After Bill's scheduled interview with then-president Barack Obama who was fighting the nomination for the President against Hillary Clinton, was canceled, he stated ESPN as promise breakers.
But, the real issue came to the highlights, after he was suspended 2 weeks from the twitter for criticizing ESPN's Boston sports radio station WEEI's The Big Show. Later, in 2013 he again became the victim of suspension after he dishonored ESPN's First Take.
It's amazing to me that people get so worked up about First Take. Who cares? Just don't watch it. There are like 800 TV channels.
