It was a Friday on local sports radio in Washington, DC. The last broadcast before a Redskins game. So, naturally, ESPN 980’s Tony Kornheiser decided to have political journalist and editor Howard Fineman of the Huffington Post on to talk about Paul Ryan and the Tea Party. Kornheiser, a long time Washington Post sports columnist before moving to radio, wondered: “Are they like ISIS trying to establish a Caliphate here?” Fineman: “Yes! Yes! That’s a very good analogy! Without the violence obviously, but yes, they are a rejectionist front.”
Allow me to introduce ESPN race huckster Bomani Jones. Who made a point of “asking the question” (which is the leftist sports media’s preferred cowardly method for alleging racism without actually having to do it) of whether or not white Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and black Redskins QB Robert Griffin III have been treated differently by the Redskins staff and D.C. sports media, because of race.

In addition to Curt Schilling, there appears to be another person ESPN isn’t too fond of. That would be San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, well, and babies.
