White House Ratchets Up Its Attacks On ‘Hypocritical’ ESPN

5

The White House on Friday hammered ESPN, calling the network “hypocritical” for what it says is a double-standard in the way it treats conservative and liberal employees.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted the network suspended longtime anchor Linda Cohn, who said earlier this year in a radio interview that left-wing bias at the network had contributed to a loss of subscribers.

Yet when ESPN’s Jemele Hill called President Trump a white supremacist this week the network chose to distance itself from the anchor but did not fire or suspend her.

“The point is that ESPN has been hypocritical, they should hold anchors to a fair and consistent standard,” Sanders said. “ESPN suspended a long-time anchor, Linda Cohn, not too long ago for expressing a political viewpoint. The network’s public editor has said there is a perception that ESPN has become political and that it harms the network. This is clearly a political statement, they should be consistent in whatever guidelines they have set themselves in that front.” Read more at The Hill.

    • Dear Incoherent Anonymous, are you trying to say that ESPN is not using sports as a cover in order to advance a fascist-liberal ideology?!

      • Dear one-eye bore,

        Liberalism stopped fascism. Open your other eye so you can see the depth of society. We do not need a naive cyclops telling us what to do. That is the monster that voted for Trump.

        You can not tell the difference between liberty and tyranny.

        What a shame.

        • Dear Incoherent, did you miss taking your meds again? Cyclops, really?! Does that make you Odysseus? Besides, fascism was always a socialist-progressive phenomenon: from the days of American progressives being fans of Mussolini and eugenics to the modern day “antifa”. The truth is that “liberals” are the opposite of being liberal; “liberals” are either Machiavellian fascists or useful idiots. Which one are you?

          • Forget it. Liberals did not sit down for nazis. Which side of the holocaust denier did you wake up on today? Meds won’t help.

            Best wishes. Get better soon.
