    @newsnetworkmlb
    MLB Network has fired Ken Rosenthal after he criticized MLB commissioner Rob Manfred.

    Remember when there was freedom of speech ?
    I actually saw a painting once and that was a title in a series of four...
    By a guy named Rockwell, I think. Became the head of the American Nazi Party.
    Smoked a pipe.
    Go figure...

    I’m not taking MLB’s side here, but he was employed by MLB. Usually, if you publicly criticize the CEO of the company you work for, you don’t last long in that position. It would be no different if you publicly criticized the CEO of Google and you were an employee of Google.

    I am always amazed by people thinking free speech equates to continued employment. They are not the same.

    Next time, Ken should probably work for a company where journalism is the main source of revenue, not the game itself. Something tells me this was all calculated by Ken and he did so with eyes wide open.

    if he did so as an attempt to help get manfred out, then he should be lauded as a hero

    He knew he would be hired by a real journalistic sports entity. He really has nothing to lose.

    That’s why you folks get so bitter. You ask for that which won’t ever happen.

    I’m not sure if you ran a company, you would tolerate someone bad mouthing you in public and then keeping him employed. That will get out of hand really quickly.

    I'm not bitter about it, just sad.
    It's not bitterness because you say it is...and the " you folks" reference/usage is very telling, imo. Some people are amazed that free speech doesn't " guarantee" keeping your job ( your words) , but the antithesis of it....the guarantee of losing it.
    As in your world.

    All Hail the Bow Tie.
    Not to mention what a scumbag Manfred is.
    " Running the company" is a biiiig stretch...more like a puppet for the fat cats.

    In another life I used to be a teamster.
    For UPS.
    Sure it's the USPS which actually runs the show.
    Either way... I'm not sure you know whose boss.
    The boss is not the guy behind the shield.
    It's the front and center of the shield itself.
    That's the boss.
    Only one you don't ever bad mouth.
    Specially if your uniform doesn't get dirty.

    Well bad mouthing the wrong guy as a member of the teamsters will end up with you in the end zone of some football stadium. There’s your freedom of speech for you.

    Walking in lock step with the PC cunts in power and cowering in fear about saying what you believe in is reminiscent of just a few other dark chapters in history, too. Just a few.
    And Hoffa was as much a criminal as those who had him whacked...apples and oranges.

    Myths exist because people perpetuate them which causes hearers to believe and fear them.

    Your logic is no good even if we go with the teamsters being the mob.
    The mob is a cult.
    And you can't compare the motivations of a cultist with that of a citizen, villager or peasant.
    In regular society you should bee able to speak truth to power without power exercising force.
    Force of any kind is abuse of power in response to truth.

    If the response to freedom is force then you know it's a trick and you been eating the treat.

    Ummm….dude, say anything you want. You’re missing the point. Don’t always expect to keep your employment when you do.

    I respect Ken for what he did, but even he would probably agree that he didn’t expect to get off Scott free.

    It’s more admirable that someone knows the consequences of speaking their minds, and says what they mean anyway, using their own names, and putting their livelihoods on the line.

    The difference between Rosenthal and Manfred is that Rosenthal actually likes the sport of baseball. I'm sure Ken was well aware of the repercussions of going against the clown but he didn't give a shit because he's beyond frustrated with the current state of the sport and knew he would have the backing of the entire baseball community that despises Manfred.
