I would never blame the newspapers, certainly not in 1984. The newspapers were getting the results from the promoters. The quality and length of the articles were based on the relationship that the promoter had with the local newspaper. I doubt that actual journalists were sent to the matches to write a report on any cards after the 1950s. From what I have seen, it seems that most newspapers stopped sending a reporter by the end of the 1930s.
