The NBA on ABC tanked this season

For all of the positive talk about the NBA in recent weeks, there’s one definitive blight on their resume this season – the league’s performance on ABC.

ESPN gives Britt McHenry a one week suspension

When the video was released of Britt McHenry berating a parking lot attendant, you immediately knew it was going to jeopardize her future at ESPN.  People get upset all the time.  They even might say mean things that they probably wouldn’t under normal circumstances.  But McHenry’s belittling, elitist, “I’m on television and you’re not” behavior […]
