ESPN’s Liberal Agenda is driving the company owned by Disney into massive layoffs, including big name analysts. Over the past few years ESPN has become more and more left wing. Not surprisingly, they are bleeding subscribers who don’t want to spend good money to listen to a bunch of morons spout their liberal ideology.
Soon it could affect their programming. Imagine if every time you turn on ESPN they are showing two white guys boxing? Yuck. They will add other shows like “The Wide World of Mahzong” or the World Series of Miniature Golf.”
How long will Disney shareholders be willing to see their profits be diminished by ESPN? ESPN is losing up to 10,000 subscribers a day. While liberals at ESPN are allowed to say the most outrageous things, conservatives like Curt Schilling are thrown off the air.
“A floundering ESPN, with rising costs and declining viewership, continued to sink Disney’s DIS, +0.24% financial results during its fiscal first quarter,” MarketWatch.com reported.
With ESPN dragging on the company, Disney’s revenue fell 3 percent, and its profits sank 14 percent, the financial site reported.
As to ESPN itself, the network lost subscribers, found its average viewership crater, and experienced falling advertising rates even as its programming costs climbed. And this fall from grace continued even after Disney insisted that ESPN had reached its bottom after the previous quarter came to an end.
ESPN’s crashing revenue coincides with its increasingly leftward political content, a drift so blatant that the network’s ombudsman felt pressured to address the network’s political content.
Last November, ESPN’s Jim Brady presented evidence that even inside its executive boardroom complaints from viewers have resonated that sports cable network ESPN has become far too liberal.
