It seems to me that a sportscaster should be able to comment on the media and the ability of any player.
Rush’s exact comment: “I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.”
Did he attack African Americans? No. He basically attacked the media and the NFL. While bluntly stating that McNabb’s ability is a bit overblown.
I think it quite disparaging when a television commentator, whether you like him or not, is not allowed to speak his mind without losing his job.
What happend to the first ammendment right of free speech? I abhor racism at any level, but quite honestly I find no racism in his statement. However, if it was a racist statement, let the TV fans decide if they want such things. His job should be determined by ratings and his ability to carry it off.
What are crazy Al Sharpton, Gov, Dean and the rest of the knee jerk liberals doing involved?
I am interested in what the rest of you think. Do you agree with me? If not, I still want to read your opinion as it is your right to express it. Just as it was Limbaugh’s right to express his!
