No Surprise: ES(JW)PN Suspends Host Linda Cohn For Noting, Correctly, That ES(JW)PN Has Alienated Its Core Audience With Its Politics, While Meanwhile Giving a SJW Host a Pass For Calling Trump's Administration "Largely White Supremacist"

Here's what Linda Cohn said:

"They [ESPN] definitely overpaid for many of these products, whether it's the NBA or starting up networks like the Pac-12 Network and SEC Network,” she said on WABC's "Bernie and Sid Show." "It's well documented … They [also] did not see that they would lose all these subscribers [to competitors like Netflix.]

But it was more than just that. Politics played a part, as did the network's move away from strictly covering sports.

I felt that the old school viewers were put in a corner and not appreciated with all these other changes. And they forgot their core. You can never forget your core and be grateful for your core group."

Yeah, I do get why ES(JW)PN would be angry at that: Corporations don't like criticism, especially from an employee, and especially, especially when it's dead-on absolutely true and the corporation as a whole is frantically attempting to peddle a corporate lie that it's not true.

Clay Travis reports -- being tipped off by one of his insiders who are sick to death of ES(JW)PN's leftwing shenanigans:

According to multiple sources inside ESPN — Cohn declined comment when reached by Outkick — ESPN president John Skipper called Cohn and screamed at her for having the gall to share her opinion in public and told her to stay at home instead of coming to work that weekend. Why was Cohn to stay at home? So, according to an irate John Skipper, she could have time to think about what she had said.

He was tipped off by insiders after another ES(JW)PN host claimed that Trump's administration was "largely... white supremacist," and also claimed that white supremacists put him into office:


But ES(JW)PN took no action in that case -- they just issued a very mild "these comments do not reflect" our official position type statement.

But one kind of suspects they do: Clay Travis pointed out on Tucker Carlson last night that Bob Iger, CEO of Disney (ESPN's parent company) follows only 59 people total on Twitter, and one of them is Jamele Hill.

Incidentally, ES(JW)PN also had some SJW embarrassment on its Monday Night Football broadcast, as a guy who seemed to have been given sideline broadcasting duties based only on diversity checklists babbled about the power of diversity.

The writer of that article, by the way, came up with "ES(JW)PN," which I'm stealing.

Ben Domenech writes that if you don't like Jamele Hill's tweets, you'd like her show even less, which you're not watching anyway, based on statistics.

She's also a perfect example of the real reason ESPN’s original programming is sucking wind: she's a really lousy television host, having nothing to do with her politics. The SC6 branded show is not a good one, in part because you have two co-hosts who both are more serious and overly sincere than they are charismatic or quick with the snark. You don’t have the classic goofy/straight pairing, and they lack the tension of two co-hosts who disagree constantly. Neither is a particularly good interviewer, nor have they shown the ability to offer insight on sports that is deep, funny, or entertaining. The show is reduced to two fairly boring people sitting at a cramped table full of papers and laptops on a set that looks unchanged for the past twenty years talking about sports with less insight than a pair at the end of the neighborhood bar. Television is a visual medium, and visually, SC6 looks like local TV.

Meanwhile, one wonders when ES(JW)PN will get around to doing a 12 part story on this important Social Justice Warrior Gender Studies story: Sports are centered around "hegemonic masculinity's" emphasis on winning contests, and that's bad, because if women ran the world there would be no wars or whatever.


Are you tired of all the winning yet? Because Woke Gender Studies Feminists definitely are.

Oh, this might also make ES(JW)PN: The role in physical differences between men and women is overstated as a rationale for why men are better at sports.


It's really mostly about socialization, you know. It has nothing to do with the fact that the average man is several inches taller, and has 20-30 pounds more muscle, than the average woman.

It's just a sexist society telling women that they're not as strong or as big as men.

Why make such an absurd claim? In order to support the conclusion that it's okay that Male-to-Female transsexuals compete in women's sports, because really, there's not much difference between a man and woman physically, you see? It's mostly just a #Mindfuck of the #Patriarchy.

BTW, Hillary won the popular vote. But I bet your #PatriarchalOverlords haven't seen fit to share that with you.

Maybe This Explains a Few Things Update: Yup.

ESPN’s transformation is usually described as swapping a highlight for a debate segment. But the changes are even more elemental than that. At the SC6 staff meeting, everyone had their heads buried in their social media feeds, looking for content for the show. "I’m a hawk on TweetDeck," said Jeremy Lundblad, one of SC6’s producers.

Twitter is now the de facto coordinating producer of ESPN's daytime lineup. The network’s old currency was a highlight of Klay Thompson shooting a 3. The new currency-- and, indeed, that day's top offering-- was a video of Thompson dancing like a dork in a Chinese nightclub. Programming ESPN is like curating your Twitter feed: find the content that everyone’s talking about and craft the right joke.

