ESPN radio and TV personality Dan Le Batard called his network’s relatively new politics-free stance “cowardly” in the face of President Donald Trump and his supporters’ racist remarks about four Democratic congresswomen of color.
Jimmy Pitaro, who became ESPN’s president last year, recently told the Los Angeles Times that the sports network’s audience has no interest in the network covering politics and has publicly discouraged employees from talking about politics. But in a “Dan Le Batard Show” broadcast Thursday, Le Batard vehemently disagreed with ESPN’s stance.
Looks like ESPN is sticking with its no politics policy.
