    In an official announcement on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, King said that the project, which he has dubbed Injustice Boycott, will aim to force the progressive cities to meet local activists’ demands regarding police brutality. And if those demands are not met within 43 days — by Martin Luther King Jr. Day — King says that he will activate Injustice Boycott supporters — more than 200,000 people, according to his estimate — to level a four-prong attack on commerce and government. King, who took a job as a justice columnist at The Daily News last year, said that the...

    A Donald Trump-hating Twitter user – who is too scared to reveal his true identity because he says he fears backlash from Trump supporters – is attempting to destroy a leading conservative news site with a coordinated campaign attacking its advertisers and claiming it’s “racist.” The anonymous Twitter user, known as Sleeping Giants, is attempting to take down Breitbart News. It takes screenshots of advertisements on Breitbart and then harasses companies that own the ads, demanding that they blacklist the news site. And several high-profile U.S. companies are taking the bait.

    Kellogg’s shares (NYSE: K) dropped 1.44% on Thursday, the day after accusations of child labor exploitation and the launch of Breitbart News’ #DumpKelloggs campaign brought the snack company’s value down 2%. Kellogg’s stock fell $1.04 to close at $70.96 per share. The combined two-day drop has been $2.66 per share, down 3.6% from $73.62 at the start of Wednesday trading.

In 2013, ESPN had over 99 million subscribers. Today, it has just under 89 million............ But this year they will miss out on somewhere around $800 million in revenue they would’ve otherwise earned if they still had 2013's subscriber numbers.

    BOSTON (CBS) — There are many reasons why the NFL’s ratings are down in 2016. You may be dismissive of the very idea that the backlash to the national anthem protests, sparked by the 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick, has played a role in the NFL’s TV ratings, which have dropped by about 12 percent year-over-year. To continue to dismiss that is to blatantly ignore legitimate data on the subject. A fresh poll from Seton Hall surveyed 841 adults across the U.S. Each respondent was asked to identify seven separate factors as a reason for the NFL ratings drop, allowing them to...

    ABC / CBS / NBC need to go. Turns out the NFL is key to their profits. Check out this story: The key worry here is the idea that the networks are dependent on the NFL and its huge ratings. If the NFL suddenly collapses or just regresses, those huge revenue streams that are driving the networks will start to slow. http://www.businessinsider.com/pacific-west-says-nfl-ratings-will-fall-2016-1 Along with displaying the absolute lack of respect shown to our nation and flag by players not standing for our national anthem, turns out key to putting these PRAVDA media centers out of business is just one click...

But by allowing Kaepernick, and other players who share his sentiments, to use NFL games as a venue to express these views, Goodell is tacitly endorsing...

Apparently, sports writers missed...
