CBS Boston Wonders If Arrest In Murder Case Is "Blemish" For Patriots

Before Aaron Hernandez's arraignment, CBS Boston was already wringing its hands over how much Hernandez's arrest in the Odin Lloyd murder case would diminish the Patriots' tireless community service efforts. It's almost like a party trick: Can you carry water for the local boys while simultaneously trivializing the killing of a human being by classifying it as bad PR?

And that's not even getting into the second guy here, the one who talks about Hernandez's "troubled background" and forecasts that at some point Hernandez will "feel like he let down his father, in Robert Kraft," as if the Patriots were the real victims here.

Good job, TV.
