Hypocrisy: So Much for Freedom of Speech at ESPN, Warn Azinger to Stop Mocking Tweets about President Obama … “The Potus has played more golf”



Just another example of media bias, How ironic, ESPN who benefits from the US Constitutional Right of Freedom of the Press, also seems to have an issue with the First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech. Shame on you ESPN. Sadly the liberal MSM has infiltrated the sports media.

ESPN chastised Paul Azinger, former PGA golfer and ESPN golfing analyst for tweeting that President Barack Obama plays for golf than he does and that he has created more jobs than Obama. ESPN stated that it went against their social network policy for on-air talent and reporters. If its the truth, is that considered mocking? However, if you are going to have a policy that could include termination, you best apply the rules consistently.

LET’S GET REAL ESPN, YOU POLICY PERTAINS TO ONLY MOCKING BARACK OBAMA. Of course this has nothing to do with the fact that the parent company of ESPN, ABC, paid beaucoup bucks to elect Obama now does it. How pathetically sad is it that even sports media has become so liberal that they stoop to this level. A note to ESPN, ask Oprah how her media career went after she publically supported and tied herself to Barack Obama. Just saying.

ESPN is coming down on Paul Azinger for mocking President Obama on Twitter. The golf analyst tweeted Thursday the commander in chief plays more golf than he does — and that Azinger has created more jobs this month than Obama has.

On Friday ESPN ‘reminded” Azinger his venture into political punditry violates the company’s updated social network policy for on-air talent and reporters.

ESPN, you pathetic hypocrites. Nice consistent policy you have there ESPN as pointed out by Dana Loesch at Big Journalism.  If an on air talent like Kenny Mayne makes fun of, mocks are makes rude comments of a Republican like Sarah Palin, that’s is considered perfectly ok.  Dana has a list of numerous tweets that show quite the hypocrisy taking place in Bristol, CT.

No double standard here, eh? ESPN, you best figure out who your audience is. I would dare say you just lost many viewers of you NFL football pregame show. People do have options, keep it up ESPN, link yourself to an unpopular president like Barack Obama and you to will feel the affects like he is going to in 2012. You can let ESPN know how you feel by contacting them HERE.

      ESPN is just following the Democrat party line. It is suposed to be politically neutral, but anyone who has watched their programs over the last few years knows it is slanted.

      Fran, are you really that stupid?
