Fouled Mouth ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Suspended for a Week After Berating Parking Lot Attendant After Car was Towed … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” (VIDEO)
ESPN SHOULD BE SO PROUD …
A foul-mouthed ESPN reporter Britt McHenry went off on a tirade as she recovered her car from an impound lot after her car had been towed. Personally, I can understand that some one is upset in dealing with a tow truck company and getting one’s car back because it is an ordeal and a pain in the butt; however, McHenry’s personal attack on the individual just doing her jon was completely uncalled for. Advanced Towing has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, but with that being said, McHenry did not have to take her attack out on the employee. The VIDEO, that went viral, showed Britt McHenry going off on the female attendant as she insulted and mocked the attendant’s job, education and physical appearance after her car was towed earlier this month in Arlington, Virginia. Among her insults were, “I’m in the news, sweetheart, I will f—ing sue this place.” … “I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey.” … refered to the attendant as a “college dropout.” … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” … and “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
ESPN has suspended Britt McHenry for a week. WOW, a week? That will teach her. The 28 year old Britt McHenry attended Stetson University in Deland, Florida and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University; however, even though she attended class, it appears that she learned nothing about having class. What is even more amazing is that McHenry was told that she was being videoed and that did not shut her up from embarrassing herself. As Britt McHenry continued her verbal assault on the woman and said, “Why, cause I have a brain and you don’t” all I could think of was I wish the female attendant had said back to her, you may have a brain but you don’t seem to have your car.
The sidelined reporter — who tweeted and then deleted that Advanced Towing was “corrupt” on April 6 — can be seen on security footage nastily explaining why she’s a more worthy human being.
“I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey,” she later says, even referring to the attendant as a “college dropout.”
McHenry, 28, attended Stetson University in Deland, Fla., and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University.
The edited clip plays like a highlight reel of jabs and insults as McHenry, who joined ESPN in March 2014, attacks the looks of her prey, who is off-camera.
“Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” she asks.
But wait, there’s more. The reporter gets in a final dig before walking away: “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
McHenry apologized for her behavior Thursday after the video went viral.
“In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things,” McHenry wrote on Twitter.
“As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake.
Taking the high road Britt, you mean like what you had previously asked others to do?
Britt McHenry, the foul-mouthed ESPN reporter who was suspended for her bullying tirade, urged her Facebook friends to be kind and compassionate — just days before she verbally attacked a Virginia parking lot attendee.
“Take the high road and be nice to people,” she posted on Facebook on March 29. “Amazing how a small kind gesture can go so far, yet similarly so can the impact of negative words. Don’t choose the latter.”
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Says, ‘I Dream … Every Black Person in America Vote Republican’ at Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University (VIDEO)
Stephen A. Smith is never at a loss for words and this time nails it 100% …
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said at an Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, “What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican.” Never afraid to tackle controversial topics, Stephen A. Smith may have just given one of his most insightful points of view that even his counterpart on ‘First Take’ Skip Bayless would have to agree with. Stephen A. Smith’s comment makes complete and total sense if you look at it as opposed to the knee-jerk reaction he will get from the LEFT and many blacks. I have said for years, why do blacks vote for just one party, a Democrat party that was far from good to blacks in America, see pre-Civil War. The fact of the matter is, anyone who puts all their eggs in one basket are setting themselves up for failure. Who looks at one car, one house, one computer, one job and says without looking at anything else or questioning anything … I’ll take it.
When a political party knows they have you in your back pocket and knows they can take you for granted and still get your vote, that is true disenfranchisement and you are finished. The Democrat party knows that will get 85-90% of the black vote and not lift a finger for it. It’s expected. The only question is whether black America will listen to Stephen A. Smith’s words.
MUST SEE VIDEO …
“What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican,” he said. “Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.”
He also added, “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a damn about you.’ They’re telling the other party ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself ‘disenfranchised’ because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb. The other party knows they’ll never get you and nobody comes to address your interest.”
I would add, if Republicans continue to do the same to Conservatives … Conservativees should do the same and teach the establishment GOP a lesson they will never forget.
