Nolte: ESPN President Takes a Knee
‘Fans Do Not Want Us to Cover Politics’

Image: https://media.breitbart.com/media/2018/08/ap-5-640x480.jpg


quote:

ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro conceded defeat Monday by finally admitting, “Without question our data tells us our fans do not want us to cover politics.”

Well, no shite.

You needed your data to tell you that, Jimmy?

You needed to convene something to do a tabulation that deliver some data, Jimmy?

Was it the 15 million lost subscribers? Was that the “data?”


Breitbart

No matter... it's likely too late for many.

They'll just be subtle about it next time.

I reeeeeeally don't have any hopes.

I'll just watch streams.

I watch games on ESPN. Nothing else.

My dad dropped his entire sports package completely.

This guy needed data to come to that conclusion? WTF?

So viewers go to the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network and don't expect politics?

Who knew?

I bet saying they need to change is all we get. The SJW is too strong in the folks working there. I doubt they cut back the social commentary 1%.

It's not free if you pay $39.99 per month for it as part of your cable package.

It is amazing that guys like him get to those levels w/o having any vision & situational awareness.

Other than the actual game telecast, they absolutely ruined their college football coverage.

The only fans that don’t want politics covered are right wing zealots who disagree with the liberal/left leaning politics of the athletes they watch.

If a bunch of trump frumpers were waging their MAGA tails around on ESPN, they’d love it.
