ESPN’s Sehorn: ESPN Told Me to Curtail My Political Beliefs, So Why Not Hold Jemele Hill to Same Standard?

ESPNU college football analyst Jason Sehorn said his employer is “contradicting” itself by its handling of “SportsCenter: SC6” co-host Jemele Hill’s Twitter rant where she called President Donald Trump a “white supremacist.”

Sehorn, an outspoken conservative, told “Fox & Friends” Thursday that ESPN told him to keep his political beliefs away from his job, and questioned why ESPN is not holding Hill to the same standard.

“I, as a fan and a viewer, tune into ESPN and I don’t want politics,” Sehorn explained. “And I don’t want to look at a person and have to think politics. So, I understood when they asked me to curtail some of my political aspirations. When I see it now, it’s like, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, you told me one thing and you run a program one way and here you are contradicting yourself.'”

He continued, “I want sports when I turn to ESPN and now all of a sudden the lines are getting blurred a little bit.”
