On Friday the network reminded all employees to avoid politics. The reminder was prompted by ESPN Radio host Dan Le Batard who railed against President Trump and ESPN on his show last week.
Le Batard said, “We here at ESPN don’t have the stomach for the fight. We don’t talk about what is happening unless there is some sort of weak, cowardly sports angle that we can run it through.”
Le Batard also mentioned Jemele Hill in his rant. Hill got political while with the network which eventually lead to her departure.
