ESPN Reporter Slams Hannity And Fox For Defending Abusive Coach


On this Sunday's Reliable Sources on CNN, ESPN senior writer Andy Katz was asked by host Howard Kurtz about Fox hosts Eric Bolling and Sean Hannity and their defense of the abusive Rutgers basketball coach last week and Katz was more than happy to give Kurtz an earful with what he thought of them.

KATZ: It's ridiculous. Okay, first of all, they were losing. So that tactic wasn't working, You can clearly motivate without physical contact, without slurs. I mean, it's been proven time and time again at all levels of sports. You do not have to go to that level.

You can position. You can adjust, you know, physically moving people in different sports, but you cannot, absolutely and we saw that with the assistant Jimmy Martelli. You cannot physically hit someone. You can't throw things at someone and you cannot... We're in a different era. You can't have those kind of homophobic slurs. You can't.
