Hank Williams Jr. off MNF over Obama-Hitler remark – Sports Blog – CBS News

This faux pas is not surprising since it was associated with Fox News. Right wingers and the rest of America understand the philosophies of Fox News and its right wing agenda.

In a press release, ESPN said: “While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

Even Williams’ hosts were a bit taken aback by his performance. Just after the interview ended, anchor Gretchen Carlson said: “I just want to say we disavow any of those analogies he made.”

It is unclear whether ESPN’s decision to pull Williams’ telecast intro will apply to future broadcasts as well.
