I worked with her at the Orlando Sentinel several years ago.
President Donald Trump is "absolutely" planning to sign a resolution condemning hate groups, the White House said Wednesday, after both the Senate and the House passed a resolution in the wake of a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. "We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate", the ESPN statement said.
That really isn't surprising as they are a business and having their employee bash the president may be bad for business (though with Trump's approval rating so low, it might actually be good to support Hill).
"Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime".
And what's even worse is Hill is pretty much painting anybody who voted for Trump as a white supremacist.
Others criticized Kaepernick for supporting Hill. As part of the protest, Kaepernick chose not to stand during the national anthem last season.
"I'm not going to speak for that individual, but I know that the president has met, again, with people like Sen". While Hill is taking the brunt of the backlash, ESPN is walking the tightrope of racism, sports and politics, and the network is deciding when boundaries have been pushed.
"Sports have always been political", she said.
Hill was on ESPN's SC6 as normal Tuesday.
ESPN fired baseball analyst Curt Schilling, who has strong conservative opinions, in 2016 for a Facebook post about transgender people. The bill would have required transgender persons to use public restrooms that corresponded to the sex they were assigned at birth. Glad you could live with voting for him. I wouldn't go so far as to say that her response was full-on authoritarianism, but - as with so many things in the Trump administration - it's skirting dangerously close. Now you need laws telling us differently?
