:

Two years ago, they went to St. Louis and Philadelphia in the playoffs, won both times and made their first NFL championship game appearance.

In fact, the Panthers played in the 1997 NFC championship game against Green Bay. Just one more example of a writer not doing his homework on a topic of which he is supposed to be an expert. I mean, don't they realize that some anal retentive blogger who happens to be a Carolina fan would pick up on that?
