ESPN is a liberal entity. Witness Berman and Tom Jackson’s trashing of Rush Limbaugh after he left, or Peter Gammons’ affinity for left wing polticians.
Why are sports reporters so left-leaning? I’ve always wondered about that. Sports is such a meritocracy, but they produce some of the most liberal moonbats (witness Keith Olberpuke). Al Michaels is one of the few real class acts. He publically praised Katherine Harris during a play (only because some wise-ass commentator, I can’t remember who, made a snarky inappropriate and out-of-place remark about her during the same play), calling her an American Heroine. He also gave the proper respect and recognition of the vice president-elect when he appeared at the Eagles game recently (even though Eagles fans weren’t quite so respectful!)
