Jemele Hill opens up about leaving ESPN's 'conservative culture'

quote:

Jemele Hill is getting candid about the "conservative culture" at ESPN that led to her contentious departure following an infamous tweet about ex-President Donald Trump. 

"I wasn’t a good fit for the 'SportsCenter' culture. Definitely not a good fit for the management that was overseeing 'SportsCenter' at the time. And I got tired. I got really tired of fighting everyday to be myself," Hill said Thursday on Kenny Mayne's podcast, "Hey Mayne."

"By far 'SportsCenter' was the most high-profile job I’ve had at ESPN," Hill recalled. "It was the best-paying job I had at ESPN. But it’s also the worst job I had at ESPN."


quote:

"It’s a conservative culture at ESPN and so this idea that ESPN is being run by flower children is just a lie," Hill said. "That’s not how it is. It’s the opposite, if anything. As you know all too well."

She continued: “Once (critics) started seeing my face, Michael’s face become more prominent… then suddenly ESPN is too liberal because what they’re really trying to say is 'Oh, y’all must be liberal-leaning because you got all these women and all these Black people who are suddenly on my TV everyday. So that means that this company has certainly given in to a brigade of liberalism.'"

Good lord, if that's her watered down version of herself, how miserable is she in real life?

There are black people on ESPN playing sports literally every day.

She was hardly the first SportsCenter anchor to be black. Stuart Scott was and continues to be one of the most well liked anchors ESPN has ever had.

Weird that racism didn't take down anyone other than her and Michael Smith.

So "conservative" ESPN has produced:

Left-wing loon Keith Olberman
Openly racist Jemele Hill
Stephen A. (outrageous, egregious, preposterous!)
Self-loathing Max Kellerman
BLM apologist Kirk Herbstreit

You can go down the list...ESPN "personalities" made MSNBC look like Rush Limbaugh.

ESPN once hired Rush

And promptly fired him for questioning the media's adoration and promotion of certain quarterbacks that were in fact average.
