The sports blog Deadspin, which is owned by G/O Media, is falling to pieces after an internal memo from management told writers to “stick to sports” due to a massive fan backlash against political content.
The entitled social justice warrior staffers have staged a revolt, with many quitting their positions rather than performing the jobs they were hired to do.
Hi! I’ve just been fired from Deadspin for not sticking to sports.

The Gizmodo Media Group union, which is apart of the Writers Guild of America East that unionized Deadspin writers last year, issued a message of solidarity to all of the writers taking a stand against doing their jobs.
“’Stick to sports’ is and always has been a euphemism for don’t speak truth to power,” they wrote, calling out G/O Media CEO Jim Spanfeller in particular for the policy.
“In addition to being bad business, Spanfeller’s actions are morally reprehensible,” the union claimed.

However, G/O Media claims that the changes they are making are in fact good for business. They are responding to market demand at a time when demand for “woke” sports media is in the toilet.
“In September, unsurprisingly, 24 of the top 25 stories on Deadspin were sports-related while non-sports content accounted for less than 1 percent of the page views on the site,” a spokesman for G/O Media said.
The spokesman added that “our writers have a free hand to cover the intersection of sports and politics, sports and pop culture, sports and business, or, frankly, just about any topic even tangentially related to sports.”
ESPN has made similar editorial changes in recent months, which has sent their SJW personalities into a tizzy as a result:
The iconic sports network ESPN finds itself in a serious bind. After embracing woke identity politics while Obama was President and doubling down with constant ‘Orange Man Bad’ coverage after Trump replaced him, the network is attempting to put the genie back in the bottle and ignore politics altogether.
The only problem is their analysts, many of whom are social justice warriors who have been immersed in the fake news ecosystem for their entire careers, are not going along with the program despite the fact that it is what their fans want…
ESPN host Dan Le Betard, who wrote for the Miami Herald from 1990-2016, is openly defying the orders from his boss as he feels that the sports network should be a vehicle for his leftist political beliefs.
“We here at ESPN don’t have the stomach for the fight. We don’t talk about what is happening unless there is some sort of weak, cowardly sports angle that we can run it through,” said Le Betard, who clearly believes every facet of modern life should be relentlessly politicized.
Barstool Sports, a blog that has gained a large following by standing in opposition to “woke” left-wing culture, issued a mocking challenge to Deadspin employees.
“Anyway as an olive branch to my good friends at Deadspin and in a sign of solidarity with the Deadspin Union I will publish any blog trashing Deadspin written by Deadspin employees that is getting deleted by the Deadspin owners… How gallant is that?” Barstool president Dave Portnoy said.
The former Deadpool employees may be wise to learn to code, as the woke media industry dries up as consumers grow weary with the nauseating agenda.
SCAM HEARING: Rudy Giuliani Gets Squeezed by Michigan GOP Leaders with Key Whistleblowers Unable to Give Testimony
State representative Matt Hall perpetrated this scam.
Tonight’s hearing in Lansing, Mich. featuring attorney Rudy Giuliani has been deliberately scheduled late at night by Republican leaders so whistleblowers can be disenfranchised and not have their powerful testimonies heard by the masses, Big League Politics has learned.
Earlier today, journalist and whistleblower Shane Trejo received a call from Rudy Giuliani attorney Christina Bobb asking him to give testimony with Giuliani about the fraud he witnessed in Detroit on election day. Trejo also hoped to talk about the terror campaign instituted against whistleblowers and public officials by Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel.
Trejo had given truncated testimony at a hearing before the Senate Oversight Committee on Monday, in which he was limited to under three minutes. The video can be seen here:
However, shortly after Bobb extended the invitation for Trejo to speak, she was forced to rescind it. Bobb explained that Trejo would not likely be included on the docket because state representative Matt Hall scheduled the hearing in the House Oversight Committee at 6pm. Trejo believes this is being done to deliberately limit the time in which whistleblowers are able to speak.
“Matt Hall first said that he wasn’t going to bring Giuliani into the state of Michigan because of “logistical” concerns. After overwhelming anger due to his cowardly betrayal of his constituents, he was finally forced to acquiesce and hold a hearing,” Trejo said.
“Then he decided to hold the hearing at 6pm. Now, countless whistleblowers are having their voices muted as a result. This is just another insult against the heroes risking it all to come forward and expose the most heinous crime in U.S. history,” Trejo added.
Big League Politics has reported about the complicity of Michigan Republican leaders with the Democrats who orchestrated the vote steal:
Earlier this week, Big League Politics reported on the cowardly Republicans on the state board of canvassers who signed off on a dubious vote even after dozens of conservative whistleblowers have come forth detailing a third-world gangster vote steal operation that occurred in the city of Detroit.
One Republican on the state board of canvassers, Norm Shinkle abstained from the vote, being too weak to actually oppose electoral impropriety. The other Republican on the state board of canvassers, Aaron Van Langevelde, actually voted with the Democrats to certify election results marred with improprieties and abnormalities.
“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’”
“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.
Van Langevelde received a great deal of support from the liberal media. He also received the backing of the House Republican leadership in the state, who will keep him employed in his cushy role with the party for going along with the façade.
“Aaron has been a very valued member of this team and will continue to be next session,” said Republican Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth of Farwell.
Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield of Clarklake praised Van Langevelde’s betrayal as a great example of “America at work.”
“As we have been saying consistently for weeks, the Legislature will uphold the law and respect this result as it works to improve the process for next time,” Chatfield said.
Van Langevelde works as a policy adviser and deputy legal counsel for the Michigan House Republican Policy Office. He was effectively carrying out policy from his GOP establishment masters when he joined Democrats to betray his oath of office earlier this week.
These are the primary Republicans standing in the way of electoral integrity in the state of Michigan.
