ESPN’s Rachel Nichols Falls Victim to Cancel Culture

Rachel Nichols made national headlines earlier this year over the recording of a privately taped conversation.

In that conversation, she was upset that she was put on the backburner to further the career of a fellow female journalist who was also African American.

The move seemed as though it was being done to allow ESPN to look more diverse, and Nichols’ comments at the time were twisted to make her out to be a racist, and now she is out of a job.

Not Woke Enough

To be clear, at least in my opinion, Nichols never did anything wrong here.

She has been an exceptional on-air personality for ESPN as both a host and sideline reporter (at least until she went overboard pushing the social justice narrative).

She was all for diversity, but she did not want that diversity to come at her expense.

Had Nichols been failing at her job, it would have been different, but she was hosting one of the more popular shows on ESPN as well as loved by fans for her in-game reporting.

She remained popular even though she was ramming the new agenda of the NBA down everyone’s throats at every opportunity (one of the reasons I no longer watch the network).

Then the conversation was leaked, and she was made out to be a racist.

Nichols immediately apologized, clarifying her words (again, she NEVER said anything racist).

At the time, we reported on that story and I noted that Nichols only had one month left on her contract and I thought it was doubtful she would get it renewed.

My prediction came true, as noted by Outkick’s Clay Travis…

As Travis stated, “The lesson is clear: you’re either woke or you’re fired. You better keep your mouth shut unless you agree with far left-wing politics infiltrating sports.”

He actually got that wrong, though.

You not only have to be woke, but you can also never make a slip because even one small comment deemed to be out of line will get you canned, even when you are one of the biggest advocates of the woke movement permeating sports right now.

Yipes 😬

“When EU leaders tackled Biden over high U.S. gas prices at the G20 meeting in Bali last week, the American president simply seemed unaware of the issue, according to the senior official…”

Two days ago, Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden is "directly involved" in negotiations to avert a massive rail strike.

Today, Biden said, "I have not directly engaged yet."
