At ESPN, slamming President Trump as a racist is not met with suspension.
The left-leaning Disney-owned “worldwide leader in sports” has made it abundantly clear with their actions and programming over the years that progressive politics are a big part of their agenda.
We’re talking about this today thanks to host Jemele Hill, who recently labeled Trump a ‘white supremacist.’
Current Fox Sports 1 host and former ESPN contributor Jason Whitlock breaks it down…
From Fox News Insider:
“I think that ESPN has chosen a lane politically,” Whitlock said. “[ESPN President] John Skipper has certainly made diversity in his view a business innovation for ESPN and has moved the company to the left. So I think no action here against Jemele Hill is a clear sign that they’re in agreement.”
“Attacking the president is a way to get retweeted and liked and to build your following,” Whitlock said. “[Hill] just fell into that trap that a lot of us in the media fall into. We’re way too addicted to Twitter, and we’re way too worried about how many people follow us on Twitter and how many people like us.”
Whitlock, a black man, has also been vocal about his displeasure with Colin Kaepernick’s social justice activism.
ESPN needs to get it together.
Why would any company think alienating half of one’s audience is a good idea?
