Sports network ESPN became too political, and the viewership suffered.
One of the main culprits for that backslide was race-baiting host Jemele Hill.
Now Hill, “The Atlantic,” just unleashed another racist rant.
Politics Before Sports
ESPN built an empire on sports news.
They saw sports junkies wanted a dedicated channel, and filled the void.
But in recent years, the network became more political.
ESPN named Caitlyn Jenner Female Athlete of the Year despite last competing athletically decades earlier (as Bruce Jenner).
They purged conservative personalities like Curt Schilling, Mike Ditka, and Britt McHenry.
They propped up leftist voices like Jemele Hill and Michael Smith.
Hill drew criticism when she called Donald Trump and his administration “white supremacists.”
Conservatives got the boot for far less, but Hill didn’t even get a slap on the wrist.
She didn’t even apologize.
Hill only received punishment after she encouraged people to boycott corporate sponsors who just so happened to be in business with her employer.
It’s not surprising a leftist doesn’t understand how commerce works.
Ombudsman Jim Brady pointed out the leftist bias at the network in his report.
He mentioned how some employees feared putting TVs in the break room on Fox News for fear of backlash.
ESPN fired Brady soon after his report on the network.
But the drop in viewership was undeniable.
People were rejecting the full embrace of leftist politics.
CEO John Skipper resigned his post after personal issues, and it’s a new day at the network.
ESPN realizes its mistake, and appears to be scaling back the politics.
Hill and ESPN parted ways.
There wasn’t a place for her in the new company paradigm.
Hill took her race-baiting to “The Atlantic” where she serves as a staff writer.
She recently wrote a terrible piece about the Brett Kavanaugh ordeal.
The Democrats were so intent on sinking Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, they were prepared to destroy due process.
Democrats are even lodging an ethics complaint against Justice Kavanaugh.
Even worse, Democrats saw nothing wrong in their tactics.
But the American people did.
Republican enthusiasm for the midterms soared.
In Hill’s column, she bemoaned a crowd of black men being sympathetic toward Kavanaugh.
On Tuesday night, I was in an auditorium with 100 black men in the city of Baltimore, when the subject pivoted to Brett Kavanaugh. I expected to hear frustration that the sexual-assault allegations against him had failed to derail his Supreme Court appointment. Instead, I encountered sympathy. One man stood up and asked, passionately, “What happened to due process?” He was met with a smattering of applause, and an array of head nods.
As is the case with all leftists, their ideology trumps all their principles.
Hill is radical on race, she couldn’t understand how black men would show support for another man being unfairly treated.
Other leftists were equally confounded by female support for Kavanaugh.
For the left, social justice and intersectionality and any other buzz word they create supersedes ethics.
Dividing the Country
Hill was not only surprised by the support for Kavanaugh, she was rankled by it.
This is the type of division the left fosters.
They want everyone divided by group identity.
But now they want people split on American principles.
Leftists want the country divided on the National Anthem.
They want people at odds over due process of law.
They want to undermine all social and cultural norms.
All in a shameless grab for power.