ESPN Sports Anchor Stuart Scott Has Died Age 49 after Battle with Cancer … However, He Will Always Be “As Cool as the Other Side of the Pillow”
It is a sad day in sports today, ESPN’s Stuart Scott has passed away at the age of 49 …
The longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott died Sunday morning after an extended battle with cancer, he was just 49 years old. Scott joined the ESPN in 1993 as the network was ramping up to launch ESPN2. That was just the launching bad for Scott as he steadily grew into one of ESPN’s most well-known, well liked and respected personalities … “Boo-Yah.” I remember the founding of ESPN in 1978, let along the launch of ESPN2 and let me just say Stuart Scott brought an energy and a fun and off the wall perspective to the broadcast that you truly looked forward to watching it. It is not very often that sports highlights were must-see TV, but that is the talent that this man had. Stuart Scott did the best thing that any sports anchor could do, he provided us with an escape from the real world and made sports fun. He talked about the games, plays and highlights like we would with our friends. God bless you Stuart Scott, our prayers go out to your family and friends … thank you … rest in peace.
REST IN PEACE STUART SCOTT
Stuart Scoot was first diagnoses with a rare form of cancer in November 2007. He took the vile disease publicly as he allowed us to share in his battle. So many of us either have been in Scott’s shoes or know some one personally who is. Stuart Scott helped us all deal with cancer in our own lives as he battled his. Scott was a beacon of light and remained so positive in his fight against cancer. One of the greatest lessons Stuart showed us all was to not let cancer paralyze you. He lived his life to the end on his terms and that meant being an ESPN sports anchor and commentator to the best of his ability. Please watch the VIDEO below of Scott’s moving speech, it is one of the best ever. For 7 years Scott battled cancer and kept the attitude that “fighting was winning, not quitting, not saying I have cancer, I can t do anything. ” Scott maintained the only way you lose against cancer is to not fight it and to just lay down and have a pity party for yourself.
His personality was infectious … Rest is peace Stuart Scott, you will forever be “as cool as the other side of the pillow.”
To all who have cancer, have known those who have cancer or currently know some one who is battling cancer, we need to remember the words that Stuart Scott said during his speech after receiving the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYS on July 16, 2014. Please make sure to watch his acceptance speech below.
“When you die, it does not mean you lose to cancer. You beat cancer in how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live. So live, live, fight like hell. And when you get too tired to fight then lay down and rest and have some body else fight for you. That’s also very important. I can’t do this “don’t give up thing” by myself. I got thousands of people on Twitter and on the streets who encourage me.”
Stuart Scott, a longtime anchor at ESPN, died Sunday morning at the age of 49.
Among the features of the new ESPN studio in Bristol is a wall of catchphrases made famous by on-air talent over the years. An amazing nine of them belong to one man — from his signature “Boo-Yah!” to “As cool as the other side of the pillow” to “He must be the bus driver cuz he was takin’ him to school.”
That man is Stuart Scott, and his contributions to the sports lexicon are writ large. But they are only one aspect of his legacy. When he passed away, he left behind so much more. He inspired his colleagues with his sheer talent, his work ethic and his devotion to his daughters, Taelor, 19, and Sydni, 15. He defied convention and criticism to help bring this network into a new century. He spoke to the very athletes he was talking about with a flair and a style that ESPN president John Skipper says, “changed everything.”
“He didn’t just push the envelope,” says sports radio host and former ESPN anchor Dan Patrick. “He bulldozed it.”
Stuart Scott was honored for his fight against cancer at the 2014 ESPY Awards, where he became the latest recipient of the Jimmy V ESPY Award for Perseverance. The award named for college basketball coach Jim Valvano, whose life was also taken by cancer in 1993, and who gave probably one of the greatest speeches in sports history that speaks to one’s everyday life, “Don’t Give Up, Don’t Ever Give Up”.
