Don't Politicize Sports and Entertainment

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Sports leagues like the NFL and liberal sports networks like ESPN have been completely at odds with what their viewers want, and their ratings reflect it. Perhaps they could stare at these poll results and heed this warning before they lose a large chunk of Americans for good.

If ESPN Continues to Pick Sides, So Will Fans

Tony Perkins, CNS News

New network president James Pitaro said "there is going to continue to be an intersection between sports and politics, and we’re going to continue to cover that. We’re going to cover it fairly and honestly. But we are focused on serving the sports fan.” The NBA and NCAA had a taste of that pain in ticket sales when it pulled out of states with common-sense privacy laws. If ESPN continues to pick sides, you can rest assured – so will fans.

Jemele Hill’s Tweets Are Bad, But Her ESPN Show Is Even Worse

Once the left wrapped itself fully in identity politics and convinced itself that America is inherently a white supremacist nation, patriotism and traditionalist ideas became indistinguishable from white supremacy. They are all of the same bitter origin and can have no redemption. And this view only serves to feed the tribalism of the current moment, and make it more permanent and ingrained in our society.

ESPN's Robert Lee Belly-Flop

Taking ESPN to the left can't look like a wise strategy, as the network's subscriber base has declined from a peak of 100 million households in 2011 to less than 87 million now. But other liberal networks have shown that their business imperatives are less important than audaciously demonstrating their "courage" and commitment to the "social justice warriors."

Confirmed: ESPN Is As Stupid As We Thought

Ben Domenech, The Federalist

It was a story too dumb to be real: reports yesterday emerged that ESPN had pulled an Asian announcer named Robert Lee off a University of Virginia college football game to avoid offending idiots. I have to admit, I didn’t think it could be true. How unbelievably stupid do you have to be to think that someone whose name is similar to a Confederate general – albeit absent the all-important middle initial – would lead to triggering and upset viewers if he called a Charlottesville-based sporting event?

Is a Populist Christian Movement Needed to Renew the Faith?

Just as millions of American voters picked up copies of the Constitution and began to ask out of touch elite politicians “where does it say you can do that,” we Christians should pick up our Bibles and ask out of touch elite church leaders, “where does it say same-sex marriage and transgenderism are OK”, and “where does the Bible endorse the heresy that claims God and Allah are the same”?

Politicizing Everything

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

We saw last fall how much damage Colin Kaepernick and the other entitled millionaires in the NFL did to that league and its TV ratings, and it’s only rational for MLB to recoil in horror from those stupid decisions and agree not to repeat them.

Lib Hack Shamelessly Justifies O's Lies

Matt Hadro,

Liberal ESPN columnist LZ Granderson justified Obama's repeated lie about ObamaCare, claiming that Americans knew he did it for their own good.
