Sports networks loses it

Confirmed: ESPN Is As Stupid As We Thought

It was a story too dumb to be real: reports yesterday emerged from ESPN critic Clay Travis at Outkick the Coverage that ESPN had pulled an Asian announcer named Robert Lee off a University of Virginia college football game to avoid offending idiots. I have to admit, I didn’t think it could be true. How unbelievably stupid do you have to be to think that someone whose name is similar to a Confederate general – albeit absent the all-important middle initial – would lead to triggering and upset viewers if he called a Charlottesville-based sporting event.

There is much more.

ESPN looks bad because of this decision.  It also seems to confirm a recent stereotype by the sports network that it has become an organization using sports to push a ridiculous liberal agenda.
