Sports have become absurdly “woke” over the past few years.
It’s only gotten worse in light of the Wuhan virus media hysteria.
But one pro-Trump sports owner destroyed the media in one video.
UFC owner Dana White built a sports empire entirely from the ground up.
Not many people believed in him, but Donald Trump did, which is why White and Trump remain friends to this day.
And now they have a common enemy: the corporate press.
When White announced that the UFC would continue its events in the wake of the coronavirus, he was skewered by the media.
But White hit back hard with a video that exposed the over-the-top fear-mongering that’s taken place in media over the past ten months:
As we roll into 2021, I just wanted to remind everyone there’s ALWAYS a solution to every problem! So, cut through all the bullshit, and don’t let these people that don’t matter tell you how to live your life. pic.twitter.com/HPMbtojjJx

White’s takedown of the media is delicious.
He was able to grow his business and keep his entire staff employed despite a global pandemic.
The most insightful moment of the video occurred when White said:
“The media are not in the news business. They are in the clickbait business. They think negativity sells and gets clicks. So, that’s what they deliver. Negativity is their product. But I’m not going to let that stop us.”
White is 100% correct, and Donald Trump is proof of that.
Prior to Trump, the news business was on the brink of collapse.
But Trump drove clicks, subscriptions, and advertising revenue.
The corporate press turned into “Orange Man Bad” media.
Sports media is obnoxiously “woke” as well.
In addition to the press smearing White mercilessly, the coronavirus fear-mongers tried to stop all sports from being played.
If not for the intervention of a handful of college football stars, Trump, and a few other sports proponents in the media, the college football season would not have happened.
The Big 10 canceled its season, and the PAC-12 followed suit.
However, the SEC and ACC held firm, and the Big XII joined in to announce they were playing.
Instead of cancelation, college football fans were able to tune in during the spring, and the playoffs are set to begin on during the holidays.
White chose to be a problem solver instead of a doom-and-gloomer.
The so-called mainstream media are filled with them, and too many Americans were eager to get behind their defeatist message.
Luckily, White defied the naysayers and built on his successful business, much to the delight of the fans.
