Jemele Hill is out at ESPN

Jemele Hill needed to be out at ESPN. Hill knew it. ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro knew it. And, now, Jemele Hill is out at ESPN.

The marriage between ESPN and Hill — the controversial sports commentator who waded into politics and sparred with President Donald Trump — has long been stuck in irreconcilable differences. Since leaving “SportsCenter” earlier this year, she has barely worked, making a divorce the obvious conclusion.

A buyout of her reported $2.5 million per year contract has been completed and her last day will be Friday, according to sources.

[..]

Nearly one year ago, on Sept. 11, 2017, Hill called Trump “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself [with] other white supremacists.” Though it broke ESPN’s social media rules about commenting on politics unrelated to sports, then-network president John Skipper failed to suspend Hill. The White House called for Hill to be fired.


This is the part that jumps out at me:

“. . . her reported $2.5 million per year contract . . .”

I’m guessing that ESPN could find plenty of good people to fill that position at $.5 million per year. No wonder ESPN is losing money.

    Apparently CNN thinks the more they pay their staff the better the staff’s output will be. I thought Generous Motors learned that fallacious lesson decades ago.

    She looks great planting that tree.

    If you read the replies almost none of them see anything wrong with Jon Karl rudely shouting questions like that

      I’m guessing the funeral is going to rival Wellstone’s.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        To these people Wellstone is probably small potatoes. I think they are trying to out do Wellington’s or even that of Alexander the Great. That barge is looking more and more like a possibility.

        Nothing like hogging the entire Memorial Day weekend for this ostentatious display.

          Who is watching TV on Memorial Day weekend?

          Besides, they gotta have an excuse to not cover Ohr’s testifying to Congress behind closed doors today.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          I was thinking more along the lines of the barrage of push notices on road closures and timing of each and every minuscule item on the itinerary for those of us in the general vicinity of swampland or Annapolis. Because they will likely even try and include weather info in addition to traffic because that way they know they reach all the people who block/turn off the “news” notices.

          Every time you hear a push notice a fallen senator gets his pitchfork, red horned cap and cape.

    Thank you guys for your guidance on QAnon. Now, they are claiming McCain’s was a suicide. SMH.

      Underdog syndrome. Only the US media could make the President of the United States look like an underdog and make a culture famous for cheering on UNDERDOGS go up in approval numbers after 99% negative (and FAKE) “stories”. The stupid putzes don’t understand the American culture.

    LAW PROFESSOR JONATHAN TURLEY CRITICIZES GOFUNDME FOR ALLOWING PEOPLE TO PURCHASE LEGAL TESTIMONY

    George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley criticized GoFundMe on “Fox & Friends” Monday and said the website is allowing people to purchase legal testimony.

    “It’s a strange evolution of the role of this site,” Turley said. “GoFundMe has become a site where can you essentially purchase testimony that people go out there and they really ramp up their expected testimony.”

    • Lulu says:

      It is a money laundering operation. This is how they are paying them off. “Buying testimony” is a fancy and politically correct way to say it. The banks are too regulated and watched too carefully now to do it all so they are paying off ULaunderMe to do it. If we had an FBI they would be on it and could trace the funny money in small denominations.

        A fund for sexual harassment victims that started last year has more than $22 million in it.

        • lyn says:

          It’s a legal defense fund. https://www.gofundme.com/timesup

          • Jadzia says:

            Although it claims to be a legal defense fund, by all appearances it is not. First of all, given that they are supposedly on the side of victims, who the hell would they be “defending”? In the event of litigation, the women they claim to support would be plaintiffs–contingency plaintiffs, not incurring legal fees or costs unless they win. Second, I haven’t heard of them giving one penny to any sexual harassment victim–indeed, the only thing they seem to have spent $ on are ads and billboards about how awesome and woke they are. A LOT of questions have been raised about what is actually happening with the $. Third, they have done very little (little meaning zero) to support unfamous women who had their careers ruined by the likes of the guy whose name rhymes with Schmarvey. But their black dresses on the red carpet sure were pretty.
