During Tuesday’s “Pardon the Interruption” on ESPN2, co-host Tony Kornhieser reacted to Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III “liking” an Instagram post that criticized the Redskins front office shortly after Griffin lost his starting job to Kirk Cousins. Griffin refuted the report, saying an intern “liked” it. According to Kornheiser, Griffin, who has battled injuries his whole NFL career, as well as been called a “cornball brother” by former ESPN analyst Rob Parker and, most recently, making Griffin sit despite being cleared from a concussion, has done more to harm his career than any other athlete over the last three years. “I don’t believe in this particular case that he ‘liked’ it himself, but I can believe that he did because I have never seen a professional athlete do more to harm himself than Robert Griffin has done over the last three years in Washington,” stated Kornheiser. He added, “He pokes holes in his own boat all the time

You probably heard already that major league baseball has made a decision on whether or not it was going to reinstate Shoeless Joe Jackson,” said Mike Greenberg. “Shoeless Joe Jackson been dead since 1951 and there are multiple reports Major League baseball has denied his reinstatement. So, this is 60 years after he is dead; baseball seems to have not reinstated Shoeless

Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin,” after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump held a private meeting today with the head of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Javier Palomarez, the CEO said, “The private Donald was very different from the public Donald.” Palomarez  said, “He did talk to me candidly about his feeling about the Hispanic community and immigrants in general. He talked to me about some of his friends who are Hispanic who have had longstanding relationships with him. People whose names I won’t mention now. The reality of it is, the private Donald was very very different from the public Donald, and I was very–I think encouraged—by what I heard, but the proof is in the pudding.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
