Fox Hollow, FL – While this deals with sports it’s still considered major culture war news by many on the right because of how hard the left is pushing to cover this story up. Seriously, they are working overtime to cover this story up because it exposes that the TV rating system is heavily flawed and in favor of pushing liberal agenda items disguised as sports and entertainment. This is the single largest blow to the libtard agenda since Trump defeated Hillary last November.
ESPN stated that it was terminating 100 employees which consist of a mix of behind the scenes staffers and on-air talent. In short, ESPN is literally cleaning house and is letting go a bunch of key players within the current organization. While ESPN and its parent corporation Disney, didn’t come right out and admit it, ESPN has been steadily losing millions of dollars a year over its low TV ratings which doesn’t make sense because if you google ESPN TV ratings the popular TV rating companies will lie to you and say that ESPN is a top 5 share in the national ratings. Top 5 means that its leading virtually every other TV channel in existence with the exception of 4 other networks.
These same flawed and false TV ratings will point to the NBA, Monday Night Football, and NCAA Basketball as ESPN’s most-viewed programs. Now while NBA, Monday Night Football, and NCAA roundball might well be in fact its most viewed programs, the actual ratings for these programs have been dropping like a rock despite what the false liberal TV rating system says.
Here is where libtard politics comes into play, and like everything ABC-Disney Corp does nowadays, libtard politics is #1 on their list. Even more so than making money and giving viewers an enjoyable product to watch.
Just think of ABC-Disney Corp as the Target or Starbucks of the entertainment world. Just like Target and Starbucks, ABC-Disney would rather die pushing libtardism down the throats of unsuspecting low information consumers than make a profit, and just like Target and Starbucks, who are both a hair away from bankruptcy, ABC-Disney is quickly plummeting down to meet other libtard companies at the bottom of the corporate food chain.
So how is ESPN pushing libtard lies?
ESPN over the past 15 years has made a massive shift away from being the “Sports Leader” to being just another shill group for liberal diversity initiatives. You see around 15 years ago ESPN physically split with a number of non-diverse sports such as NASCAR, NHL, and MMA, and then proceeded to double down on sports that are considered liberally diverse such as the NBA, Soccer of any kind, and College Basketball. This falls in line with the false stats that the liberal minded TV rating companies love to push that claim that the heavy minority based NBA and College Basketball both have higher TV ratings than the non-minority based NASCAR, NHL, or MMA.
This is a lie.
For 20 years between 1980 and 2000, these same TV rating companies made the same claim that the NBA and MLB had higher TV viewership than the NFL. You see during this time frame the NFL was mostly made up of white players with only 30% of the NFL being composed of minorities. However, in reality, the NFL was killing the NBA and MLB in TV ratings, but given that the NFL back during this historical period didn’t fit the liberal diversity standards they used “fuzzy math” to show that more diverse sports with minority participation levels that hovered around 50% had more interest among American consumers.
This is a lie and it’s a lie that continues to be pushed to this day.
It wasn’t until sometime after 2000 when the minority participation levels in the NFL crossed the magical 45% mark that the TV rating companies began to show that the NFL was the most watched sport in America. While I’ve tried to nail down the exact date and time when this change occurred I have been unable to do so because the TV ratings figures are so flawed. At best I can put this change somewhere around 2004-2005.
Meanwhile, in reality, sports like the NHL, NASCAR, and especially MMA have held higher TV ratings than either the NBA or NCAA College Basketball. This is a fact.
In comparison, NBC Sports which acquired TV rights to virtually every NHL regular season and post season game has soared like a rocket, while ESPN has dropped like a rock.
In further comparison, Fox Sports which acquired TV rights to virtually every NASCAR race has gone up to match the success of NBC Sports, while again ESPN is in a death spiral.
In fact, the only thing keeping ESPN afloat has been its contract with College Football. ESPN’s contract with Monday Night Football has done nothing to bring in new viewers because more and more Americans are cutting their cable subscriptions given the ridiculous cost of cable these days. Thus all of the previous MNF viewers have gone over to NBC to watch Sunday and Thursday Night Football for free on regular TV and in comparison again, the viewership ratings for SNF and TNF have destroyed ESPN’s MNF ratings.
The comparison isn’t even close.
Some will argue that ESPN’s failure has nothing to do with NHL or NASCAR being more popular than the NBA or College Basketball… and their argument will be flawed.
Let’s take ESPN and cable TV out of the argument altogether and compare NBA and NCAA College Basketball games on ABC and CBS against NHL games on NBC and NASCAR on Fox. Regular TV mind you… no cable. If you do this you will see that in both cases NBC and Fox have much more ad-related revenue than either ABC or CBS.
It’s not even close.
Libtards can lie till the cows come home about how the NBA and NCAA College Basketball are leading the TV rating charts, but they can’t invent ad revenue which tells the real numbers. Again, in reality, NBC and Fox are raking in millions of bucks from the NHL and NASCAR while ESPN is firing over 100 employees to cover their financial losses for airing mostly basketball, basketball, basketball, rap videos, oh and yes, handing out awards to Bruce Jenner for mutilating his genitals and wearing a dress.
Libtardism doesn’t pay real money.
I personally would love to see every libtard business and TV network go under and out of business and I hope that ESPN keeps drinking its own Kool-Aid so they remain on a collision course with bankruptcy.