The Doctrine of "No-Escapism:" eSJWpn is owned by Disney-- as is Marvel. And both are going into the tank as they alienate more and more of their former audience with hardcore SJW propaganda.

Diversity and Comics came up with the term "No Escapism" to describe this. Escapism -- which sports and comic books used to be -- was a nice, psychologically healthy escape from the conflicts of the real world.

But ESPN and Marvel have decided you will not be permitted any escapism. Instead, you will only have No-Escapism -- when you tune to ESPN or buy a Captain America comic, you will be subjected to constant strident political propaganda.

You will be permitted no peace, and allowed no escape from Big Brother's constant propaganda messaging:

Personally, I would prefer that they celebrate the 3 - 4 women who ACTUALLY earn the right to go the finals if they must do anything at all.

He has a good video on the idea of "No Escapism:" Disney is making sure that you cannot have escapist entertainment. All escapist entertainment comes with political propaganda at all times.

84 >>>I don't think I would blink if the entire Disney empire went tits up. The Mouse has had a long enough run.

it might be just wishful thinking, but I've noticed that the anti-Marvel and anti-Star Wars channels seem to be proliferating and that they are getting the #NotCool branding.

Disney's billion dollar investments in these properties might be made to be worth significantly less than they paid for them.

I hope, at least.

But even the Weekly Planet guys -- who are non political, and as "non political" people, of course make left-leaning statements and jokes -- are officially down and star wars and saying it's time to stop making movies except say every three years.

My wife, daughter and I love American Ninja Warrior but I hate the
constant refrain of Grrrrrl Power and the wimmins can do anything men
can do despite the glaringly obvious fact that this is not true based
purely on the results of their competition. They even changed the rules
this year to ensure that 2 women would qualify from every city and then
had the audacity to say that those women "earned" a spot in the finals.



Personally, I would prefer that they celebrate the 3 - 4 women who
ACTUALLY earn the right to go the finals if they must do anything at
all.

Posted by: Anachronda has no physical skills at September 13, 2017 02:33 PM (v3pYe)


In grad school I played tennis with a girlfriend who used to get pissed because I kept hitting bullets within a foot of the baseline. (I'm actually not bad at tennis, or wasn't at one time, at any rate, and used to play a housemate who'd been on UCLA's tennis team.) She seemed to think the idea was for me to hit her racket with the ball.

With another girlfriend I played racquetball, which was also a bloodbath if I played normally. This one used to get pissed when I went easy on her, which she took to be patronizing.

Then I had an idea, and played her right-handed. (I'm left-handed.) That made it considerably closer, and I didn't have play pat-a-cake.

162 "Inside ESPN, however, some feel the lack of tolerance of a particular political philosophy is a problem.

"We've done a great job of diversity," said longtime ESPN anchor Bob Ley. "But the one place we have miles to go is diversity of thought."

Many ESPN employees I talked to -- including liberals and conservatives, most of whom preferred to speak on background -- worry that the company's politics have become a little too obvious, empowering those who feel as if they're in line with the company's position and driving underground those who don't.

"If you're a Republican or conservative, you feel the need to talk in whispers"

175 Did we ever really get a head count on how many actual Nazis or actual KKK were at the charlottesville rally? Cuz the "white nationalist" thing is not the same. I'm not sure why they insist on putting "white" in there, since it is mostly about the WASPy founders' culture, not the whiteness per se, as I understand them.

But with all the racial division, maybe having a group not afraid to mention their white heritage is not so bad. It is not the same as "supremacist" though, which is what a lot of the other racial/ethnic/religious groups are.

In any case ... the left had the playbook out and all the MFM was ready for the Antifa saviors to bash the "white supremacists" ... so now all the anti-slavery Robert E Lee statues and schools must be smashed and/or burned. Trump was probably right, there were a lot of good people at the rally to support the monument ... that is not support for white supremacy AT ALL.

Twitter is highly Balkanized. Lefties and righties will pester the obvious targets on the other side, but for the most part the left follows the left and blocks the right. The right follows the right and blocks the left.

This actually explains how ESPN could be oblivious to how it's slanting its coverage. If they're just covering what "everyone" is talking about, but forget that "everyone" only includes people on the left on Twitter, then their coverage is as slanted as a matter of course.

They might even be fooling themselves by thinking they're escaping their personal circle bubble, but in fact they're reinforcing it.

