ESPN’s New Morning “WokeCenter” a Complete Disaster

Published

on

Monday was supposed to be a huge day for the network brass over at ESPN as they launched their new morning show, Get Up!, a multi-million dollar investment meant to stake the sports media company’s flag firmly in the world of the liberal media.

However, the ratings from Monday’s maiden episode of Get Up! were nothing to write home about.

They were absolutely atrocious.

According to ShowBuzzDaily.com, Get Up! was only able to garner roughly 283,000 total viewers despite debuting the morning after a Final Four weekend sports fans couldn’t stop talking about.

To put that in perspective, the Nickelodeon children’s show Peppa Pig garnered nearly three-times more viewers than ESPN’s newest flagship program.

Just a few weeks ago, word began to leak out that ESPN’s newest morning show wouldn’t be the most sports-centric show on the network, and would push the limits of “wokeness” ESPN viewers became accustomed to from the former SC6 edition of SportsCenter that has also recently been dubbed a failure.

As The Hollywood Reporter pointed out back on March 21st:

Still, “when players take a knee, then it deserves coverage and conversation,” notes Wolff, referring to NFL players’ national anthem protests. “If something political makes itself part of our world, we are dishonest and inauthentic if we don’t discuss it.”

Rose notes that he has “never been muzzled in any way” during his decade at ESPN, he says: “I appreciate the fact that I’m able to talk about more than what happened in last night’s NBA game. And I think fans appreciate that. When our president tweets about sports, now he’s fair game.”

Apparently, ESPN simply didn’t learn from the failed push towards the social justice warrior left by former network president John Skipper.

In fact, according to The Hollywood Reporter, ESPN was set to double-down on the idea of pushing more to the social justice warrior left with Get Up!, leasing 21,000-square-feet of studio and office space in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport and handing out roughly $15 MILLION worth of salaries to the show’s three hosts – $6.5 million for Mike Greenberg, $5 million for Michelle Beadle, and just $3 million for Jalen Rose.

Hilariously, the show’s first episode opened with the following “super hero trailer” designed to make light of the show’s “high expectations.”

ESPN is just the gift that keeps on giving.

NFL Coach Bill Belichick Declines Presidential Medal of Freedom, Citing ‘Social Justice’ Reasons

More sportsball cowardice.

Published

on

NFL coach Bill Belichick has caved to the politically correct mob and will be rejecting the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Donald Trump.

He made the announcement on Tuesday that he was rejecting the Medal of Freedom to the NFL Network.

“Recently, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients. Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award,” Belichick said.

“Above all, I am an American citizen with great reverence for our nation’s values, freedom and democracy. I know I also represent my family and the New England Patriots team. One of the most rewarding things in my professional career took place in 2020 when, through the great leadership within our team, conversations about social justice, equality and human rights moved to the forefront and became actions. Continuing those efforts while remaining true to the people, team and country I love outweigh the benefits of any individual award,” he added.

Before he was gelded, Belichick had been a long-time friend of Trump, and he had endorsed Trump back in 2016 in a glowing letter that the soon-to-be president read to a New Hampshire crowd.

“Congratulations on a tremendous campaign. You have dealt with an unbelievable slanted and negative media, and have come out beautifully – beautifully,” Belichick wrote. “You’ve proved to be the ultimate competitor and fighter. Your leadership is amazing.”

“I have always had tremendous respect for you, but the toughness and perseverance you have displayed over the past year is remarkable. Hopefully tomorrow’s election results will give the opportunity to make America great again. Best wishes for great results tomorrow,” he added.

Unfortunately, the far-left NFL eventually wore Belichick down and he folded to the liberal mob.

Big League Politics has reported on the NFL’s embrace of the Black Lives Matter terror movement following the China-backed protests of washed up former QB Colin Kaepernick:

The National Football League is planning to play what some call the “Black National Anthem” before every Week One game during the 2020 season, a nod to dissatisfaction with the American National Anthem within the league’s player base and the broader liberal social justice movement in the United States.

The league will feature the song ‘Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,’ playing it in a manner similar to how the Star Spangled Banner is traditionally played at games. Sources indicate that the former will be played before the latter.

NFL players will also be permitted the option of memorializing individuals who are allegedly the victims of police violence, wearing a sticker on their helmets with the names of individuals such as George Floyd.

The New England Patriots ought to change the name of their team after Belichick’s shameful capitulation and betrayal of President Trump.
