ESPN used to be one of the most trusted brands on cable TV because they stuck to sports.
Then they began spreading liberal propaganda so many conservatives stopped watching.
And these new startling numbers about their memberships prove that they are failing fast.
ESPN is the worldwide leader in sports.
But that might not last very long.
ESPN’s reputation over the last few years diminished because of their left-leaning talking heads who trash President Trump every chance they get.

The network gleefully welcomed former President Barack Obama’s March Madness brackets.
They are not so kind to current President Trump. So Trump’s followers refused to watch ESPN.
That’s why the worldwide leader in sports is losing viewers fast.
It was just announced that ESPN lost 2 million domestic subscribers in 2018 alone.
But there’s a lot underneath these numbers that prove why this was even possible.
ESPN forces Trump’s name into sports stories everyday on the network.
However, these ESPN personalities do it at home too with social media.
For example, Jemele Hill infamously tweeted that Trump was a “white supremacist” who “largely surrounds himself with other white supremacists.”
But you’ll see Max Kellerman of First Take is hypercritical of President Trump all of the time.
He frequently goes off on a tangent that Trump’s administration is “not normal.”
It’s no wonder why ESPN lost so many subscribers.
Keep in mind that they are all domestic subscribers too.
And ESPN wasn’t the only Disney-owned company to lose subscribers.

The Disney Channel went from 92 million subscribers in 2017 to 89 million.
Their entire platform are bleeding subscribers.
To put this in perspective, Netflix has 117.6 million subscribers domestically.
But this is Disney.
They are the biggest movie studio in Hollywood.
So why did this happen?
Clay Travis of Fox Sports Radio slammed ESPN recently calling them the “social justice warrior network.”
He also said, “I’m not saying that ESPN should just stick to sports, but I am saying that if you decide to allow political opinions to flourish from your network’s stars that you shouldn’t neuter all conservative opinion and allow liberal political opinion to advance unchecked.”
And it’s true.
Jemele Hill and ESPN reached a buyout and now she works for The Atlantic.
Others left on their own accord.
One of them recently was Kate Fagan of Outside the Lines.
Another was Marcellus Wiley of SportsNation.
They both moved on and it’s likely because they don’t like where the network is headed.
That being in a downward spiral.
ESPN admitted they had gone overboard with their liberal propaganda too.
Firing former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling was a dead give away.
Another example was how they handled a Trump MAGA hat in Tom Brady’s locker.
They berated him about questions in his support for him as if it was evil.
And then Disney CEO Bob Iger said, “We believe that the best approach to doing well in a world that is disruptive, in a world that has far more digital distribution, is to have great content and tell great stories. And that includes ESPN, by the way.”
That’s another way of apologizing for the network’s anti-Trump bias.
