She was suspended for a brief period for making this statement in an interview in April 2017 ...
Hmm, I thought I remembered hearing she was fired. I almost never watch ESPN anymore, but when I do, I never see or hear about her.

Nevertheless, everything else I said stands. All she did was allude to the fact that bringing politics into sports was hurting the network, and they "disciplined" her for that, while Jemele Hill was ranting like a mental patient and only after multiple occurrences did they finally give her a tiny slap on the wrist.

Yes. That's what the article that I linked was about. I think Cohn's age has shifted her from front line SportsCenter type settings, yet she still has a following. Hill does too, apparently, but for non-sports related reasons.

Yeah, I know that's what the article was about, I'm just stating that even thought she wasn't fired, the fact remains that they did indeed discipline her for the reasons I had previously mentioned. And it clearly shows the double standard they have over there.

ESPN is dying a slow death.
