ESPN suspends NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski after profane email (he wrote "F--- You") to Sen. Hawley. Looks like he'll be out for two weeks.

More deets:

The incident occurred after Hawley’s office sent a news release detailing a letter he planned to send NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, criticizing the league’s decision to limit messages players can wear on their uniforms to “pre-approved, social justice slogans” while “censoring support” for law enforcement and criticism of the Chinese Communist Party.

Hawley wrote in the letter to Silver that the league’s “free expression appears to stop at the edge of your corporate sponsors’ sensibilities.”

Wojnarowski, who is arguably ESPN’s most prominent reporter and breaks so much NBA news on Twitter that his messages have been dubbed “Woj Bombs,” apparently didn’t appreciate Hawley’s message.

I honestly don't know what this means for Woj's job though. No air time? He basically gathers inside reports and releases them on twitter... like how is that something that can be "suspended"? :shrug:

weird story, guess i can see it from a few angles. like you said he's a scoop guy so limiting air time doesn't do much.
