Series Of Videos Reveal That ESPN's Transition To MSNBC-Lite Is Now Complete

Tyler Durden's picture

We should have known the moment that their Asian announcer, Robert Lee (did we mention he's Asian), got pulled from the William and Mary vs. University of Virginia college football game last month for having the same name as a Confederate General that ESPN's transition from sports commentary to 'MSNBC-Lite' was inevitable.  Now, just one month after that fateful decision, it appears that ESPN's metamorphosis is complete.

As the Daily Caller noted, the following series of clips from today on ESPN proves that the network has turned into a running political talk show centered around one man: President Trump.

When asked if Sunday’s protests were primarily against Trump rather than against racial injustice, ESPN commentator and former NFL safety Louis Riddick simply responded, “Sure.”


“Sure, because the players felt attacked and disrespected. The players are like, you are going there name calling because we are trying to protest against something we have a right and freedom to protest against peacefully, and you make it personal and use derogatory names and paint us all with a derogatory brush?” Riddick said.


“[Trump] is what they were protesting yesterday in and of itself, and spurred on the spike [in protests]. But I think the players in general, African-Americans in general, minorities in general, still have a bigger picture in mind. There is something bigger they are after. They are after equality and fair treatment but we can’t get there because all we keep talking about is, ‘should you had stand or shouldn’t you stand,'” he complained.


Meanwhile, Max Kellerman questioned whether President Trump would make it to the end of his first term in office just before launching into a tirade over Trump losing the popular vote.


And here is Kellerman explaining why LeBron James has every right to call the President a bum...though we do wonder whether he would have held the same opinion if a player made the same comments about President Obama.


Meanwhile, these guys managed to link the weekend's entire controversy back to immigration reform!?!?


It seems that an incredibly aggressive strain of Trump Derangement Syndrome is now spreading throughout television studios all across the country.

Would the NFL owners be just as supportive if their players started giving the nazi salute during the national anthem?

Why do jews hate Trump so much? I mean, his son in law's a jew. His own daughter converted and became a jew. Trump filled his cabinet and key positions with jews. Trump loves Israel and could be argued that he's their puppet. Yet all these jews-run networks are shitting themselves over Trump and losing their minds.

Trump sucks NetinYahoo sausage, even Obama was better than him and Obama was an outright turd. Hilary is Satin in drag. Politics is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex........Frank Zappa.

You've asked a very important question. Now here is the answer which many here do not seem to understand.

BECAUSE IT IS ALL A FAKE SCRIPTED LIE. Trump has been inbed with media networks for a very long time. He's a former reality TV star who made NBC millions of dollars with his Apprentice show. He is and has always been an actor.

Trump's gig is to play the role of the "angry old conservative white guy" as President. The media's pre-planned role is to attack him constantly and without fail. The more someone repeats a lie, the more real it becomes until someday everyone takes it as truth. By the time he's out of office, so many Americans will have associated things like "nationalism", "conservatism", "populism", etc with simply "Trump" that all those things will have become socially toxic. They will then have achieved their goal of making America more socialist and liberal and more open to big government.

Trump has always been a globallist plant whose purpose was to strengthen Democrats in the American public's eyes, and weaken the standing of the Republican party, especially grassroots movements like the Patriot movements. It's exactly what the feds want and it's exactly what they're getting.

I hope to God you're not right.

Then again, something in my guts tells me you are.

sheikurbootie's picture

You must be a millennial.... I thought Trump's minor TV role ran for 2-3 years.  I never watched it.  It's a very, very small portion of his life and empire.

Trump has been a household name for 40 years.  He's extremely famous in NYC and dearly loved.  I met with a friend from NYC (who happens to be black) and he loves Trump, I had no idea.  My friend said everyone with a brain and not a hand stuck out, loves Trump in NYC.

It's not scripted, you're just a moron with a map and can't read it.

Not really.

BOTH parties are in the shitter. The Repukes get mo money now...but de Dems are in the same camp....history has shown each party to be in the ditch at one time or another.....last time de Dems were in this rough shape was 80-81

This NFL thing has pissed off MILLIONS of white men - and women.

Not a wise battlefield - unless the fucked up perverted powers that be WANT it boiling over....

Still some rough edges that need correcting.

I grant you all of what you said your post; could be spot on (Israel?...Fuck....what a bollixed up piece of dirt that is)

This divisive bullshit *(see aformentioned NFL, et. al.) has the asinine fucked up bought off slanted bias media cranking out shit 24/7. Every 20 minutes; new meat to shoot at.

for the same reason most people think you're a shit swilling idiot.  Did I mention racist too?

Clicks, ratings, sales.....zombificationing.................

Trump was wrong on the NYT revenue

Hell....he had a kissy kissy with Helu.....

nfl and their pet media is rubbing joe sixpack's nose in their shit and daring him to do something about it. "and next week, we're gonna fuck your wife, Joe!"

it's a pity there's no way to short the nfl

I can't wait for Roger Goodells new book, named "What Happened"!!!

