ITS ONLY JUST BEGUN …
According to Nielsen ratings, the NFL is down 11% this year as compared to 2016. After this past weekends despicable actions by NFL players and owners alike, look for the TV ratings to slide even more. The fans are pissed at the disrespectful actions of the NFL and their disrespect the the U.S. flag, the National Anthem and to the men and women who have died protecting our liberties and freedoms. Look for the ratings to go down much further as We the People teach the NFL a valuable lesson in patriotism, freedom and respect. One has to wonder what the NFL is thinking in attacking their fan base and some how stating they are unified. Unified against what exactly, the very people who buy their merchandise, pay for tickets and watch the games? DirecTV has experienced a wave of cancellations amid the NFL National Anthem protects. Keep it up NFL, you better figure out who butters your bread and why. Americans have other things they can do on Sundays than deal with you disrespectful malcontents.
Through three weeks, viewership for national telecasts of NFL games is down 11 percent this season compared to 2016, the Nielsen company said on Tuesday.
Nielsen said the games averaged 17.63 million viewers for the first three weeks of last season, and have dipped to 15.65 million this year. The Nielsen figures don’t include many of the Sunday afternoon games that are shown to a regional audience, but not a national one.
The NFL ratings are in focus because of President Donald Trump’s suggestion that viewers are turned off by a protest against police brutality that began with quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the national anthem. The protests spread rapidly this past weekend following the president’s criticism of people involved.
Next week’s ratings will be even more closely watched, since conservative groups and Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity have called for people angered by the protests to boycott this weekend’s games.
ESPN Slaps Host Jemele Hill on the Wrist for Calling President Trump a ‘White Supremacist’ on Twitter
HEY ESPN, AND YOU WONDER WHY YOU ARE HEMORRHAGING VIEWERSHIP AND LAYING OFF STAFF?
Ever wonder what it took to keep your job at ESPN as they are in the midst of massive layoffs? One just has to be black, female, liberal and espouse vile hatred toward President Donald Trump. ESPN host Jemele Hill called President Trump a “white supremacist” via Twitter. Hmm, remember when ESPN was all about sports? Me neither. So what did the ESPN brass do to Jemele Hill for her inappropriate actions? That’s correct, nothing. Less than a slap on the wrist. No suspension, no firing, just a firm talking to. Wow, this is a far cry from what they did to Curt Schilling when ESPN fired him for comments that he made over social media after he shared on Facebook a lewd cartoon criticizing North Carolina’s controversial “bathroom bill,” that would have required transgender individuals to use public bathrooms that corresponded to the sex they were assigned at birth. So whats the difference? Curt was male, white and most importantly, leans right. Sadly ESPN has become a joke of a network as it has moved so far LEFT in recent years that its nearly unwatchable. ESPN claims they are an inclusive company. Really? You mean only inclusive and diverse to your Leftist agenda.
Yeah Jemele, President Trump is such a white supremacist. Why don’t you stick to what little you do actually know about. This BS from the same liberal who has crusaded for the no-talent and American hating QB Colin Kaepernick to get his job back. People tune into ESPN for sports and to get away from politics. It is no wonder ESPN is dying on the vine these days.
Popular ESPN “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill is no fan of President Trump. However, her employer would rather she keep that to herself.
On Tuesday, the network released a statement on a comment the 41-year-old made on Twitter on Monday, when she labeled Trump a “white supremacist.”
ESPN, which has been accused by far-right conservatives of being too openly liberal with its politics, called Hill’s tweet “inappropriate” and noted her comments do not “represent the position of ESPN.”
ESPN said it addressed the issue with Hill, who will not be suspended or further punished for her expressing her views online.
Among those offering support for Hill online was Colin Kaepernick, who told her via Twitter, “We are with you,” and who himself has been highly critical of Trump. The former 49ers quarterback has been notably unable to latch on with an NFL team, which many attribute to his protests of racial injustice last season, in which he knelt during pregame renditions of the national anthem.
Hill’s tweet about Trump came just before 8 p.m. Monday as a reply to three others who had joined a conversation sparked by an earlier tweet about musician Kid Rock, who has spent much of the summer teasing at a Republican run for the U.S. Senate.
Hill originally commented on an article tweeted by the Hill about Kid Rock’s rejection of being labeled a racist because he favors the Confederate Flag.
A note to ESPN, you should be ashamed of yourself. Nice double standard you have at your company. You should have taken action against Ms. Hill for her irresponsible actions and suspended her. It is no wonder that your network is only a shell of what it once was. STICK TO SPORTS! But instead you have to push your liberal agenda down the throats of your viewers, many of which voted for President Donald Trump. I would dare say that your viewership base is more Red state than blue. You might want to remember that.
THIS IS A GREAT GET BY FOX NEWS … MEGYN WHO?
It appears that the radio host, founder and editor-in-chief of Lifezette.com and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham is set to take over the 10 PM time slot at FOX News. Tucker Carlson will stay at 8 PM, Hannity will shift from 10 PM to 9 PM and thankfully, The Five will be removed from prime time where it never belonged and switched back to 5 PM.Personally, I would have left Sean at 10 PM and put Laura in at 9, but that’s just my opinion. With a prime time line up of Tucker, Sean and Laura, FOX News will dominate.
You will remember back in January when it was announced that Megyn Kelly was leaving FOX News, SM voiced their opinion who should be her replacement and said, “My choice would be Laura Ingraham, with Dana Loesch being a very close second.” BINGO!!! This is a fantastic choice by FOX News and an upgrade from the over-rated Megyn Kelly. Laura Ingraham is a conservative with a huge fan base, she has been a one of my favorite radio addictions for years and is just what FOX News needed. She will succeed and we wish her well. It will definitely be her “time to shine.”
