no i want him to question how she is advocating social justice by doing what she did. She didn't deserve a platform like you'd give a sexual assault victim, allowed to share a story without question. he yells at kevin durant's mom, but this lady gets carte blanche to make ridiculous statement after ridiculous statement without any push back.

Meh, i don't disagree with your larger point, but I think you're expecting too much from the show.


They hardly yelled at KD's mom. They jokingly said Lebron is better to her. It was just silly disrespect. There was no malice

I think Dan was being cautious because it wasn't an interview that ESPN would normally do or even allow. Like Ron said, I wouldn't be surprised if Dan had to pay out of pocket for it and was given some guidance on how it should go. He says all the time that they make small concessions for ESPN allowing their shenanigans.

And to be fair, while he didn't directly tell her she was full of sh*t, every discussion before and after the interview was basically making fun of her idea of activism, the ridiculousness of the entire thing, and the idea of her as a human cocaine platter.

This was a real and serious topic, those others arenít. Especaily in todayís climate, you canít go after a woman in this instance. Even if sheís a cocaine platter


I think he let the audience roll their eyes on their own. It was obvious that she was a bit of a fool.

You think thatís all a bad thing. I donít. Sometimes itís better not to be a jerk and say whatever you want.

I try to be a better person and not say the stupid shit I used to. It doesnít take that much effort.

We donít need to call people fags, retards, etc.

i dont call people fags or retards anymore either. but i also think people should be allowed to make jokes about harvey weinstein without apologizing.

not my fault you've been swept up by the morality through being social justice wave where the color of your skin or the way you identify yourself makes you the only authority on something.

Meh, I donít agree with that either. The people youíre referencing are on the fringes. The loonies with 10 followers get mainstream covereage by saying stupid shit. Media outlets want the clickbait and grab it Thatís the biggest problem of them all. And iím Not taking about msm. Iím talking about clickbait crap that gets aggregated by yahoo and the like.

Anyway, people l, when they actually talk in person, usually find they have more in common than they realize

Dan Lebatard cried repeatedly on yesterdayís show that if someone makes a joke and women say they are offended you should shut up listen and apologize because only women can judge the appropriateness of a joke about Harvey Weinstein. He makes that point over and over about all kinds of things - just listen to them, they are black, only thy can truly understand this.

That is total BS and he sounds like an idiot when he says it.

So I donít think itís just the fringes anymore.

Meh I don't think its that outrageous.

You've already conceded you've done it with gays and people with mental defects.

As far as I know you aren't gay or retarded, but you've admittedly stopped using the word fag or retard because those groups find it offensive.

Why do you draw the line at women or blacks?

Listen, I'm in agreement that our society is way to into the PC culture and the trendy thing these days is faux outrage, but I can understand Dan's point about listening when a group you aren't a part of tells you something is offensive.

I may not completely agree, but I get it.

The joke thing was overblown though. Probably shouldn't have said it, but I think anyone familiar with Al Michaels understood he meant no harm by it.

I guess to some degree, you canít understand someoneís pain or point of view if you havenít lived it. Itís where empathy comes in. A lot of people on the right in these arguments just canít muster empathy.

Itís all a cluster. There are shades of right and wrong in all of it. But letís not do a false equivalency thing

Thereís a big difference between calling someone a fag to hurt them and Al Michaelís joke. We cannot allow the oppression olympics and outrage culture bullshit of today prevent people from going for the joke. We gotta have something to laugh at or itís all misery. I wanna laugh dammit.
