ESPN's John Walsh responds to criticism of Colin Cowherd

How can an organization ultimately owned by Disney, a wholesome, family corporation, allow someone like Colin Cowherd to be one of its main voices? His opinions are thoughtless, callous, and often dripping with prejudice (racial prejudice instantly comes to mind). There has to be someone out there who expresses opinions in a more intelligent and thought provoking manner who would better represent ESPN. Maybe he gets good ratings, but please tell me ESPN's editorial decisions are made with more than ratings in mind.

John Walsh  (11:06 AM)
Colin has a voice we believe in. Sometimes his opinions are controversial. We encourage Colin to talk about whatever his biases might be. Sometimes Colin is provocative. Clearly, there is no place in our company for any racial prejudice
