Buzz Bissinger Wants You To Know There Are Worse Things Than “Chink In The Armor” That You Can Call Jeremy Lin
Here has to be the strangest “defense” of the ESPN “chink in the armor” incident to date. Sure, it’s not as if Buzz Bissinger was giving ESPN a pass, but to say that there are worse things they could have called Jeremy Lin… Yikes.
According to ESPN, they have “dismissed” the employee responsible for offensive and inappropriate Mobile headline regarding Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. They also suspended ESPN anchor Max Bretos (left) thirty days for his “chink in the armor” comment. See the complete statement, after the jump.
Is it possible that people just aren’t watching ESPN as much as they used too, and maybe they’re relying more and more on other (see: newer) gadgets to get their sports news? Because earlier in the week an ESPN anchor actually said the words “chink in the armor” when speaking about Jeremy Lin. And, really, no one seemed to notice.
