When you buy steak you buy bones when you buy land you buy stones. People in the show business industry know going in that there are some fantastic perks that go along with the job. However, they do come with a price. If Ms Hill wants to do political commentary she should do like Keith Olbermann and resign from ESPN and pursue jobs in that industry.

As for ESPN, current management has that placed so messed up you don't need to boycott them. Currently they have two shows worth listening to. Mike and Mike and on Saturday Mornings Dory and Mel. Other than those two shows the only decent hosts they have are Booger MacFarland but he is mostly a fill in and Stephen A Smith whose time slot always seems to be changing.

Nonsense. She should hang on as long as she can. Just like Keith did with MSNBC, ESPN, Current TV and now with GQ. This is how you get your name out their--it's called marketing one's own brand.
