It’s bad enough that sports network ESPN has gone “woke.”
Now their far-left personalities are failing upward on other platforms.
And one former anti-Trump ESPN host just inked a nauseating new deal.
ESPN has become a progressive network masquerading as a sports network.
On-air personalities constantly opine on political issues, and they always take the far-left position.
Former “SportsCenter” co-host Jemele Hill escalated the network’s pivot toward politics when she ranted and raved on Twitter about Donald Trump and all his followers being white supremacists.
Hill ignored the inconvenient fact that her own mother voted for Trump.
yes, my mother voted for trump. she’s been voting republican since post bill clinton

Now Hill and Cari Champion, former ESPN anchor and co-host of the pair’s Vice talk show, have signed a deal with new streaming service CNN+.
Hill said that the “CNN family is a perfect partner for us because they understand our chemistry and appreciate that our boldness is our strength,” and Champion added “I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the CNN family and share our brand of ‘speakeasy’ with the world.”
Hill parted ways with ESPN amid falling ratings on “SportsCenter” and a short-lived pivot away from politics.
But all of that changed after the death of George Floyd.
Political ESPN became supercharged.
After ESPN, Hill got a writing gig at The Atlantic, then eventually got the insufferable Vice show with Champion.
Their brand of politically-biased sports coverage will fit in well at fake news CNN.
Jemele Hill — who called Trump a white supremacist & said “the country simply loves white supremacy” following 2021 GOP wins in Virginia that included the election of the first Black woman (Winsome Sears) as Lt. Gov — has been hired by CNN+.
This is as on-brand as it gets…

Hill isn’t the only obnoxious leftist signing onto CNN+.
Former NBA player Rex Chapman, who endlessly tweets and retweets left-wing nonsense, also scored a show at the network.
Things started to turn south for Hill at ESPN when she urged major corporations to boycott the Dallas Cowboys because owner Jerry Jones said he did not support the anti-American anthem protests.
Hill failed to realize that the corporations working with the Cowboys were many of the same ones that paid her salary.
Ironically, Hill would fit in with the newer and “woker” version of ESPN.
Project Veritas recently did an exposé on ESPN and showed just how bad the left-wing bias has rotted the company.
