STEPHEN A KEEPS FAILING UPWARDS

June 25, 2010

 

STEPHEN A.SMITH

He was a failure as both a television and radio host on ESPN. He was also fired from his six-figure gig as a newspaper columnist wth the Philadelphia Inquirer before the union got him his job back. Currently, he’s an incredibly mediocre radio talk show host with Fox Sports (although, in fairness , at least he doesn’t get women he’s sleeping with on-air jobs as a “co-host” just to have sex with him. The same can’t be said for other hosts with that network.) Yet, Stephen A. Smith keeps getting better jobs.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Smith is being pursued as a late night talk show host by the pay cable network Showtime. Talks are said to be “serious” between both sides. Quite frankly, various media critics have not taken that news well.

STEPHEN A. SMITH: QUITE FRANKLY, HE’LL BE LUCKY TO GET ANOTHER JOB

The website The Big Lead is reporting that controversial broadcaster Stephen A. Smith will soon be departing ESPN. Smith’s contract with ESPN expires after the NBA playoffs. It will not be renewed.

It was not that long ago that Smith was a multimedia superstar. He had his own television show on ESPN, a radio gig and his columns ran in the Philadelphia Enquirer. However, following Mark Shapiro’s departure from ESPN, Smith’s tv show was cancelled. His star has been falling ever since. He was fired as a newspaper columnist in 2008 and his ESPN radio show was likewise dropped. Smith will be removed from shows like First Take and be completely off ESPN within six weeks.

For a minute I thought I was reading The Onion.

In a piece entitled,

 

“Why don’t black people play fantasy? Allow me to explain.”

 

Stephen A. Smith gives his reasons why only white men play fantasy football and baseball.

Statistics say 96% of the people who participate in fantasy sports are male. Of that 96%, whites make up 95%. That means that of the 30 million people who play in fantasy leagues, 27,360,000 are white men.

Talk about “Stuff That White People Like!” Fantasy sports could be the whitest activity in Western Civilization.
