Since the Fox News Channel is dominating the cable TV market, it was inevitable that Hollywood would focus attention on the network and produce movies that show its negative side in the hope that liberals would flock to theaters to see them. While that was apparently the motivation behind Bombshell -- a “docudrama” that deals with the sexual misconduct charges made by female employees that brought down former FNC head Roger Ailes -- the film has been a flop at the box office, dropping from 6th place to 9th during its second weekend in wide release.



The Atlantic magazine writer Jemele Hill launched an attack this week on pro golfers Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson for agreeing to play in a January tournament in the oppressive nation of Saudi Arabia. She also accuses President Donald Trump and other Republicans of hypocrisy for lashing out at the NBA and China two months ago, while remaining silent about Saudi Arabia's atrocities.



ESPN First Take yell man Stephen A. Smith is under fire for making a mockery of journalism ethics. On Friday, The Root writer Stephen A. Crockett Jr. joined in with Jemele Hill's Twitter criticisms of Smith for secretly working with Jay-Z to arrange last month's failed NFL workout for Colin Kaepernick. Crockett and Hill, a writer for The Atlantic, are giving Smith no mercy.



Awful Announcing's Ben Koo posted a lengthy report on Fox Sports emerging as a major threat to ESPN's long monopoly on college football coverage. Declaring a key part of that rivalry as political, Koo likened ESPN to a "punching bag" and Fox Sports as the alternative of choice for "disgruntled conservatives."



RESTON, VA — On Wednesday, Media Research Center Founder and President Brent Bozell released an open letter to Atlantic editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg about the magazine’s hiring of Jemele Hill, a sports journalist who last week joked about assassinating Donald Trump. 



Former ESPN host and current The Atlantic writer Jemele Hill may be getting a visit from the Secret Service soon as she disgustingly joked about killing Donald Trump during last night’s State of the Union Address. 
 



The furor over Roseanne Barr's racist comments and the demise of her television program have rippled across Disney and all the way to ESPN's Bristol, Ct., headquarters. And why wouldn't it? ESPN's Jemele Hill and the recently rehired Keith Olbermann could erupt in outrageous outbursts at any time and cause the Disney-owned company additional public relations nightmares.



Showing how delusional CNN and MSNBC are with wall-to-wall coverage of Roseanne Barr’s deranged, racist tweet about former Obama official Valerie Jarrett, it took until at least the ninth question in Wednesday’s White House Press Briefing for the now-fired ABC star to come up.



Meghan McCain was the only one to hold ESPN’s Jemele Hill accountable for the incendiary comments she made about President Trump last September, on the View’s February 21 show.

 


It's only fitting that Jemele Hill is leaving ESPN and Bristol, Connecticut for its black culture blog, The Undefeated, located in the nerve center of American politics -- Washington, D.C. The Washington Post's Matt Bonesteel and Jake Russell reported today that the former Sports Center co-anchor will “write about the intersection of sports and politics when applicable.” We can expect her to park in that intersection often and loudly.  



ESPN is about to get less angry, and hopefully less political. Jemele Hill is reportedly leaving Sports Center for ESPN’s The Undefeated blog on Friday, Feb. 2, after just a year hosting the show.



Some people express their controversial support for others in bizarre ways.

Girls’ Lena Dunham was apparently thrilled to discover that ESPN’s Jemele Hill was following her on Twitter, and announced to her followers: “Holy shit @jemelehill following me is like finding out definitively that God is here and she reads your blog. Fan dance.”