Ingraham is expected to take over the 10 p.m. hour on Fox News, according to people who spoke on condition of anonymity.
While there may be one or two final details to negotiate, Ingraham has been telling friends that the deal is essentially done, the sources said.
Her new show will be part of a broader change to the network’s top-rated prime time lineup. Sean Hannity’s show, currently at 10 p.m., will move one hour earlier to 9 p.m., multiple sources confirmed.
And “The Five,” a talk show originally named for its 5 p.m. time slot, will shift from 9 p.m. back to its namesake hour.
ESPN Blasted for Political Correctness … Liberal Network Pulls Asian Announcer Robert Lee from UVA Football Game for Fear of Offending Idiots
ESPN, THE FINAL ACT OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IDIOCY … EVEN BEING AN ASIAN-AMERICAN DOESN’T STOP YOU FROM BEING A RACIST, WHITE SUPREMACIST.
UNREAL, I actually thought this was an Onion headline when I first saw it. ESPN has gone to a place of idiocy and political correctness that is even out there for them. ESPN is actually going to remove an announcer from calling the University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. Is this man a white supremacist, racist or even a descendant of Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee? Nope, this Robert Lee is Asian. Can we just call ESPN, MSESPN from now on? Believe it or not, the fools in management at ESPN were concerned that having an Asian football announcer with the name of Robert Lee call a football game because it might e offensive to some viewers. What viewers, the moron contingency? I have news for you ESPN, snowflakes don’t watch football. Here is a question to ESPN and those that want to continue to watch the network, do you really think the people that watch your network are really that stupid? ESPN i already hemorrhaging viewership, maybe its time we no longer watch this liberal network at all seeing that they want to be more political than sports.
Just how ridiculous and foolish has this got? This is an indictment of ESPN in that there is no one there reasonable to differentiate the difference between Robert Lee and Robert E. Lee. Does this mean that some one is being discriminating against another for what another did. Even if this was the great, great grandson of Robert E. Lee, is he to blame for what his ancestor did? ESPN, you are idiots and should be ashamed.
Tucker Carlson Questions Why ESPN Pulled Asian Announcer Robert Lee Off The Air
Apparently, even being Asian doesn’t mean people won’t take you for being a white nationalist.
ESPN confirmed Tuesday night that it had decided to pull an announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. This Robert Lee is Asian.
“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties,” reads the ESPN statement posted at the popular Fox Sports college-football blog Outkick the Coverage.
“Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?” wrote disbelieving blogger Clay Travis, who first broke the story, citing “multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN.”
Mr. Lee had been scheduled to call the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary.
“It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue,” ESPN said in its statement.
Hmm, I am not seeing any similarities.
What kind of mental midgets are running ESPN these days? Oh, can I say midget, or does that offend the delicate sensibilities of the fools at ESPN?
ESPN confirmed the report in a statement Tuesday night, saying that “in that moment it felt right.”
“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name,” ESPN’s statement reads. “In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.”
“This makes it a bigger story than it ever would have been,” Travis said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday, arguing that Lee announcing the game would have led to little more than Twitter jokes.
“Instead we are talking about how absurd this decision is for ESPN for days to come,” he said.
“Does ESPN really believe people are this dumb or that having an Asian announcer named Robert Lee is too offensive for the average TV viewer to handle?” Travis wrote. “Yes, yes they do.”
“I’m sorry you work for such an idiotic company, Robert Lee,” he wrote.
Let’s hope that ESPN doesn’t have any other football announcers with the names of Samuel Cooper, Albert Johnston, Joseph Johnston, P. Beauregard, James Longstreet, Braxton Bragg, George Pickett or Bill(William) Anderson.
Fox News – Hannity 8/14/17 … Discusses the Hate & Riots in Charlottesville Caused by Extremism … Don’t Ever Let the MSM Define You! (VIDEO)
THE HATE BAITERS ARE OUT IN FORCE … THE MSM LOOKS TO DIVIDE AMERICA …
It is hard to believe we have this type of hate, ignorance and racists in America today. However, this is such a small pocket of extremist hate on both sides of the political spectrum, right and left. This is what happens when hate meets hate. Thankfully, this is a minority of people, fringe groups, but you would never know that if you listened to the media.
It is a sad state of affairs when the liberal MSM tries to point blame at everyday, average, run of the mill Americans who are Republicans, conservatives or are on the Right, with extremest, ignorant white supremacist, Nazi types. The sick MSM took the opportunity this weekend to call President Trump and in turn all who voted for him as racists too. REALLY? The LEFT and the Attack Trump media took this tragic event as an opportunity to spread their own division and hate. It is bad enough we have this kind of evil, hate and ignorance in America, do we really need the MSM fanning the flames and calling hard working, law abiding citizens who they agree with racists too?
Oh the hypocrisy of the LEFT and the MSM … isn’t it them who remind us all the time that radical Islam is not Islam? We are constantly told that Islam is a religion of peace every time there is a terrorist event and that all Muslims should not be held responsible for the actions of the radical, extremist few. So what’s the difference? Nope, not when it comes to racism, some how the acts of white supremacists some how reflect the President and all whites who voted for him. REALLY?
Or what about the Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer who opened fire yesterday in Alexandria, Va on Republican Congressman as they practiced baseball for an upcoming charity baseball game? Weren’t we told this was not a reflection of all of the LEFT? We were told by Sen. Sanders that he condemned these actions. Hell, this guy volunteered for his campaign and we give the LEFT and Sanders a pass. But oh no, not when the vile MSM and their sick divisive agenda is at work. Their double standard and hypocrisy is disgusting.
