Those piercing professional eyes of one of our faves, Dana Loesch, have spotted another disparity in media treatment of commentary on the nation’s vacationer-in-chief and Republicans.
ESPN golf analyst and 12-time PGA Tour winner Paul Azinger put out a funny and biting tweet during this week of President Obama’s famous vacation on Martha’s Vineyard:
‘Facts: POTUS has played more golf this month than I have; I have created more jobs this month than he has.’
Friday, as Dana reports, ESPN ‘reminded’ Azinger that his tweet was inconsistent with the social media policy of the company (corporate parent: Disney).
And that ‘political commentary is best left to those in that field.’
Then Dana astutely wonders aloud what kind of warning verbal outlaw Kenny Mayne got for his twittered desire in June to wreak mechanical mayhem on a passing car, ramming it simply because it carried a Sarah Palin sticker. Presumably Mayne pulled over before tapping out his tweet.
