So ESPN continues to lose more and more points with me every single day. How Skip Bayless and Steven A. Smith maintain employment there baffles me. Now they’ve just crossed the line though, they’ve had the Chris Berman videos removed from youtube. Then afterwards they tried to downplay it like Chris Berman is some kind of nice guy:
The off air videos are now nearly a decade old and do not reflect his typical workplace demeanor, his relationships with co-workers, nor the contributions he has made to ESPN over many years. Chris has a tremendous connection with sports fans and his body of work should not be judged by a few minutes of unguarded language uttered years ago. We aren’t excusing the language used and will be emphasizing to our workforce the importance of using appropriate language in the workplace.
Oh well… It was fun while it lasted.
