NABJ ‘outraged’ demands meeting with ESPN, Disney

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) has requested a meeting with executives from the Walt Disney Corporation and ESPN while expressing “outrage” over a recent New York Times report that uncovered “a toxic ESPN culture that appears to promote bias.” 

On Sunday, the Times report detailed the fallout of a leaked video in which NBA anchor Rachel Nichols was recorded saying, in reference to colleague Maria Taylor, “if you need to give her more things to do because you are feeling pressure about your crappy longtime record on diversity – which, by the way, I know personally from the female side of it – like, go for it. Just find it somewhere else. You are not going to find it from me or taking my thing away.”
