It’s no secret the media leans left.
But in recent years, liberal bias has infected the sports media, especially ESPN.
Now one of the worldwide leader’s top anchors is in massive trouble because of her racist attack on Trump.
Jamele Hill is co-host of SC6.
ESPN’s flagship program – the 6PM SportsCenter used to be appointment viewing for sports fans –now it’s a jumble of pop culture, sports and Hill and co-host’s Michael Smith’s left-wing politics.
Hill has been a frequent Trump critic on social media and has smeared her detractors – who wish ESPN was still a sports network and not a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party – as racists.
But she took her criticisms one step too far — in now deleted tweets — where she ripped Trump as a white supremacist who was put into office by white supremacy.
The outrage was instant and massive.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the remarks by the Washington Post’s David Nakamura and she blasted Hill’s remarks as outrageous and a fireable offense.
“In a series of Twitter posts on Monday, Hill labeled Trump “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”
She called Trump “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime” and attributed his rise to white supremacy. “He has surrounded himself with white supremacists — no they are not ‘alt right’ — and you want me to believe he isn’t a white supremacist?” she tweeted.
“He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader,” she said. “And if he were not white, he never would have been elected.”
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Wednesday that she’s unsure whether the president has seen Hill’s tweets, but she said ESPN should take action.
“I’m not sure if he’s aware, but I think that’s one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN,” Sanders said.”
ESPN is the latest front in the left’s effort to turn every aspect of American life into a front in their culture wars.
The network presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner.
Colin Kaepernick receives round-the-clock praise for his anti-American national anthem protests.
And now one of ESPN’s premier hosts slimed the President of the United States, his staff, and advisers.
But ESPN’s political turn appears to be heading down a one-way street.
Conservatives like Curt Schilling, Brittany McMurphy, and Mike Ditka have been fired by ESPN.
Liberals like Hill and Smith – who never miss an opportunity to lecture America about politics – have been promoted.
ESPN mildly rebuked Hill.
Curt Schilling tweeted that liberal racism was acceptable at ESPN because management agrees with Hill’s politics.
anyone asking. She didn't get fired 'cauee disney and ESPN are fine w/liberal racism vs conservative logic. Only naysayers to that are liars

Do you think Hill’s racist comment crossed a line and that she should be fired?
