    ESPN: 'Inappropriate' for Jemele Hill to call Donald Trump a white supremacist


    well they get drug into this anyway

  • ESPN greased the skids for this trash by becoming political. They need to readjust to strictly sports.  And, I feel the same way about entertainment folks.....they can be the worst.

  • There is obviously a double standard on how they treat certain hosts when they say certain things. Yesterday they suspended Linda Cohn for basically saying that ESPN has lost viewerships over politics which is true. But do what Hill did and slap her wrist.

  • ESPN appears they working toward being to Sports, what MTV is to music.

  • If Hill had been a white male and said something derogatory he would have been fired immediately.  But she can get away with it.  Double standard.

    They are practicing what they say they are fighting against.  More people are noticing it

  • Wasn't Curt Schilling suspended by ESPN when he was an employee for derogatory comments made about Obama when he was president? 

    What's the difference here?  If one is wrong, the other is as well.

  • I think he was suspended for comparing Muslims to Nazis

    I thought it was about transgender bathrooms

  • I haven't watched ESPN for anything other than games in so long I didn't have a clue who this girl was.

    Years back I was a religious Sportscenter watcher - those days ended as soon as ESPN decided they are on the air for issues other than sports.

    That might have been why he was fired

    It was Transgender bathrooms.

    But I wouldn't want to be the dude caught in the ladies room with his wife and kids. Dude is pretty large.

    They fired Mike Ditka for the same thing

  • ESPN is following in the footsteps of CNN.  Twenty years ago, there were relatively very few clues as to how the various CNN program hosts personally felt about political issues and personalities; - - not anymore.  I was watching Wolf Blitzer on CNN when he was forced to announce that Trump had just surpassed the Electoral College vote total which gave Trump the Presidency.  Wolf had a shocked, frozen, "deer-in-the-headlights" expression on his face, and could hardly get his words out.  Oh, how I relished that wooden, dismayed look on his face!!!

    ESPN is apparently also following (albeit belatedly) in the footsteps of celebrities and the Hollywood crowd who think that the American people should heed The Loony Left's political advice and adopt their liberal perspectives on the basis of their celebrity status - - virtually ignoring the fact that there is no correlation whatsoever between publicity and political insight.

    As others before me have noted here, I'll watch the games on ESPN that I'm interested in seeing; - - but if reporters start in on the political garbage commentaries, I'll simply hit the "mute" button - - or change the channel.

  • I wouldn't watch ESPN in the off-season even if they were to play Dukes of Hazzard  reruns with the unedited version of the General Lee with ESPN commentator Robert Lee dubbing over in the role of "The Balladeer."

    Then Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer are having lunch and making a deal with a white supremacist.  Idiot.

    So are you saying that Jemele Hill didn't state fact?

    if he's not, I am. She is speaking from her own personal experiences, but it doesn't make them a fact. Check out who Trump has hired both in personal business and while he's been in office. He's hired too many blacks and Jews to qualify.

    That's what I'm saying.  It's her opinion which I find ridiculous.  I'm not a fan of Trump, either.

  • Typical idiots today can't make a valid argument, so they name call.  The names du jour include, but are not limited to, racist, homophobe, bigot, transphobe, white supremacist, and even white male.

    How is it an opinion when there is plenty of evidence to prove her statement true?

    So what does that make you? You're name calling also.

    I'm not going to play your stupid question game.  You have proof that isn't opinionated and chock full of spin?  Post it.  If not, go away.

    Idiot is a valid description which can be found in the dictionary.  It is defined as a stupid person.  A stupid person cannot make a valid argument.  It's not name calling.  It's aptly describing someone.
