An Open Letter to the Selectively Outraged Hypocrites of the Year, Mike and Mike in the Morning

MikeandMike@ESPNRADIO.com

Dear Mike and Mike,

You two sure were outraged when Don Imus referred to the Rutgers basketball team as "nappy-headed hos." In fact, you two were so upset by these comments that you even brought the Rutgers' head coach, Vivian Stringer, on to your show to discuss the issue.

And, of course, you two were again selectively outraged when Kelly Tilghman joked that young golfers might want to lynch Tiger Woods.

Your network fired Rush Limbaugh for saying Donovan McNabb was "overrated" and you two have both criticized Limbaugh's remarks.

Mel Gibson has received a great deal of criticism from you two.

So what happens when the two of you, in person, witness a famous sports personality bash an entire religion and let loose with a "F*** Jesus." What happens?

Did you two immediately go on the air and bash this person? Did you two immediately demand that she be fired? Did you two even report on the story at all?

Well of course not! She works for your station - ESPN. ESPN - the station that goes 24/7 when an athlete like Michael Richardson calls someone a "homo."

You two phonies were there when Dana Richardson said "F*** Jesus." Why the slience? You two, who are so outraged at any other slip of the tongue, have been mute about you cohort's outragous statements.

And this is not the only issue.

ESPN, and particularly your own show, has spent years talking about Barry Bonds and steroids. Your show spends almost an hour every day talking about Roger Clemens and steroids.

So what happens when Mike Golic admits on the here that he himself has used steroids? Mike Greenberg immediately changes the subject.

As reported by the Awful Announcing Blogspot:

I'm almost enraged that Greenberg doesn't even flinch when this is said. This is sports reporting at its worst. Your longtime partner is admitting to using steroids on National airwaves, and the topic is completely glossed over. How does this happen?

For as much time and effort that ESPN puts into reporting on Steroids how would they not tap into a resource that's admitting on-air that he did them.....WHILE STILL PLAYING!!! ESPN has had stories on the issue from acquiring performance enhancing drugs all the way to how they react with your body (and everything in between). I'll try to get the audio up later today, but am I that off-base on this one? Doesn't this seem the height of hypocrisy? I mean both of the Mikes completely bashed Barry Bonds for 3 months straight, but this isn't even talked about?!?!?

Ridiculous.

Show some integrity and report the Dana Jacobson story.
