Jemele Hill was recently named the 2018 Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists, and Fox & Friends tried to come for her. Surprise, surprise.

The folks on the Fox News show took multiple shots at Hill, namely saying that she’s jobless. “The bottom line is that she’s unemployed from hosting her own TV show,”  said guest Lawrence Jones. He ended his rant by saying, “There is no Jemele anymore.”


The fact is, Hill is very much employed as a senior correspondent and columnist for ESPN’s The Undefeated. Perhaps Fox producers didn’t even bother to read the entire NABJ press release? Or, worse, the station chose to misinform its audience because, why not?!

The Root’s sage advice: Don’t come for Hill. Especially if you don’t have your facts straight.
