Spike Lee Hijacks CNN/NFL Special: Politics Must Be in Sports Due to Country’s Racist History


See more in the cross-post on the NewsBusters blog.

Like many of CNN’s town halls, Wednesday night’s NFL special featured multiple perspectives and balanced questioning, but the goodwill and dialogue was degraded by liberal filmmaker Spike Lee’s intolerant outbursts. 

Chief among them was Lee’s insistence that politics cannot be avoided in sports (and thus must be mixed) because of the country’s racist history and “genocide of Native Americans and slavery” plus dismissing concerns about NFL protests raised by a Gold Star family.