Chupacabra-322's picture

The NFL rule book specifically requires both teams appear on the field for the playing of the anthem, standing, remaining quiet, and holding their helmets in their left hands. Failure to do so can result in fines, suspensions, and the loss of draft picks.

Presstitute's all of them.

I wouldn't piss on Kellermen if he was on fire. Douche Bag thought the GGG / Canelo fight was a draw. He was sucking Canelo Cock all night long with his commentary during the fight.

GGG shots landed 218.

The clear loser Canelo only hit GGG 169.

Pool Shark's picture

Would Bob Iger support his employee quoting Das Capital while wearing the Mickey Mouse costume in front of patrons in Disneyland?

NFL players are wearing the organization's uniform, they are on company time, they are being paid to follow the rules, they are the company's representatives and spokesmen.
If the NFL fails to discipline them (like any normal employer would do), they have implicitly adopted and approved of the player's statement; which is blatantly anti-American.

I have never been a big NFL fan, but I used to follow a couple teams.

Not anymore.

Oh, and ESPN can DIAF.
Stop paying for cable. Stop giving ESPN $7.00 every single month.
Starve the beast.

NFL = No Fans Left

Mr. Bigly, et-al, PLEASE post this EVERYWHERE that you are able, and STRONGLY-ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU KNOW to call The NFL direct-line, and LET THEM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


(212)450-2000 Call the league office during the week and let them know how
you feel! This was on at "Soldier Field"? What a bunch of disrespectful
pigs! NFL is going be hurting bad after this week!"

Please call them, and let them know you feel, about the players, AND COACHES, dis-respecting our NATION.


Thank you, People, in-advance, for doing something that WILL, ACTUALLY, make-a-difference, because I called that direct-line, spoke with a human-being, let that lady know EXACTLY how I felt, AND STILL FEEL, and then got transferred to a recordable-line, where I left a message for the management of The NFL to fucking hear.  Spread that number EVERYWHERE, and get MILLIONS-of-people to do what I did.  Call-in to radio-programs, and give that number, THREE TIMES, so that people will be sure to write-it-down.


Stop fucking-around, People, just preaching-to-the-choir--start doing things to MAKE-A-REAL-DIFFERENCE, out in the REAL WORLD, and not "just" online...


Thank you for your understanding, and diligence.

I am doing something that makes a real difference.  I am not going to watch NFL any more.

Look, it's abundantly clear that the owners want and promote that radical left agenda.  There are enough datapoints to confirm that that's what matters to them.  And theyknow people like us don't want that, but they intend to force it on us.  Talking just tells them how far you'll go, so they'll go just about up to that line, and figure that like the super-honorable typical white male, you'll keep your end of the bargain and continue loyalty to their product.

They already kicked sand in our faces over and over.  And now you are happy that you can speak to them?

LindseyNarratesWordress's picture

No, Dude...this shit is going TOO, TOO far, at-this-point, and you are just giving-up and giving-in, AND I FUCKING REFUSE!!!!!!!!!!! TO GIVE-UP AND GIVE-IN.


This shit is NOT going to continue like this, for-ever...

The "Play" button on the bottom video is pink.  I feel like I've been triggered and microagressed.  I don't know why, but I'm sure making it pink had a meaning I wouldn't agree with.

All those buttons are pink,on the inside.

Ah yes. For a man there's nothing like being inside the Pink.

On the other hand, Faggot Barry absolutely loves to take it in the Gums & Brown.

If I had  a Television I wouldn't watch this crap. so sorry I can't join your Boycott. but i am in in spirit

me too...after not having a TV for six years, I'm thinking about buying one though, this stuff is becoming quite compelling theater

Nona Yobiznes's picture

Same. Who needs a fucking television anymore? Just get a decent computer and a nice big monitor, and you are freed from the shackles of legacy entertainment.

I have a huge TV, but it's connected to a computer. ;-)  Cable? What's that?

gogobuffalo's picture

The brave athletes and newscasters of the NFL and ESPN have a moral obligation to oppose this illegitimate president.

Funny how those on the right are always "muh free speech", until it isn't convenient for them.

I'm a member of the Left - Because Facts Matter.

NoDebt's picture

And we have a right not to pay for their fucked up channel.  I can watch Al Sharpton any time I want on basic cable.


artichoke's picture

I renewed my Verizon FIOS within the past year, and found out I could not delete ESPN.  It is now a part of basic cable!

Not worth a premium!

hawaiian waverider's picture

haha.  Facts matter only if they fit your narrative.  If you're honest to any degree, you can see that is how the left operates.  

IridiumRebel's picture

The 44 brave athletes in the NFL that have beaten women? Those brave souls? Or Ray Murderer Lewis? Ray Rice?

Don't worry dumbass. You're outnumbered but feel strong cuz the cosksuckers that have a few bullhorns are guffawing about your strength.
You'll see soon enough. Beware the silent majority. It's just getting started.

I hope the 8 years of Trump is excruciatingly painful for you...... At least as painful as was the chairman for me.....