Stuart Scott’s Moving ESPYS Speech,
UPDATE I: Remembering Stuart Scott:
Steve Levy, who came to ESPN shortly before Stuart in August 1993 and served as his co-host for the first “SportsCenter” from the new studio last June, put it this way: “I think the audience recognized that when Stuart was on, there was going to be something special. And to his credit, he brought something special every night he was on.”
Tributes to Scott on Twitter, #BooYah
Remembering Stuart Scott’s first set at ESPN … muted colors in 1D!!!
He made us laugh … ESPN commercial with Stuart Scott and Maria Sharapova … “Can I get that can back?” Priceless!!!
UPDATE II: ESPN Colleagues Remember Stuart Scott. (VIDEO)
Chris Berman, Rich Eisen, Dan Patrick and Gus Ramsey look back on their time working with Stuart Scott
Barack Obama in Interview on ‘The Herd’ …”I Spend Most of My Time Watching ESPN in the Morning” (VIDEO)
COULD BARACK OBAMA REMOTELY TAKE HIS JOB AS PRESIDENT SERIOUS?
Nothing more need be said than Barack Obama’s own words to describe his presidency, “I Spend Most of My Time Watching ESPN in the Morning.” And when he is not doing that, Obama is golfing. It has been previously reported that he certainly was not attending daily Intelligence meetings, I guess he was too busy watching Sports Center, DaDaDa, DaDaDa! The United States has a record number of people on Food Stamps, unemployed and underemployed and this clown is watching Sports Center. I guess we now know what Obama was doing during Benghazi.
Why doesn’t Obama do the country a favor and quit the presidency and become an anchor on ESPN, please!
President Barack Obama was a guest on ESPN’s “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd this morning. Obama started with a plug for the Obamacare website and how it’s working these days, but he went to on to discuss sports, his viewing habits and not wanting to hear political talk on TV.
“I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning. I get so much politics; I don’t, you know, want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day,” President Obama told ESPN radio.
ESPN’s Samantha Ponder Shreds Florida St QB Jameis Winston … “We’re Asking that You Don’t Lie, You Don’t Cheat, You Don’t Steal, and You Don’t Disrespect Women.”
ESPN’s Samantha Ponder rips Florida State QB Jameis Winston for his conduct and lack of character. During Saturday’s ESPN College Game Day, Samantha Ponder said what should be the obvious in what we expect not only from Jameis Winston, but from all individuals, and not just college athletes.
“Here’s what I’m not buying. I’m not buying that the expectations are too high. Here’s what we’re asking from him: We’re asking that you don’t lie, you don’t cheat, you don’t steal, and you don’t disrespect women,” Ponder said. “And I know people want to say, ‘Oh, he’s naive and there’s some immaturity there.’ I just think we’re not giving him enough credit. He knows right from wrong. He understands that the things he’s done are wrong but he continues to make those same mistakes.”
It is too bad FSU did not lose last night, it would have been an even greater learning experience for Jameis Winston.
Tim Tebow gets a new gig, although not as quarterback in NFL … Tewbow back where he belongs, the SEC!!!
Tim Tebow, the former University of Florida Gator, Heisman Trophy winner and NFL QB, has been hired as a football analyst for the SEC Network. Tim Tebow said of his new position, “I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity. When I was six years old I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC.”
We wish Tebow the best of luck in his endeavors. I think he is a class act and only wish he had been given an opportunity in the NFL. With the quarterback play I have seen, or the lack thereof, no one can tell me he could not have helped a team do better than they did. Look what he did in Denver, even with management and GM John Elway rooting against him.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Former Florida quarterback and Heisman winner, Tim Tebow, has been hired as a college football analyst for the SEC Network launching in August 2014. Through a multi-year agreement, Tebow’s primary role will be as an analyst for SEC Nation, the network’s traveling pregame show that will originate from a different SEC campus each week beginning August 28, 2014. In the months leading up to launch and after, he will contribute to a variety of ESPN platforms including SportsCenter, ESPN Radio, and the network’s Heisman Trophy coverage, offering in-depth perspective as a legendary Southeastern Conference player.
