“Boobs,” Travis confirmed. He had come on television to make a point…"

That he was an idiot.

Point taken.

The First Amendment relates to government - not your non-governmental employer.

Did anyone from the White House demand Schilling’s firing? No?

Then it’s not the same, jackass.

He got canned for sending dick pics to his female co-workers. In other words, yeah, the Fox News “boobs on the ground” guy was Eric Bolling.

Clay Travis is a boob—and not the kind he believes in.

Live by the First Amendment, die by the First Amendment.

It’s also not the same because it’s the opposite:

Schilling: posted hateful, demeaning, bigoted nonsense

Hill: objectively pointed out hateful, demeaning, bigoted nonsense

“First Amendment Absolutist”, try saying the N-word.

Was he dressed like that? Because, thats a train wreck waiting to happen.

At this stage of the news media game, why in hell would CNN have anyone from Fox (tv or radio) on for any type of serious discussion? This is a serious question. CNN, stop it, stop legitimizing those assholes. Their intention is to always make fools of you. If you’re not “fake news,” and I believe you’re not, then end the practice once and for all of legitimizing fake news. God damn, it’s not rocket science.

Wow, we really need to give everybody in America a forced civics primer. Like, the fundamentals.

The First Amendment guarantees your legal right to free speech. It guarantees that the government cannot put you in jail for dissent or for expressing an unpopular opinion.

What the First Amendment does not guarantee is that all of the individual people around you listening to your speech have to like it or accept it. It does not protect you from the cultural or personal consequences of your speech.

For that, you need some civility, some intelligence and some basic self-control. Which are all things that boobs like this guy don’t seem to have.

Don’t know why this guy’s comment is news. It’s just a another idiot acting like an idiot to get attention. Curt Schilling has a long track record on Twitter, social media and talk radio where he routinely supported far right themes, including conspiracies. Jemele Hill made 1 tweet. Getting rid of Schilling has been a blessing for MLB’s image btw. He was so political (on the far right of US politics) that he turned off a lot of POC and millennial fans. MLB hasn’t embraced its international and diverse fan base like the NBA. But in the last year, I’ve noticed a change for the better.

You know, to me, this story was just another example of how fully disassociated the white male Fox MAGA demographic has become from the 21st Century. In their world this was hilarious. Har har har he shocked the snowflake fake news [insert random misogynistic epithet here] with his un-PC talk! Har har har!

They don’t even see why it’s wrong. No more than all those people in Little Rock screaming at little kids just trying to go school saw what they were doing as wrong.

The guy is a putz. Of course he works for Fox Sports where infantile sexist misogyny pretty much is part of the job description.

I’m a First Amendment absolutist.

No you’re not, you’re a sexist fool and probably can’t even recite the 1st amendment that you pretend to understand.

“So I apologize for him, and that,” she said.

She shouldn’t have.

Always fun to watch cable news pretend what happened during a segment wasn’t EXACTLY what they hoped would happen.

Flawless execution. From the booking, to the performances of both the guest and host, all the way down to the blogs and our comments.

Great job everyone.

The weird thing is, you just know the current POTUS was nodding in agreement with boob-guy if he saw that clip.

What Schilling said is not equivalent to what Ms. Hill said. What she said is true.
