Curt Schilling blasts CNN host on ESPN’s anti-conservative purges

Published

on

CNN host Michael Smerconish tried to corner former Red Sox reliever Curt Schilling on the issue of President Donald Trump’s calling out ESPN for its double-standard on “fireable offenses.”

Schilling, now a radio host, was fired by ESPN in 2016 for a Facebook post about transgender bathrooms, while Jemele Hill’s calling the president a “white supremacist” resulted in the network defending its decision to keep her on board.

“The problem is, for me,” Schilling said, “is that they openly support what I believe to be racist liberal agenda platforms while denying they do, which is kind of frustrating.”

When Smerconish accused Schilling of using a shared photo to “besmirch an entire class of individuals,” claiming “that’s why you got fired,” Schilling shot back.
