    Here's a well-done column by SF Chron's Gwen Knapp, saying the BALCO investigation is not and has never been all about Barry Bonds -- only the media's coverage has.

    I'm not sure I agree that the media believes Barry is the "only" focus, but off the list of names in that story, I automatically knew Romo and Robbins as well. The others? Eh, never heard of them. And we tend to focus only those names we recognize.

    We tend to focus on the people that readers are most interested in.
