Why must sports outlets get into politics? ESPN has become the CNN of the sports world. Now Sports Illustrated is getting all “woke.”
From the Washington Examiner:
Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, was selected by Sports Illustrated to present an award honoring the first gymnast to publicly accuse former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of abuse.
Ford recorded a video announcing Rachael Denhollander, a lawyer and former gymnast, as the recipient of Sports Illustrated’s Inspiration of the Year award. The video marked Ford’s first public statement since she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation against Kavanaugh in September.
