    The failing sports network ESPN, which is quickly losing its audience thanks to its overtly liberal pandering, has published a poetry tribute to a convicted cop killer who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list. Just a day before the network laid off 100 employees, including most of its on-air talent, it published five poems about feminism and political resistance on its website’s section aimed at women. This was first noticed by The Federalist.

    ESPN will cut more than 100 employees today, Yahoo Finance has learned. That number is much bigger than the 40-50 that was initially reported. ESPN aims to notify all of the people today, if it can do so. It has been widely reported for weeks that big cuts are coming to ESPN—so widely reported, and dissected, and gossiped about, in fact, that ESPN moved up its schedule and is notifying people earlier than it originally planned. The 100 people getting cut are all “on-air talent,” a label ESPN uses for TV personalities, radio hosts, and writers who regularly appear on...

    The MSNBC of sports ESPN used to be the crown jewel in the Disney Corporation’s portfolio. It was thought to be the network cable subscribers couldn’t - and wouldn’t - live without, so it was a perennial cash-cow. Even if the movies, toys, and theme parks underperformed, ESPN could be counted on to generate mountains of Mouse-moolah. Maybe that’s why Keith Olbermann’s twice-former network thought infusing sports coverage with ever-increasing levels of left-wing political content was a good move. After all, if the ratings are bulletproof, why not let the biased, poorly-informed, political opinions fly?

    Spencer's tweets became a troubling sideshow to the dramatic win. Appalled fans tweeted that he had sucked the joy from the Patriots’ victory. By the next morning, Boston Magazine, the New York Daily News, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and others ran items chronicling Spencer’s tweets. For Spencer, the rampant denunciations only added to his pleasure. “It was like the alt-right won the Super Bowl,” Spencer told me recently.

    Everything is political to the overly sensitive mind of today’s leftist. When the Atlanta Braves unfurled a gigantic flag for the playing of the national anthem, it prompted an ultra sensitive member of the partisan media and his Twitter followers to express a whole host of ridiculous claims. In a Twitter post this weekend, NBC baseball writer Craig Calcaterra complained that the presentation of Old Glory evoked overly political tones. He and his like-minded comrades used the occasion to attack the flag, the military, President Trump, conservatives and the singing of God Bless America: Will you keep politics out of...

    This week we have another example of an article that wouldn't have been written without Sports Illustrated and its writer's desire to keep foisting Colin Kaepernick's offensive propaganda on a weary readership. Waaaay towards the end of the article the hacktivist reporter, one Michael Rosenberg, notes that there are many reasons Kaepernick has not been signed other than Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the Star Spangled Banner. I searched far and wide for the SI article on why Jay Cutler (a slightly better QB over the past three years than Kaepernick) has yet to be signed by anyone this offseason....

    At a time when even liberals think that federal Title IX rules have gone too far in sexual harassment cases, college administrators who help to enforce them remain oblivious to their excesses. The Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA) published their "Playbook," per a recent press release. ATIXA heralded their "Playbook" as a "120-page book developed by nationally-recognized experts and field-leading practitioners as a comprehensive guide to ensure that the resolution of sexual misconduct allegations on college campuses is done right." What is the subtitle? "Best Practices for the Post-Regulatory Era." ATIXA claimed that the subtitle was chosen "to highlight...

    If this yield sign didn’t already cause drivers to slow down, the man duct-taped to the sign certainly did. Confused Houston drivers did a double-take on Tuesday when they spotted someone dangling about a foot off the ground hugging a yield sign. So confused, in fact, they called the cops. But as officers from the Houston Police Department arrived at the scene, another man — with a knife in hand — was already on his way to help. “Drop the knife or I’ll Tase you,” one officer shouted, according to CBS affiliate KHOU. The man quickly dropped it, explaining to...

    An Arkansas House committee advanced a measure Tuesday to exempt college sporting events from a state law allowing guns after the Southeastern Conference appealed for guns to be banned from facilities such as football stadiums. Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed the new state law last week allowing concealed handguns at colleges, government buildings, some bars and even the State Capitol.

    The network reached out to Trump’s staff and invited the president to fill out a bracket on-camera, just as President Barack Obama had the past several years. The network recently received word that Trump has passed. An ESPN spokesman said in a statement: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.” White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email to The Washington Post: “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future.” Neither the White House nor ESPN had any details on what other opportunities...

    A Republican-dominated White House, Senate, and House of Representatives are trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), former President Barack Obama's ambitious health care overhaul. They've run into some problems, however. [Snip] NFL players make millions, so it may be surprising to know many rely on the ACA for health insurance. DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the National Football League Players' Association (NFLPA), explained on CBS' Face of The Nation last month that the "100 percent injury rate" in football means that all players have pre-existing conditions - health issues that began before their post-retirement insurance policies took effect....
