No, Grant's problem is that he got into a bussiness his dad works in and will always be perceived as having been given his chance because of his last name (rightly or wrongly). He likely realizes this and says things bad about the niners not based on facts to merely get people's attention since that's what he equates good reporting and anylsis to having seen his father do the same (albeit to a lesser extent).
Look, Grant is a kid with little world experience so it is no surprise that he comes across as a jerk since most kids his age don't know any better. His problem is that someone gave him a measure of power in his reporting position without considering if Grant actually had the talent or experience. Grant's writing is ok but likely didn't warrant such a job. The content of his articles are sub-par which definitely do not prove he secured his position by hardwork and true merit.
