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.

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.

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.

Ok, well I'm sure I could find an equal number of sources regarding Sinclair politicizing local news.

Which was my point the whole time.

When the right is confronted with things they don't like or agree with, the default response is to shout fake news or criticize the source for their liberal bias.

You just did it with Bob's MSNBC video. It goes against what you desperately want to believe so you immediately dismiss it as an untrustworthy liberal source without actual judging the information presented on its merits.
