Jon Stewart hires a new assistant at Dayton

  • Featured Story: Jason Whitlock's REAL TALK is back at Fox Sports. This time he covers Imus, Vivian Stringer, and Ronnie Thompson and Ball State. Some interesting stuff: He spent hours in a law office with the three Thompsons (Big John, Georgetown John, and Ball StateRonnie trying to convince him to write a story about the situation. Whitlock did not, but Wilborn (of PTI and Washington Post) wrote it. Whitlock is a Ball State alum and former football player. More revelations by Whitlock: Ronnie was dropping N-bombs (he had an all-black roster), and he randomly told his players "not to trust in (white people)". Whitlock's story is bound to create a big stir!
