ESPN seems determined to seal its own fate by alienating as many right leaning sports fans as possible. They have already lost a massive amount of viewers but instead of correcting course, they are doubling down.
They just promoted a far left guy whose political views are just what you’d expect.

ESPN’s Leadership Team of Far Left Ideologues Just Grew by One
Maybe it’s time ESPN just goes ahead and makes it official by registering as a political action committee. It should register under the title of LEFTSPIN and drop all pretention of honest reporting. The sports network is flagging in viewership while surging under the banner of left-ism. The latest evidence is the promotion of Connor Schell, a hardcore, Trump-hating Democrat, to the role of executive vice-president.
Schell will oversee television, print and online operations and will rank second in command at LEFTSPIN behind only John Skipper.
Schell joins the leadership team of Disney CEO Bob Iger, who has floated the idea of running for president and taking full advantage of the ESPN propaganda machine to do so. That should get the attention of the Federal Election Commission. Skipper is also recognized as a far Left ideologue.
On the night of the presidential election last fall, Schell nearly exhausted himself with angry tweets against Donald Trump. He was disgusted with Trump’s emergence as the victor and claimed that the president-elect oppresses minorities, women and gays.
Is ESPN going to keep this up until no one is watching at all?
