Funny, wasn't it a just a few weeks ago some here were denying there was any politics on ESPN?


I watch games on ESPN
Games
Take the baseball game last night
No politics.

Read the article.

ESPN said they know the political talk is going on.

Seriously, read the article. You ask for links and ignore them.

Because I can be a source
I watch ESPN. I hear no politics
Have you heard politics personally on ESPN?
I watch and I don't
How political was the baseball game last nite?
ROTFL
I watch sports to get away from politics

I do not waste time watching sports. I do not waste money on ESPN.

The point is the network has noticed politics is slipping thru, which you would have seen had you read the article.

My guess is you would miss most political comments except for maybe the most blatant.

I could care less if somebody at espn thinks politics is slipping through. Probabbly some right wing employee. I watched the game last nite. No politics. I can be a source because i watch.
This souce that watches games is stating that he does not hear politics.
You dont watch so you cant be a source so your opinion does not amount to much except using hearsay links

Actually you are not a very good source at all. You have an awful memory for any kind of history. You will flat out deny facts in front of you from a variety of sources. You ask for links yesterday then today say that links are "hearsay" and cannot be trusted.

Depends on the subject
If I consider myself an expert on the subject, then the link is meaningless :-)
I watch ESPN = expert. I hear and see no politics.
You don't watch ESPN = not an expert so you cant judge the validity of a link describing ESPN being political

You can post links saying the Grateful Dead sucked
To me, those links are meaningless because I am a Grateful Dead expert

I just read ESPN is now limiting the amount
of time a commentator can spend on
politics. Why is a sports channel discussing
politics, what does one have to do with
the other. It's ABC sneaking in their Leftie
views wherever they can.

"Officially, the broadcast network retains its own sports division; however, for all practical purposes, ABC's sports division has been merged into ESPN Inc."

Laff all you like, ESPN wants no political talk
unless it's connected to sports. ABC has to
stop sticking their fat Lib noses into everything.

"ESPN has issued new political and election guidelines for its employees that, while allowing for political discussion on the network’s platforms, recommend connecting those comments to sports whenever possible. The new policies also provide separate guidelines for ESPN staffers working on news and those engaging in commentary."

'The new rules come after years of fans and customers complaining that ESPN has become a bastion of left-wing views delivered at the expense of sports, and to the utter exclusion of any conservative ideas.'
