Though ABC News says The View will check varied visitor hosts in its token opposition chair, the community doesn’t truly need somebody who will problem the principle solid. ABC is aware of the present’s everlasting hosts don’t have the depth for sturdy dialog. So a lot of the visitor rotation has to this point included shallow-thinking girls who secretly agree with Joy Behar. That doesn’t embody, nonetheless, Michele Tafoya, the sideline reporter for NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
On Wednesday, Tafoya pushed again on The View’s obsessive lauding of Colin Kaepernick’s Netflix particular, Colin in Black and White. Sara Haines started by praising Kaepernick for likening a profession within the NFL to slavery. “[That’s] not a far stretch,” Haines mentioned with authority. Tafoya, who in contrast to Haines, lined Kaepernick, shortly uncovered her:
“No one pressures them. They’re not forced to go into the NFL,” Tafoya mentioned.
“I’ve been covering the NFL for 25 years. Nobody forces these guys to play,” Tafoya provides. “I thought comparing it to the slave trade was a little rough. These guys enter willingly, they are the most well cared for people. Yes they play a hard sport, and every one of them, black, white, Latino, whoever’s playing the sport, will tell you how much they love it and they’re willing to do it and they make a damn good living.”
Wait, Tafoya, with such frequent sense, works within the sports activities media trade? How did she make it by way of the gate?
Sunny Hostin, after all, didn’t take Tafoya’s data effectively. So Hostin performed the race-card in hopes to close Tafoya up.
“He loves the sport but the White owners have prevented him from doing it. They’ve colluded and they have all the power to prevent him from doing the one thing that he loves. That’s the power dynamic,” Hostin says.
So now we all know Hostin is each confused and dishonest. Kaepernick doesn’t love soccer. He doesn’t need to play the sport. Rather, Kaepernick calculated he may make more cash enjoying a social activist powered by Nike. That beats enjoying backup to Blaine Gabbert, in spite of everything.
Before the industrial break, Tafoya corrected Hostin’s subsequent declare that Kaepernick “lost everything” or kneeling. But as Tafoya notes, Kaepernick conversely gained “a whole lot” between his Netflix particular and Nike endorsement offers.
Whether you agree along with her, Michele Tafoya brings a spark to The View. Now, Tafoya should return to NBC Sports along with her new colleague, Maria Taylor, who’s as near off-putting as Sunny Hostin is.
Imagine what Michele Tafoya would do to Stephen A. Smith on the talk desk…
