Fired ESPN reporter thinks being ‘openly conservative’ could have gotten her axed

Amid a growing realization by many that the sports network ESPN is a decidedly left-leaning operation, fired sports reporter Britt McHenry just threw gasoline on that fire.

In responding to a tweet Monday from Clay Travis of “Outkick the Coverage” about the network’s liberal leaning, McHenry said: “I mean I’ve been openly Conservative… look how that ended up…”

The unemployed sports reporter would soon delete the tweet — perhaps wanting to avoid scaring off a future employer — but a screen grab can be seen below, courtesy of  TheBigLead.com.

McHenry, who posted a photo of herself and Republican Speaker Paul Ryan online back in December, before deleting it, was one of approximately 100 employees laid off by ESPN earlier this spring, a move that was largely attributed to budgetary reasons.

But the financial squeeze may be a result of the network’s liberal views, based on an observation from venerable “SportsCenter” anchor Linda Cohn, who reportedly agreed with a radio host who questioned whether ESPN’s politics was hurting ratings, which affects its capacity to pay its employees’ salaries, according to The New York Post.

And all along, we thought Chris Berman and Co. were just biased against the Dallas Cowboys.
