Does ESPN even try to hide their liberal bias anymore?
You would think the definitive “worldwide leader in sports” would be careful about protecting their brand and image because they could lose the esteemed title if they don’t.
But this latest ESPN hire proves they don’t care.
First Take’s liberal host, Max Kellerman, could be considered one of the worst liberal analysts on the network for infusing his hatred of the Trump administration anytime his name is brought up.
Another liberal analyst, Jemele Hill, became nationally recognized for her controversial statements towards Trump last year when she called him a “white supremacist,” on Twitter.
ESPN rightfully suspended her from the show,SC The Six, for two weeks, and she eventually resigned from her post and went to write for an ESPN subsidiary company, The Undefeated, instead.
In attempt to even the playing field, ESPN did hire conservative sports analyst, Will Cain, to combat the liberal nonsense spewed by people like Max Kellerman and Jemele Hill.
He became so popular in his debates with Kellerman on First Take that the network gave him his own show on ESPN News and ESPN radio from 3pm-6pm, which is also skyrocketing in popularity.
It seemed like a step in the right direction—until they hired one of the most arrogant liberal talking heads on the planet.
Keith Olbermann previously worked at ESPN and spent the first 20 years of his career as a sports “journalist.” But then he became one of the most insufferable analysts on MSNBC with his show Countdown with Keith Olbermann where he’d moan about conservatism on a nightly basis.
And now he’s officially back at ESPN.
It was a surprising move by the worldwide leader in sports to take on such a controversial liberal figure who makes Bill Maher look like a conservative most nights.
He even just officially wrote a book entitled “Trump is F—king Crazy.”
It’s understandable that ESPN would want to have a balance of conservative and liberal personalities discussing sports – even discounting the idea that politics and sports should remain separate.
But Olbermann’s book is insanely hateful.
To put it in perspective, conservative anchor Will Cain never wrote a book about how much he detested President Obama – and if he had, the network surely wouldn’t have hired him.
But that’s not all.
Olbermann once tweeted this nonsense in response to a tweet Ivanka made celebrating her father.
Then tell your racist, white supremacist, neo-nazi father to get the fuck out of our society. https://t.co/uRKqME8n2R

Olbermann’s tweet is so hateful and yet ESPN hired him anyway.
There are obvious double standards going on here and it’s another slap in the face to Americans who just wants to enjoy sports without a liberal agenda being shoved down their throat.
