ESPN Issues Mild Reprimand to Liberal Host Who Called Trump a 'White Supremacist'
ESPN has issued a mild rebuke--if it can even be called that--of SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill after she called President Trump and essentially everyone who voted for him white supremacists in a series of tweets. Here is what the network had to say:
USA Today has a summary of Hill's tired liberal Twitter tantrum, but here is what kicked it off:
This isn't going to help the perception that ESPN tilts way left and is deliberately offensive to conservatives.
ESPN stalwart Linda Cohn lamented the network's non-sports wander into politics in an interview last spring, noting that the "core group" of viewers who made ESPN so successful were being ignored.
The network also published a poem by a convicted cop killer on one of its vertical websites, ESPNW. That was done in the name of celebrating feminism, and the ensuing outrage from sane people prompted the network to remove the poem.
A year before the cop-murdering feminist was being feted by ESPN, they fired Curt Schilling for pretty much doing what Jemele Hill just did.
