Dan Wolken Rips People Who Questioned Jim Harbaugh, Despite Hard Evidence Wolken Questioned Harbaugh, Too

America’s Least Favorite Sportswriter is at it again, proving that his insufferable ways aren’t limited to pushing his far-left political beliefs.

He is equally annoying and hypocritical and annoying when sticking to sports.

USA Today’s Dan Wolken proved the latter by aggressively calling out “people who talked seriously” about Michigan needing to fire Jim Harbaugh a year ago.

What Wolken failed to mention, of course, was that he himself was among those saying that Michigan should probably move on from Harbaugh. And he actually did it in a column for the dying print product for which he writes.

What he probably wasn’t counting on was being caught in the act. Usually, these type of hypocritical opinions that are stated as fact go unchecked. Not this time.

Truth is, Wolken and others who doubted whether Harbaugh was a fit at Michigan weren’t in any way, shape or form “insane” for doing so. He wasn’t getting the job done. Michigan was becoming an also-ran.

This Michigan season was a year that no one could see coming — perhaps not even Harbaugh himself. He deserves credit for the turnaround, no doubt, as the Wolverines are about to get a shot to play for the national title.

But all of that is almost beside the point. The moral of this story is that the media can’t be trusted. A national sportswriter is lambasting his readers for doing the very thing he did. And that’s the very definition of a hypocrite.

Woiken is often celebrated by his fellow pasty-white pencil-necked pals of the pen, but truth is, he is among the reasons so many people don’t trust the mainstream media. His latest hot take provides another good reason not to.
