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.

Pro-Trump UFC Fighter Offers to Fight on White House Lawn During Coronavirus Pandemic

Colby Covington wants to put on a show for his fans.

Published

While most professional sports have shut down, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is still hoping to put on mixed martial arts fights during the coronavirus pandemic.

UFC promoter Dana White intends to put on his UFC 249 pay-per-view broadcast next month despite major problems in finding a venue and fighters willing to participate in the event. He refuses to say where the event, which is scheduled to take place on Apr. 18, will ultimately take place.

“Believe me, people have been talking about that,” White said of the potential for holding UFC 249 on an aircraft carrier. “I haven’t resorted to that yet, but that’s probably coming soon.”

White, an avid supporter of President Donald Trump who hosted the President at a UFC event last year, blames the fake news media for making it so difficult for him to promote a fight during the pandemic.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

Former UFC champion and outspoken bad boy Colby Covington has a suggestion for White on where to hold the event: the White House lawn. Covington offered to fight another former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in a free exhibition at any time.

“‪The offer still stands UFC. I’ll go full Teddy Roosevelt & beat the breaks off Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley live from The White House lawn! Save sports and make it free on ESPN for the people! Im in such a giving mood I’ll even arrange a tour of the oval office for Tyrone, since Obama never did,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

Covington is one of the most outspoken Trump supporters in all of professional sports, building his entire public image around his support of the President.

“The haters are saying I’m the underdog,” Covington said in 2018. “You know who else was the underdog? The ruler of our nation Donald Trump. And just like Trump I’m gonna grab these p**sies and put them in their place.”

In an iconic photograph, Covington can be seen presenting his former UFC title to President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

“He didn’t have to spend as much time as he did with us, and he legitimately gave us 30 minutes – just (expletive), told us some funny stories, he likes chicks, he likes wrestling, he likes MMA. And he was just telling us stories and just being a regular guy. He’s down to earth. He’s just a regular guy,” Covington said following his meeting with the President.

Covington hopes to make the UFC great again, and give lockdown-weary Americans something to excite them, with a patriotic display of ultimate fighting outside of the White House.