The SEC Network:
The Southeastern Conference and ESPN have signed a 20-year agreement through 2034 to create and operate a multiplatform network which will launch in August 2014. The new network and its accompanying digital platform will air SEC content 24/7 including more than 1,000 events in its first year.
I can only wonder at what point SEC and Tebow morals and God will clash with PC liberal ESPN. Just saying.
Obama says he wants to be an ESPN Sports Center host after he retires as president. Scared Monkeys says, why wait …
HOPE & CHANGE … Well now we know what Barack Obama’s master plan was in getting the job as president of the United States. It was a resume builder for his dream job, to be a host at ESPN’s Sports Center. As stated at Hot Air, now it makes sense why Obama has devoted so much time and effort to March Madness brackets, the Super Bowl, and the World Series for the last five years “while casually mucking up giant parts of his day job” as president. I say, why wait? Please just quit now and go to ESPN, please! Although I will also sadly say that he is probably more qualified to be an ESPN host than he is president. I guess we now know why he takes the job so seriously.
Just don’t let him be the new Jimmy “the Greek” picking sports games, as Barack the Socialist is not very good at picking “winners and losers”. I can see Lee Corso on Game Day doing a perpetual loop of “NOT SO FAST!”
From The Hollywood Reporter:
If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.
At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
Weasel Zippers some what agrees, “Well, he is an expert at reading off a teleprompter”.
However, I would remind all as I did intern for a short period of time at a news outlet that everything is not provided to hosts on a teleprompter. Many times a producer is talking in your ear and you have to ad-lib. I would suggest that Barack Obama nt use the video below as his audition tape.
Keith Olbermann, The worst hire in the world …
The NY Daily News is reporting that Keith Olbermannn may be returning to ESPN. Olbermann worked at ESPN from from 1992 to 1997 and has expressed recently wanting to return. Are you kidding? Obviously the suits at ESPN have forgot what an obnoxious nuisance and PITA that Olbermann was when he first worked there. Hey ESPN, have you forgot when Olbermann referred to ESPN’s Bristol, CT headquarters as a “godforsaken place?” Some how this lib is a sought after talent after being ousted from MSNBC and Current TV, Really? I think this tells us more of the direction of ESPN that it does Olbermann. Seriously, why would a network supposed to be about sports hire a liberal moonbat? Count me on the list of watching alternative sports networks if this is the direction that ESPN plans to go.
So this is ESPN’s response to Fox’s August launch of Fox Sports 1?
The Daily News has learned the Worldwide Leader is in serious discussions with Olbermann to host a New York-based late night talk show on ESPN2, according to industry sources. The sources said the situation was still “very fluid” and no decision on green-lighting Olbermann or the project had been made.
If the move is made, it could blunt the buzz Fox hopes to generate with its August launch of Fox Sports 1.
This could be the first shot in an all-sports cable TV war. The sources added that ESPN is also considering unleashing a multimillion-dollar “SportsCenter” advertising campaign/counterattack that would air around the launch of FS1.
Still, the timing of an Olbermann hire would be strange. Last month, Turner Sports hired him to host its Major League Baseball postseason studio show on TBS.
So this is what ESPN thinks is going to restore their viewership, after so many other networks, including NBC and FOX creating competition with sports networks? They have been raiding ESPN’s talent of late in an effort to challenge ESPN for market share. It just goes to show you though that TV exec’s have to be among so of the most stupid individuals alive. Who on early would rehire such a malcontent like Olbermann and some one who is so polarizing with his liberalism. Why would anyone hire some one where automatically 1/2 of America would not watch. ESPN boss John Skipper and the rest of the suits might be the “worst person in the world”.
UPDATE I: Hire Olbermann, but this was the same network who chastised PGA golfer Paul Azinger who criticized President Obama for playing to much golf? And felt the need to apologize for long time sports announcer Brent Musberger’s comments about Miss Alabama Katherine Webb during BCS Champ broadcast … “You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman… Whoa!” Yet they will hire and walking-talking lighting rod for ignorant and inflammatory comments?
