I don't watch ESPN or the NFL anymore.

ESPN only cared about the big markets anyway.  So unless you were Boston, NY or LA they didn't care.

As Ben Shapiro said, ESPN is just MSNBC plus some football.

It's almost impossible to listen to or read an article by a black media member like Hill without race eventually being interjected into the conversation.  Virtually every black media member (and most white media members) with few exceptions is a SJW.     To these people despite making millions all pro black athletes are victims of racist whites.
And yes,  I've heard Hill squawk on her show and other sports shows.  She lived down to my expectations.

A few years ago, she reportedly was suspended for saying, "Rooting for the Boston Celtics is like saying that Hitler was a victim." Clearly, she is an historian beyond measure.

Can't figure out if she's an attention whore or a black supremacist.

Yeah, well, this kind of thing happens all the time. It's just another case of a Black person landing a beautiful position with everything America has to offer, and then they throw it all away in the name of grievance, vindictiveness, and Black supremacy. This is fairly common these days. Some people just simply cannot stand the fact that they are Black. They can't get over it. They can't let it go. It drives them crazy.


My opinion is that ESPN is done. It's over. They morphed from being a sports channel into a 'politics' channel with some sports. And nobody cares about their opinions on Trump or Global Warming or the Police. And they can't seem to stop. They can't help it.


The most likely result of all this is that a new channel will start up and get back to reporting on 'sports', and ESPN will be long gone.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

The WH remarks are being misstated as "demanding" she be fired.  Sanders said what Hill did was a "fireable offense." I take that as saying any employer would be justified in firing her - no more, and certainly not demanding anything.

Kaepernick Tweets Support for ESPN's Jemele Hill After She Called Trump a 'White Supremacist'
Fox News, Sep 13, 2017, Fox and Friends

ESPN has come under fire after "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill tweeted that President Donald Trump is a "white supremacist" who is "unfit and unqualified" to be commander-in-chief.

ESPN's public relations department later tweeted a statement, saying that Hill's comments do not represent the position of the network. ESPN took no action against Hill for her comments, however, which has led to criticism.

Controversial free agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweeted a message of support to Hill, saying "we are with you."

Kaepernick made national headlines last NFL season by kneeling during the pre-game national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality in America.

On "Fox & Friends First" today, Lawrence Jones said ESPN's lack of action against Hill makes it clear that they are pushing some kind of liberal agenda.

He pointed out that former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling was fired from his analyst position by the network when he retweeted a meme that was deemed offensive to the LGBTQ community.

He's white... to radicals, that's enough. Yes, it could get more in depth after that per discussion,  to not just be uttering a joke, a throwaway remark.

As others have said, look at Rush and he basically got the boot from ESPN for remarks not nearly as volatile but he did say this on air.  I think she should be fired but tweeting nonetheless, might be a different situation.

White House: ESPN anchor that called Trump racist should be fired

To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

While loathing the comments from the BLM SJW advocate on ESPN, the White House has NO BUSINESS WHATSOEVER to use the bully pulpit to direct private companies whom they should fire and punish.

That's an open door to a kind of tyranny a nation does not recover from.

Sanders did not say Hill should be fired. She said the offensive tweets were a fireabke offence. There's a difference.

Let ESPN decide who they should fire and not fire. The White House should butt out.

She didn't remotely imply the WH was telling ESPN what to do.
