    Fox Sports reporter Allison Williams is one of two former ESPN employees suing the Worldwide Leader over their termination for refusing to comply with the company’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate. Williams and former producer Beth Faber filed a joint lawsuit on Wednesday, claiming ESPN and Disney violated their religious beliefs. In the 83-page complaint, filed in Connecticut, Williams claims she applied for an “exemption from vaccination on grounds of disability” as she was set to undergo in vitro fertilization. She later applied for a religious exemption, which was denied and led to her exit from the company in October 2021.

    The phrase "thoughts and prayers" has been spoken, texted and tweeted countless times since Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest on Monday Night Football. One ESPN analyst took the phrase to heart Tuesday, praying for Hamlin on live TV. As Hamlin remains in critical condition, Dan Orlovsky said a prayer for the Buffalo Bills safety during Tuesday's edition of "NFL Live." "God, we come to you in these moments that we don't understand, that are hard, because we believe that you're God, and coming to you and praying to you has impact," Orlovsky said. "We're sad, we're angry, and we...

    Griner’s welcome home party on a military base outside San Antonio, Texas, included a barbecue and a Christmas tree. Her first move of freedom on the basketball court was a dunk. Griner has since announced her intentions to return to the Phoenix Mercury this season after the WNBA paid her entire 2022 salary while incarcerated. Griner’s welcome party in her collegiate town of Baylor, Texas, at a church minutes away from the campus on which she won a national championship, was only attended by 20 celebrators, according to an ESPN profile of the event. The church expected many more in...

    The sports media world reportedly lost a great one earlier this week. According to multiple reports, longtime sportscaster Fred Hickman, known most for his work on CNN and ESPN, has passed away. "RIP Fred Hickman. If you are about my age, he was one of the faces on your sports-crazy youth on CNN. He was a true OG in the field. Him, Nick Charles, Vince Cellini, Van Earl Wright, Jerome Jurenovich, etc. They were our internet before the internet," Colin Cunlap tweeted. The sports media world is heartbroken over the tough news on Wednesday night. "I just learned of the...
  • MSNBC's Cross Slams ESPN's Sage Steele as a 'Stepin Fetchit Minstrel Show'

    MSNBC's Tiffany Cross is a self-appointed "keeper of the [African-American] culture" and thus someone in a position to decide who is — and is not — an authentic "Black voice." Back in reality, one could deem her a racist for deciding whether fellow Black people are truly Black or instead treasonous to their race. Saturday morning on her show The Cross Connection, her themes were ones of bitterness and jealousy. Cross dismissed the Blackness of people like Sage Steele, Van Jones, and Carlos Watson because they get financial support from wealthy whites and thus "have that gift of making white...

    The drama around Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder is escalating to new levels. A bombshell ESPN report on Thursday morning details how Snyder and his fellow owners are moving toward a showdown that could ultimately lead to his ouster. The story alleges that Snyder has been digging up dirt on his fellow owners, including allegedly hiring private investigators through his law firms, in a brazen attempt to keep control of his scandal-scarred franchise and has enough information to “blow up” several of them. One owner told the website that Snyder told him he “has dirt on Jerry Jones,” his one-time...

    Commanders owner Dan Snyder believes he has enough “dirt” on fellow NFL owners, commissioner Roger Goodell and league officials that he could “blow up” several people and organizations, ESPN’s Don Van Natta Jr., Seth Wickersham and Tisha Thompson reported Thursday. “He’s backed into a corner,” a veteran owner told the network. “He’s behaving like a mad dog cornered.” ESPN’s report comes at a time when the embattled owner is facing investigations from the league and a congressional committee looking into workplace misconduct in the franchise. Yet, Snyder reportedly told associates he does not plan to lose the Washington team “without...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Bills rookie punter Matt Araiza and two others have been accused of gang raping a 17-year-old girl last year in a lawsuit filed in San Diego County Superior Court on Thursday. The lawsuit, obtained by ESPN, involves allegations against Araiza and two of his former San Diego State teammates. The other men named in the complaint are Zavier Leonard, a redshirt freshman with the Aztecs, and Nowlin Ewaliko, who was a freshman last season but is no longer on the listed roster. All three are accused of rape, gender violence and false imprisonment.

    The NFL and ESPN evidently have no time or tolerance for God and Jesus. Both organizations censored the young son of a player who said he loves the whole world, God and Jesus. The boy in question is Aaiden Diggs, whose father Trevon plays cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys. Earlier this week, Trevon brought his five-year-old son to media day and the boy delivered an incredibly positive message to brighten the day.: "Every time I'm with my dad I love it because he gets me picks and it makes me happy. I love the whole world, I love God and...

    The Lid ^ | 8 Aug 2022 | Ari Kaufman
    Another irascible ESPN employee worth tens of millions recently decided to bash the country that made him rich despite never working a real job in his life. d A couple days ago, Jalen Rose recorded an incoherent video of himself regurgitating clichés someone told him to have about Mount Rushmore. The rant about native Americans, Columbus, and stolen land came from nowhere and made little sense. Unlike how ESPN treated its few right, leaning, employees, they surely will not reprimand Rose and may even applaud the idiocy. It’s also not the former pro basketball player’s first effort into hard-left idiocy...

    It seems like Disney has been deliberately chasing controversy the past couple of years. Leaks of management video conferences have shown the company to be widely engaged in distributing woke propaganda through its entertainment media. They openly opposed Florida's anti-grooming bill which prevented teachers from engaging in sexualized discussions with young children. And, a majority of their box office movies and streaming content has fallen flat in terms of audience numbers and revenues. Disney's stock has plunged by around 30% in the past six months, and the company is now heavily relying on cash from the theme parks to keep...

    Disney has replaced the title of “fairy godmothers” for gender-neutral “apprentices” at dress-up boutiques at its U.S. theme parks in an effort to be inclusive, according to the parks' websites. Cast members at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney parks, who help children transform into their favorite Disney characters with make-up and costumes, were previously called “Fairy Godmothers in Training.” Now they are called “Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices." “This way cast members that might not identify as female can still be part of the process to dress up & style the children without having to refer to themselves as a female...

The court heard the couple met when he was her martial arts instructor, and she went on to have a successful career in martial...

    A look at streaming services catering to families and conservatives reveals some surprisingly good titles.On Wednesday, Disney announced it added only 1.5 million domestic subscribers this spring to its flagship streaming service, with anticipated higher costs in the year ahead. The company’s market value quickly dipped to a two-year low. Such weak results seem to confirm the power of a movement among conservative parents to “cancel Disney” after surreptitiously recorded remarks by Disney creative executives about their “not-so-secret gay agenda” spread online. Relaying what he has heard from Christian families about those comments, Erick Goss, head of faith-based streamer Minno,...

    Disney on Monday released a new LGBTQ-themed clothing line for young children amid Florida’s attacks on the company for its opposition to a recent parental rights in education law. The new products include a variety of children’s attire and accessories — such as T-shirts, baby wear, bracelets, sweaters, socks, and girls’ backpacks — in the rainbow colors of the “Pride” flag, a symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Many items mix the Pride flag’s color scheme with Mickey Mouse and other fictional Disney characters. They also include Pride-themed Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar designs — among the...
