So the headline writer at ESPN was canned. The anchor who read it is suspended for 30 days. Now, here's where ESPN blew it. I'll give you people at ESPN a little guidance here, a little lesson.http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/02/20/espn_should_have_made_fun_of_jeremy_lin_s_christianity
If you would have just mocked his Christianity, everything would have been fine, and the headline writer might have been promoted. If you would have come up with the word "devout" or "failing faith" or some such thing in your headline, you would have been celebrated as a hero inside ESPN! You took a shot at the wrong thing. You took a shot at the ethnicity, where you shoulda taken a shot is at his Christianity, if you're gonna take a shot at the guy. I know these people at ESPN. I know how they think. But nobody would have blinked an eye if they woulda made fun of him for being a Christian and made some headline about how his Christian faith failed him during the game.
I hope you people at ESPN learned this. We want the best for everybody here at the EIB Network. I really hope you've learned a lesson here. It's perfectly fine to make fun of anyone's religious beliefs as long as they're Christian, but you can never mock their ethnicity unless they're white.
