In the world of sports reporting, there is no longer any doubt that politics are bad for business, yet ESPN can’t seem to divorce themselves from the democrats.
The “worldwide leader in sports” has long been playing politics on their network, joining the massive, futile “resistance” to President Trump that has been spearheaded by a number of liberal lunatics.
Beginning with their unethical firing of baseball legend Curt Schilling over his personal political beliefs, the network has turned into a harbinger of media malfeasance to come. [Actually – Rush Limbaugh was the first to get the ax.]
Not only did ESPN give an exorbitant amount of airtime to anti-American protests by Colin Kaepernick and others, but they have been vocal opponents of just about every conservative stance in the United States over the course of the last year.
Now, as Americans continue to tune out of politically-charged sports coverage with a vengeance, ESPN is finding themselves in dire financial straits. This is leading to yet another round of massive layoffs within the company.
“More bad news could be on the horizon for ESPN. Staffers at the Worldwide Leader in Sports are bracing for another possible round of layoffs late this year, multiple sources tell Sporting News.
