Here's the confusing thing: The tweet that got ESPN's Jemele Hill suspended on Monday was far less provocative than the one for which she received no discipline last month — the one that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called a “fireable offense.” The “SportsCenter” anchor who remained on the air after calling President Trump a white supremacist has been benched for two weeks because she suggested fans who object to the ultimatum Cowboys owner Jerry Jones issued on Sunday (“if we are disrespecting the flag, then we won't play”) should boycott the team's advertisers. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/10/09/jemele-hill-got-leniency-from-espn-once-now-shes-suspended-for-two-weeks/?utm_term=.bdb17a6905f3
