1. ESPN is owned by The Walt Disney Company, a corporation that rakes in $52 Billion dollars every year and is only interested in making many more billions of dollars.
2. ESPN makes a habit of promoting the most powerful sports’ interests.
The latest example would be their blatant Duke/Louisville basketball commercials where they make a hero out of Duke’s creepy, cheating Grayson Allen. Does it matter to ESPN that Allen has been repeatedly kicking hitting opponents and is despised by most Americans who value sportsmanship?
No. ESPN wants to make this creep a hero.
3. The number one mantra of every good American should be: “Question Authority.” ESPN will never question authority because they are invested in the status quo.
See a bad call on the football field or on the ball court? ESPN announcers rarely question referees’ or officials’ calls. Questioning authority upsets the status quo. Even though all of America sees what is unfair, ESPN people are blind.
4. ESPN lies by omission.
Before Alabama woefully lost to Clemson in the national championship game, ESPN already crowned Alabama the champ, reporting countless stories and video feeds promoting the invulnerability of the Alabama football team.
Then after Clemson kicked Alabama’s butt in the championship game ESPN practically ignored the results and ignored Clemson’s victory.
Because ESPN owns the SEC Network where Alabama plays. It is in ESPN’s financial interest to promote Alabama.
Clemson? ESPN won’t make money off Clemson. So they ignore them.
Everyone’s up on fake news. How about “fake non-news?”
5. These “Takeaway” things are just plain silly so make up your own for this last one…
PS: Dan Dakich and Kirk Herbstreit are the 2 exceptions at ESPN: They are both very good at what they do.