324 "No-Escapism" only works when there are no alternatives. I'm sure they'll fight tooth and nail against the rising challengers to the House of Mouse, but I see an opportunity here: localize media. Instead of a vast national establishment where the coasts effectively hegemonize the entire nation, local content will, gradually, gain more share.

It wouldn't make much difference. The vast majority have never been charged, much less convicted of a felony --- which doesn't necessarily mean that they haven't committed one, of course.

But what would happen is that they would be even less likely to be charged than they are now.

(The exception would be in cases of 'domestic abuse,' where the mere accusation could derail a career.)

It turned into a conversation about the warrior spirit and one of the women started throwing out the usual out of context Sun Tzu quote bullshit. How women could complete in a no social rules environment, blah, blah, blah.

I mentioned that if the world ran according to the true warrior spirit with no social rules and there were no boundaries I would have just throat punched her and stuffed her in the trunk of my car for such a stupid comment.

Uncomfortable silence followed by laughing so hard people were about to puke.

Best part: refusal based on protecting "integrity of Special Counsel's investigation". Hilarious!

The "integrity" of a special counsel's investigation, which was unlawfully set up outside the scope of the relevant statute as there was no evidence of any criminal act, and which simply retraced the ground of fruitless and obviously pointless counter-intelligence investigations, and is reduced to "investigating" the private financial matters of private citizens from a decade ago, is a barrier to investigating KNOWN lawlessness, obstruction of justice, and more at the highest levels of government.

390 I checked out of professional sports in the late 1980s-1990s when sportsmanship was replaced by happy dances for a 2nd down tackle and only about 10 percent of a team seemed to hang around year to year. Plus being a Bear's fan...

(However, the Bears are actually looking mildly interesting this year)

Anyway, I still think football is the greatest sport ever created. I played youth and high school and now help coach my son's youth team of 6th graders. I look forward to every practice.

But it is different today. The snowflake to football player ratio is about 80 to 10. Full speed drills almost look half speed much of the time, with more dancing than hitting. If you ride them hard enough (in the right way) they actually start showing some aggression and drive and you see a few minutes of old school football here or there. Slowly but surely we are making them into boys who could someday be men.

I believe the record is actually 26 games in a row but winning 21 in a row is AMAZING! Who would have thunk it a little more than a month ago that the Indians would roll right in home field advantage. And they are scary good.

437 >>> Disney is making sure that you cannot have escapist entertainment. All escapist entertainment comes with political propaganda at all times. Thus, it's not escapism; it's been remade into No-Escapism -- you shall not be allowed a moment's peace at any Disney-owned outlet.

Marvel movie franchise has occasional bouts of sanity. I think it was in the first Avengers movie, Cap is whining about modern day ills, mentions global warming. Some sane person cut that from the film, though is in the DVD extras and though crazy SJW Whedon directed. But still, cut it was.

And they could have hired the OTT BLM SJW director lady for Black Panther, who no doubt would have done what they did to the horrible Coates written BP comic. Wisely they parted ways over "creative differences" and got a different black director.

So, not full Borg yet. But I keep waiting for the day Marvel films stop caring about middle America, fires whomever at Marvel is still sane, and lets the whole SJW shoe drop. I give it 5 years tops.

443 It is generally known that ESPN grossly overpaid for the NBA contract but they are stuck with it. Failure to renew would be racist.

The NBA is racist anyway, otherwise they'd only have 13% black players on their teams.

BTW, Hillary won the popular vote. But I bet your #PatriarchalOverlords haven't seen fit to share that with you.







Oh, I always LOVE that stupid argument, because it's irrelevant on it's face, because we don't use popular vote to elect Presidents. And if we did, the campaigns would have been totally different, as well as the vote totals. No way to predict how the result would have actually turned out.

It's like saying that the Giants REALLY won, because they scored three times when the Cowboys only scored twice. The fact that the Giants made three field goals while the Cowboys were all about the touchdowns is just Teh Patriarchy cheating again.

448 You'd think ESPN's primary focus would be on why there are still men's and women's events in the Olympics, why the PGA/LPGA are not simply combined, ditto NBA/WNBA, men's/women's hockey, soccer, MMA, etc. After all - we are all equal, and gender is just a social construct, so no need for different leagues or rules.

455 "It's just a sexist society telling women that they're not as strong or as big as men."

It's also society telling these nutballs that their life in The Matrix means nothing in meatspace. There's real physics going on, not simply mental gymnastics to imagine the impossible.

Their grasp of The Science is... underwhelming. But then again, their brains are smaller. And let's not even start on genitalia and testosterone.

464 No escapism means --- no entertainment.

Sports and comics are entertainment products. If they stop providing entertainment, the folks looking for entertainment will choose other products. And today, there are tons of entertainment products to choose from.
