Shafer on ESPN v Kornheiser-the suits could look in a mirror
- See this allegation of sexual harassment at ESPN, or this blowup, or this one, or this firing of a baseball analyst for having an affair with a young production assistant....
The ESPN brass is punishing Kornheiser for being Kornheiser when they should be punishing themselves for running their network like a high-school locker room.
- When ESPN frees Kornheiser from the penalty box—as it surely will soon—I'd like to see it prove its sincerity
by stuffing one of the network's executives in the box for a time-out of his own."
