Will ESPN Get Backlash, Hank Jr. Off ESPN


ESPN yanks Hank for comparing Obama to Hitler - On Media -

October 03, 2011 Categories: Barack Obama ESPN yanks Hank for comparing Obama to Hitler Hank Williams Jr., the voice famous asking millions of football fans whether they’re ready for some football, has been pulled from tonight’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football” over a comment he made on Fox News this morning. Williams, who sings the lead-in song to the game each week, criticized the president for his golf summit with House Speaker John Boehner this summer. “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams told “Fox & Friends.” USA Today, among others, picked up the quote, speculating on whether the comparison would get Williams booted from the broadcast.

I can see a backlash coming like before. What will ESPN do when the ratings fall?
