Leftist Sports Channel ESPN Is Tanking

ESPN
Fittingly, their logo has a red line through it.

The problem with shouting leftist lunacy on MSNBC is that the only people listening already agree with it. Far better to grind up the bitter pill of moonbattery and surreptitiously sprinkle in on people’s pizza. That way they will consume it unknowingly, allowing this corrosive ideology to insidiously take root.

That appears to be the strategy behind Disney’s left-wing sports channel ESPN. But they overdid it, which is one reason people aren’t watching anymore:

ESPN will have significant cost-cutting over the next four months on its talent side (people in front of the camera or audio/digital screen). Multiple sources said ESPN has been tasked with paring tens of millions of staff salary from its payroll, including staffers many viewers and readers will recognize. …

Last month Reuters reported Disney had a lower-than-expected quarterly revenue, hurt by the drop in advertising revenue at ESPN. In addition, ESPN continues to shed subscribers at an enhanced rate, down to 88.4 million households in Dec. 2016. That number was 100.002 million in Feb. 2011. …

ESPN has experienced significant layoffs over the last two years. In Oct. 2015 the company laid off roughly 300 employees, many who had spent their entire professional careers at ESPN.

According to Outkick the Coverage:

ESPN’s collapse is the biggest story in sports yet most still haven’t realized it.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of moonbats. For reasons to be delighted about ESPN’s demise, see here, here, here, here, and here.

Why ESPN’s business model isn’t working.

On a tip from Jester.

    Sports fans are conservative. or sometimes liberal…but 100% of fans don’t want to hear politics mixed in with their box scores.

    What?! I thought race, class, gender, sexual orientation and skin color mattered in throwing and catching a ball! 😉

  • Rotohammer

    Does ESPN even have enough white men left to fire to hit that payroll figure?

  • Rotohammer

    “ESPN paid the NFL $2 billion to make $285 million in ad revenue.”

    If our federal government were a sports channel, it would be ESPN. The difference is that ESPN can’t print money.

    I’ve grown weary watching the talking bobble head bunnies. Tight skirts and high heals aren’t a qualification for being a commentator.

    Good, let these jerks go earn a real living and pull their own weight for a change. Let them work in construction, warehousing, retail, auto, etc. The market has spoken and we’re not going to pay them to sit on their asses while sneering moonbat propaganda.
