Paul Azinger Missed The ESPN Social Media Memo

ESPN golf analyst Paul Azinger took a cheap shot at President Barack Obama Thursday via Twitter – the same day ESPN announced their revamped social networking policy:

Facts: Potus has played more golf this month than I have: I have created more jobs this month than he has: #Marthasvineyard

An ESPN spokesperson fired back Friday at Azinger about his tweet. “Paul’s tweet was not consistent with our social media policy, and he has been reminded that political commentary is best left to those in that field,” spokesman Andy Hall told USA Today in a statement.

Maybe Azinger can ask the folks at Deadspin for a recap of what he missed Thursday.