ESPN Apologizes for Brent Musburger’s Comments About Miss Alabama Katherine Webb During BCS Champ Broadcast … “You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman… Whoa!”
HOW ABSOLUTELY SILLY … So this is where a PC and all too often offended America has come to … we have to apologize for stating the obvious when a girl is beautiful, REALLY?
Ans the real winner of the 2012 BCS National Championship Game …
Alabama Katherine Webb.
OK, Brent might have come close to crossing county lines, but he just barely avoided entering creepsville. America, some times we just have to laugh as I hardly believe long time sports announcer icon Brent Musberger meant anything malicious by his comments regarding Webb’s beauty. But that did not stop the overly sensitive and often offended libs at ESPN. ESPN has apologized for veteran sports announcer Brent Musberger’s comments during the BCS Championship game between the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. During the broadcast that needed some thing to keep people’s interest as the game was out of hand in the first 5 minutes, Musberger made comments regarding Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s rather beautiful girlfriend Katherine Webb. The Bama beauty is a 2011 Auburn graduate and Miss Alabama. Needless to say the video went viral.
“You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman… Whoa!”
However, on Tuesday, ESPN responded to the commentary with an apology:
“We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”
Apologize? The 73 year old Musberger made Miss Webb an over night sensation and as Katherine Webb gains 175000 Twitter followers in one night. I think it goes to show just how bad this BCS National Championship game really was. No one is talking about Alabama’s dominate victory 42-14. Nor do they care that Notre Dame decided not to show up and was overwhelmingly over matched. All of the talk is about Katherine Webb. I hardly think that an apology is in order if the one who was being talked about did not mind the comments. Lighten up ESPN.
“It’s been actually kind of fun,” the 23-year-old model and Miss Alabama USA 2012 told The Associated Press.
“I just couldn’t believe it,” said Webb, who, according to her pageant biography, graduated with a business degree from Alabama rival Auburn University in 2011. “I was just in complete surprise.”
Dee Dee Bonner, McCarron’s mother, said the two laughed as Webb’s Twitter count grew.
“We were like, `Oh my God,”‘ Bonner said. “She said, `All I want to do is date your son.’ We’ve been laughing about it. It’s quite shocking.”
Note to ESPN … Katherine Webb is a beautiful young woman and a college grad … no apologies needed!
UPDATE I: Katherine Webb even came out and said that Musburger’s comments didn’t bother her.
“It was kind of nice,” she said. “I didn’t look at it as creepy at all. For a woman to be called beautiful, I don’t see how that’s an issue.”
Newsflash to ESPN … Miss Alabama Katherine Webb is beautiful and I am sure that many boys have taken Brent’s advice and put down their video games and started throwing the pigskin in the back yard. Sorry, but I could see another famed sports announcer Keith Jackson saying … “Whoa Nellie!!!”
If ESPN wants an apology, maybe they should ask one from the Golden Domer’s of Notre Dame for not bothering to show up for the BCS National Championship game and I am an ND fan.
EXIT QUESTION … Who was more offended, those that heard Musberger’s comments regarding Katherine Webb or Notre Dame’s play on the field and the obvios lack of coaching, preparation and a game plan for the BCS Championship?
UPDATE II: Yea, this was just so terrible what Brent Musberger did, that’s why Donald Tmp has now asked the Alabama beauty to be a judge for his Miss USA contest.
Hank Williams Jr. Releases Anti-Obama Song ‘Take Back Our Country’ … “Hey Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago … Take your teleprompter with you.”
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME HANK WILLIAMS JR. MUSIC THAT TAKES ON THE MSM, ESPN, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND OBAMA?
Hank Williams Jr sings … “Hey Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago … Take your teleprompter with you.”
Hank Williams Jr. no longer has to worry about a liberal, weeny, in the tank, double standard media for Barack Obama to take him off the air for “freedom of speech” and taking comments completely out of context. Instead we have Hank Jr. at his best driving the Left crazy and skewering Obama with the lyrics, And now for your listening enjoyment …
