ESPN has lost over 10M subscribers over the last few years, many stating their liberal bias as the reason they left.

Hell, ESPN did their own research poll a few months ago to quash that myth, came back that 63% of the people that felt they were biased, felt they were biased to the left. In their press release on it, they only mentioned the 30% that said they were conservative, and when asked why the 63% wasn't mentioned, they said they wanted to keep the press release short.

I think the majority of people that feel the way they do, feel that way due to Stephen A. Smith. He constantly harps on black this, black that, if he were white, he'd get this and that. They keep him on constantly.

Then, there is the whole Jessica Mendoza debacle. I don't comment on that one, except in the company of a select group of people.

That said, I don't watch a ton of sports on tv. If I want to see a game, I go to it.

Everything has become politicized. You can't sit down and watch Sports Center, or anything really, without catching political undertones. Just the world we live in, I suppose.

That said, I'm not particularly right, or left leaning. I tend to be fiscally conservative, socially left leaning.

Leaked memo from ESPN president blames Robert Lee hoopla on 'someone with a personal agenda'

ESPN president John Skipper sent a memo to staff Wednesday to respond to criticism that came after the network's decision to remove a football announcer named Robert Lee was from an assignment at the University of Virginia because of his name.

The move was made in the wake of the recent protests in Charlottesville, but conservative commentators criticized ESPN for what they deemed political correctness gone awry, in part because Lee is Asian-American.

Clay Travis of the sports website Outkick the Coverage broke the news Tuesday in an article with the headline "MSESPN Pulls Asian Announcer Named Robert Lee Off UVa Game To Avoid Offending Idiots." "MSESPN" is a reference to what critics view as ESPN's liberal bias along the same lines of MSNBC.

A statement from an anonymous ESPN executive said the decision was simply made to avoid Lee becoming the subject of "memes and jokes and who knows what else."

Skipper went further in explaining the decision, saying it was made by a production staff outside of Bristol, that Lee had expressed concern with the assignment, and blaming the hoopla over the decision on 'someone with a personal agenda.'"

Here is the memo, via Brian Stelter of CNN:

"Given the amount of media attention being generated by one of the countless, routine decisions our local production teams make every day, I wanted to make sure you have the facts. There was never any concern - by anyone, at any level - that Robert Lee's name would offend anyone watching the Charlottesville game.
"Among our Charlotte production staff there was a question as to whether - in these divisive times - Robert's assignment might create a distraction, or even worse, expose him to social hectoring and trolling. Since Robert was their primary concern, they consulted with him directly. He expressed some personal trepidation about the assignment and, when offered the chance to do the Youngstown State/Pitt game instead, opted for that game - in part because he lives in Albany and would be able to get home to his family on Saturday evening.

Sorry. It was kind of sort of his call.

The Confederate Air Force did the same, but 15+ years ago, to cries of political correctness run amok. Nobody seems to care now.

How about that Arpaio pardon? Someone convicted of violating the principles of the Constitution, with a history of racist policies and of degrading treatment toward prisoners. Ouch.

That one is a no brainer. Chump decided to send a message that as first Emir of these disunited sates, he and his buds can do whatever they want - or what he wants and he has the power of all kings and dictators to do whatever he wants.  He is above teh law.  He is such a winner that maybe he thinks he is a god.

Approve or disapprove of Sheriff Joe, he was convicted in a court of law and has the right to appeal. At this stage he has not even been sentenced yet. So for El Preidente to step in now and pardon him seems to be completely inappropriate and is a combination of political stunt and to send a warning that he and anyone he likes is above the law. Sad.  Very sad.

In a few short months the US has gone from being seen by many as a flawed but generally OK country that leads from the front, to being seen as a petty, failing dictatorship.

There have been a few books and articles written about fallen empires and how the end for the US as a major power is inevitable.  I doubt any of those authors saw it coming so fast.  Sessions and Trump now want to make it into a military state and want to give police forces even more military equipment so they can rigidly enforce the law on anyone that gets out of line. 

Not a good time to be not rich or not white.  Of course over time as the economy falters and civil unrest grows, those billionaire buddies he is trying to impress will be less happy too, so I guess in the end everyone loses out to some degree. That sounds more like a Bannon plan.
