ESPN Admits They Mistreat Conservatives, And It’s Killing Their Ratings

Now, ESPN’s public editor is admitting that the network has a problem. As Newsbusters reports, Jim Brady admitted, “One notion that virtually everyone I spoke to at ESPN dismisses is what some have perceived as unequal treatment of conservatives who make controversial statements vs. liberals who do the same.” He added:

ESPN is far from immune from the political fever that has afflicted so much of the country over the past year. Internally, there’s a feeling among many staffers — both liberal and conservative — that the company’s perceived move leftward has had a stifling effect on discourse inside the company and has affected its public-facing product. Consumers have sensed that same leftward movement, alienating some…. For most of its history, ESPN was viewed relatively apolitically. Its core focus was — and remains today, of course — sports.

If there was any tension internally, it didn’t manifest itself publicly. – READ MORE

    Conservative viewership is where they make their money. Nothing more now than a liberal race baiting propaganda machine of Obama that has been force fed to the populace for 8 years to divide by race.

    “ESPN is far from immune from the political fever that has afflicted so much of the country over the past year.” What? Immune? are you friggin joking? ESPN does everything they can to INJECT themselves into politics. I don’t watch ESPN unless there is a specific game I’m interested in. The rest is garbage with a leftist slant, and when I say slant, I’m being generous.
