Bomani Jones, one of ESPN’s more politically outspoken employees, says in a new interview that he sees changes in how the network is treating liberal opinion among employees.
Jones, who started with ESPN radio in 2012 and who seems to have suffered no real repercussions for his liberal views, once praised ESPN for allowing left-wing opinion by exclaiming,”I don’t think anybody at ESPN is going to get in trouble for saying something that is factually undeniable.” Jones made those comments before the network handed out suspensions to outspoken liberal employee Jemele Hill.
The network’s bosses have always been quick to punish conservatives for supposed infractions of the company’s policies, but, Jemele Hill aside, ESPN bosses have rarely done a thing about the liberals.
In fact, Travis recently reported that Jones’ ratings were terrible: “Sources @espn tell me @bomani_jones radio show being canceled because he’s lost over 90 affiliates & has worst ratings in ESPN radio history.”
