ESPN publicly admitted that their Left-wing political bias has cost them subscribers.
With college football season starting and the NFL just days away from kickoff, there is a lot to talk about in sports.
But ESPN ignored all that and had sports fans scratching their heads with this “politically correct” frontpage story.
ESPN has been on life support ever since they decided to shove progressive politics down people’s throats.
They’ve been forced to fire anchors who called President Trump racist, constantly peddle the so-called “wage gap” myth in female sports, and side with national anthem kneelers.
Now, ESPN just published a frontpage fluff piece on an NFL linebacker opening up about being bisexual.
Ryan Russell is a journeyman lineman who played for the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being cut by the Buffalo Bills prior to the start of the 2018 season.
Now he’s turning to the media to help him stage a comeback.
Russell opened up about his “truth” to ESPN:
But for all the encouraging feelings about the visit, I do have one strong regret that has inspired me to make a promise to myself: This is the last time I will ever interview for a job as anything other than my full self. Out of love, admiration and respect, I want the next team to sign me valuing me for what I do and knowing who I truly am.
Have I lied to teammates, coaches, trainers, front-office executives and fans about who I am? Not exactly. But withholding information is a form of deceit. And I want the next part of my career — and life — steeped in trust and honesty. During the season you spend more time with your team than with your own family; truth and honesty are the cornerstones of a winning culture. My truth is that I’m a talented football player, a damn good writer, a loving son, an overbearing brother, a caring friend, a loyal lover, and a bisexual man.
Today, I have two goals: returning to the NFL, and living my life openly. I want to live my dream of playing the game I’ve worked my whole life to play, and being open about the person I’ve always been.
The Left-wing hacks at ESPN can think of no other storyline days before the NFL season than to peddle this LGBT storyline.
It failed when Sports Illustrated put Michael Sam, the first openly homosexual NFL player, on their cover.
Sam was out of the league before playing in a game.
If Russell was good enough, he would be on an NFL team.
But ESPN believes they can use their clout to force sports teams to sign LGBT players just to cater to their Left-wing bias, regardless of whether they earn a spot on the roster.
Do you think ESPN cares more about pushing “politically correct” nonsense than reporting on sports?
