ESPN is a global cable and satellite sports television channel. Viewers can watch their favorite sports on the network. Although ESPN is a place where you can watch sports, they have become a liberal network which included their political ideology in their programs, especially in the last presidential election race. They want all their viewers and sports players to be against President Donald Trump.
ESPN is a sports network, a place where viewers can plug in to watch their favorite sport being played and to escape from everyday life. But in reality, ESPN has inserted their liberal ideology into almost all aspects of their programming in the last decade and particularly, in this last presidential election. Any athlete or team that joins in the anti-Trump rhetoric, ESPN vigorously reports it to further their liberal agenda.
Conservative 101 reported that this week, ESPN reporter Marc Spears without confirmation, stated that the NBA champion Golden State Warriors team would turn down a visit to the White House.
“The Warriors just put out a statement saying no decision has been made, but I talked to Draymond Green last night. He said he wasn’t going. David West said he wasn’t going,” he said. “And I also got a text from somebody else within the team that said they would be surprised if any of the players went.”
“Who knows when that date will be, but this has been a team that, you know, is pretty woke, especially their coach,” Spears added. “I would be shocked if he attended. He has been about as hard on the president as anybody.”
However, not all professional athletes would deny an invite from President Trump. Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins enthusiastically accepted an invite to go play golf with Trump at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminister, New Jersey. Cousins explained that he felt it was an honor to be asked to play golf with the president, and he could not turn it down.
“Great experience. I didn’t ever think that would happen,” Cousins said. “Had a good enough time that if there’s any former presidents in the D.C. area that want to give me a call, I’d love to meet them at one of the courses around here. I know lots of them are members at these courses and I’m not, so I’d love to get on and get to met them. Republican, Democrat, left, right, I’d love an invite.”
ESPN stands for Entertainment and Sports Programming Networks and they should stick to reporting on sports and leave the political agenda to other networks. After all, viewers plug in the sports network to watch sports and not politics.
