Let’s call it a stupid answer to a stupid question.
TMZ Sports caught up with ESPN anchor Linda Cohn recently. They asked her if women know enough about male sports to be anything more than a sideline reporter (because, you know, sideline reporters pretty much just “gossip”). They tried citing what “some men think” as the basis for the question, but come on now.
Cohn starts off with a measured answer to a question that doesn’t deserve it, but then things fell off pretty quickly.
Quick, somebody tell Linda Cohn that Michelle Beadle is on her way back to ESPN. There’s no way she knew that and still took this shot, right? Even as a veteran of the network, Cohn will likely get talked to about these comments. ESPN tends to drop the hammer pretty quickly on in-fighting. Just ask Bill Simmons.
