Forget the Facts: CBS Hammers ‘Bloody’ Redskins Name, Skips Native American Approval


[See NewsBusters for more.] The hacks at CBS This Morning on Monday jumped on the cancel culture bandwagon, hyping the effort to force the Washington Redskins to change their name. Reporter Chip Reid featured an ESPN host assailing the “bloody” nickname. NOWHERE in the entire segment was any mention that Native Americans have been repeatedly polled and overwhelmingly support the name. Reid featured Bill Rhoden of ESPN’s Undefeated to snarl: “The history of the name, there's nothing nice about it. It was never intended to be nice. It was a bloody nickname. It still is a bloody nickname. I think most people say we've got to move on.”
