What Happen To Free Speech

ESPN has announced it is cutting ties with Hank Williams Junior for his remarks about Hitler on the Fox and friends morning show. I didn't think the remarks were appropriate myself but not a fire able offense.

I guess ESPN is trying to be politically correct as usual but I did think we still had free speech in this country. I have noticed no one gets fired or condemn when remarks are made about the tea party or GOP candidates it seems like a one-way street. They don't seem to reprimand some of their commentators for on air remarks. Of course they are free to fire anybody they like but let us be on the lookout for remarks made by ESPN personnel in the future and see what the consequences are. Hank Williams can survive without ESPN and so can the rest of us. I will miss the opening song on Monday night football it really puts you in the spirit and nobody can do it like Hank Williams Junior. I don't know what they have planned for the new intro but for sure it will never be the same.
