Last week, Jason Whitlock officially left his duties at ESPN's Page 2. On the way out, he made some harsh remarks about fellow ESPN columnists. Today, we find out from Whitlock himself that Jason will no longer be associated with ESPN in anyway. No more Sports Reporters and no more Pardon the Interruption. In the man's own words:
Jason Whitlock knew what he was doing when he made those comments about Scoop Jackson and Mike Lupica. I believe he intentionally burned that bridge, just for controversy's sake. He didn't tell us the "truth" in his Big Lead interview. He simply made ad hominem attacks on Lupica and Jackson.
If Whitlock had avoided the insults and stuck to legit criticisms, he would have come off more like an unsatisfied employee rather than someone who runs their mouth...well...to just run their mouth.
