Talk about an understatement

Check out the lead from this AP story:

"Former Sox farmhand Michael Jordan admits being 'stupid' in his gambling, but never jeopardized his livelihood or his family, he told CBS' '60 Minutes' in an interview to be broadcast Sunday."

How on earth does a journalist feel that the most important identifying characteristic about Michael Jordan was his time with the Chicago White Sox minor league team?

I guess I've been away from the newsroom too long.
