ESPN has become a shell of its former self.
The network decided to go full “woke,” and fans have turned away in droves.
Now one anti-Trump has egg on his face after one statement.
ESPN has been trending to the left for years.
Personalities like former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka and World Series champion Curt Schilling were purged from the network after expressing conservative opinions.
Meanwhile, voices like far-left Jemele Hill were elevated.
Ironically, Hill wore out her welcome and parted ways after driving ratings for the primetime SportsCenter program into the ground.
“First Take” co-host Max Kellerman is another one of the super-woke personalities that dominates the network now.
He’s routinely taken shots and Donald Trump and any athletes who “normalize” him.
Kellerman was also one of the leaders within the sports media world pushing maximum COVID-19 hysteria.
Kellerman said the NFL and college football both had a 0% chance of completing their seasons.
With both sports on schedule to finish their seasons, Kellerman’s doom-and-gloom take did not age well.
Remember when @maxkellerman said the NFL had “zero percent chance to finish a season” and college football is “living in a dream world, never gonna happen.” That was super cute. @OldTakesExposed pic.twitter.com/PGcO1VsvYL

College football got through the season despite onerous COVID restrictions; only the title game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Ohio State* Buckeyes remains.
As for the NFL, the wildcard round of the playoffs is set to take place this weekend.
UFC owner Dana White took the sports media to task in an incredible video where he called out numerous reporters for slandering him and the sport for soldiering on in the face of COVID.
The corporate press has done everything in its power to spread fear and panic about the coronavirus.
Pro-lockdown officials in concert with the media have attempted to scare people inside indefinitely while their lives rapidly fall apart.
The economy has suffered potentially irreparable damage, and millions of lives have been destroyed.
Deaths of despair are on the rise, and screening for preventable disease is dangerously on the decline.
The American people have gotten bad information about the virus.
They’ve been told to “listen to the science,” but the science says lockdowns are not the answer.
The NBA and MLB both completed their seasons in the face of COVID, and the NBA’s 2021 season is already underway.
Many other sports are coming back, too.
It’s time to end the draconian lockdowns and let people resume their lives.
