Jemele Hill Shitcanned From Sportscenter 6

Best news I’ve heard all day. It has nothing to do with her calling Trump a “White Supremacist”. It has nothing to do with her race. It has nothing to do with her gender. She is the worst person I’ve ever seen on TV doing sports.

When I get home from work I’ll put on Highly Questionable, Around the Horn, and Pardon the Interruption as background for whatever I’m doing. I don’t actively watch them, but they are on. I have not watched 1 second of Sportscenter at 6. So how I can know that I hate Jemele when I haven’t watched a second of her programming? I can’t. It’s close minded and ignorant, but I’m 100% sure I’m right.

I went to YouTube and put in Jemele Hill and this video came up:

WHY IS SHE WEARING A TUPAC SHIRT! This type of shit is what I found in 2 seconds of searching. Do you ever see Kornheiser or Wilbon with a statement shirt? She’s radical in her opinions without earning the right to be radical. My issue is this, Sportscenter at 6 has to be one of the more watched Sportcenters, you’d think they’d put out their #1 ranked reporter and they chose Jemele. Who? The woman who co-hosted His and Hers. I have never heard of that show. What did she do in her background that got her position? Nothing. She got the position because ESPN was targeting an audience and thought she’d fit the bill even though was completely under-qualified for it. That’s why I don’t like her…without knowing any reason why I don’t like her. Can anyone add any further evidence to my state of mind or am I off base here?

    I agree with this take. Nothing about race, she just is not good. Give me Linda Cohn, Lindsay Czarniak, Lisa Kerney, etc. all day over her. I think it is because they take themselves less seriously and have some humor to them.

    I haven’t seen her on Sportscenter, but I used to watch His & Hers during lunch sometimes with Michael Smith. I thought they were pretty good. But I couldn’t say that it would translate to Sportscenter, since it’s a different show.

    I agree. I just don’t think she’s good. Too often does she feel… not genuine.

    I don’t mind the things she does or her general opinions on stuff (in fact, I agree with her completely in that video about players committing domestic violence or sexual assault and the leagues / owners brush it off if they’re a good player), but she just isn’t good on TV.

    Cari Champion hosts SC in the afternoon which I watch most days and she’s 10x better.
