If you had ESPN on your television Saturday morning, you had the privilege of hearing host Michelle Beadle tell all white men to “Shut up and listen for five minutes.”
Beadle gave her opinion on recent comments made by Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
During a Wednesday presser, a female reporter had asked Newton about the effectiveness of the routes of his receivers. Newton condescendingly responded, “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes. It’s funny.”
In her rant, Michelle Beadle sat at the desk with two black men, and had some strong words about white men. I’m not quite sure how the Cam Newton-female reporter story resulted into blatant attacks against white guys.
Beadle said, “Not to stereotype, but I hear a lot from white men on these topics. You guys have a lot to say how black people should feel, about how women should feel. I gotta be honest with you guys. Shut up and listen for 5 minutes. Like, you will never know what I’ve been through, what he’s been through. Just listen. God forbid, you learn something.”
ESPN’s business model of going as far to the left as possible isn’t working out too well, and it’s resulting in the network spiraling downward. I do give ESPN some credit, though. They are consistent.
