Robert Lee is an Asian-American.

Dude got bumped from UVA vs William & Mary, and upgraded to Pitt vs Youngstown St.

That's like going from coach to first class. Win!

Who would complain about that?

It doesn't matter how you fucking twist it. My original point stands. Fox News is deceiving its audience in material ways, and as you have demonstrated, its audience is dumb enough to be fooled.

NY Times:

NY Times: ESPN Pulls Announcer Robert Lee From Virginia Game Because of His Name

�We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name,� ESPN said in a statement. �In that moment it felt right to all parties. It�s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play-by-play for a football game has become an issue.�

Fox News
BlueSardine says

From the Fox News article

In the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Va., ESPN decided to pull one of its announcers from calling a University of Virginia football game -- because his name is Robert Lee.

Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game "simply because of the coincidence of his name," ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

To summarize: In direct opposition to what your claim is above, Fox News did not omit the EXPLICIT REASON espn gave. While Fox News did omit the reasoning behind the timing of the move, that in and of itself is not the EXPLICIT REASON espn gave.

Reposting what the hypocritical liar tried to suppress. There is no way that Shrek did not know exactly how Fox News is deceiving.

The blockquote from Fox clearly shows a quote of ESPN cut off to change its meaning. Fox omitted the first two thirds of the sentence as well as the subsequent two sentences. All three of these things materially change the meaning of the statement...

More proof you are the loser, i am the Winner!

The decision to remove an Asian-American announcer named Robert Lee from calling University of Virginia’s home opener — “simply because of the coincidence of his name,” as ESPN inexplicably admits — unsurprisingly lit up the Internet with outrage, jokes and memes.
http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/espn-robert-lee-moment-proves-trump-won-monument-debate-article-1.3435388

More damning evidence kills your lie, right from the capital of libbydom...

His employer, ESPN, announced Tuesday night that the name he shares with the Confederate general made him a poor choice for calling a University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville, where a recent protest over the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee left a woman dead and became part of the national dialogue

Even Sports Illustrated thinks you're a dickhead

In what ESPN says was a joint decision between the broadcaster and the company, Lee was removed from broadcasting Virginia’s season-opening football game on Sept. 2 against William & Mary because of the similarity of his name to the Confederate general Robert E. Lee. He was re-assigned to call Youngstown State at Pittsburgh on ESPN3 on the same day.

Dan it seems as if you're implying that as bad as the left is, the Republicans are almost always worse.

The most extreme leftists are every bit as bad as the most extreme rightist. However, such extremists make up a tiny minority of the Democratic voters, less than 1%. Whereas the corresponding extremists on the right make up at least a third if not the majority of the Republican voters.

The post that triggered Blue Sardine's turrets demonstrating that the Fox News audience is every bit as deceptive as Fox News.

Dan8267 says


It [Fox New's article] omits the explicit reason given by ESPN for removing the sportscaster and that it was doing so perforced. Instead, Fox News misrepresents ESPN as trying to make some silly political statement and callously disregarding the career of a minority employee. This is downright libel.

This is why you should never reference Fox News. It just outright deceives. It has absolutely no integrity.

Now I disagree with ESPN's decision, or even that they should have the right to do so, but I would not misrepresent this as malice.

Furthermore, the Republican Party platform is that a corporation should be able to fire or redirect any employee for any reason. So it is exactly Republican policies that enable ESPN to remove Lee from the broadcast with zero legal consequences. According to GOP principles, this is no one's business except the corporation's.

OK, now confirmed. But Fox New still twisted the story into something far more perverse. From the Fox News article

Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game "simply because of the coincidence of his name," ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
