ESPN is under fire. On Tuesday, it was reported that the sports television channel yanked an Asian-American announcer named Robert Lee from a college-football broadcast in Charlottesville, Virginia, where violence erupted ten days before, supposedly over the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis broke the news. Travis accused ESPN of desperately trying to avoid, "offending left-wing idiots." Sports writer Robert Silverman has written about the controversy for the Daily Beast in the article "Clay Travis The Alex Jones of Sports."
