ESPN has been declining for years after they decided to start covering politics during their sports broadcasts.
In a recent announcement, it was revealed that the ultra-liberal MSNBC is now sponsoring ESPN.
“‘SportsCenter,’ brought to you by MSNBC — because information and facts have never been more important,” stated the narrator.

Conservative Tribune reports:
The irony is stunningly and laughably rich, since MSNBC’s relationship with the truth is practically nonexistent. As a reminder, this is the same inane network whose hosts blamed President Donald Trump for the poverty and despair in socialist Venezuela.
lus, this unholy alliance between ESPN and MSNBC was formed only weeks after ESPN eliminated at least 100 “on-air” personalities and “SportsCenter” anchor Linda Cohn admitted that the network’s focus on politics was probably to blame for its financial woes.
“That is definitely a percentage of it,” Cohn said in an interview earlier this month when asked whether politics were responsible for the layoffs. “I don’t know how big a percentage, but if anyone wants to ignore that fact, they’re blind.”
That settles it — the decision-makers at ESPN are clearly blind.
PJ Media contributor Jeff Reynolds commented on the direction that ESPN is heading, “This mind-boggling affirmation of the political direction of the company comes at a time when it is in financial freefall, calling into question the decision making of the company’s executives.”
And it appears that ESPN’s bad leadership has resulted in the company hemorrhaging around 10,000 subscribers per day.
Reynolds noted that another major reason for ESPN’s decline is the fact that the majority of their viewership comes from Trump supporters.
Do you still watch ESPN, or have you given up on the network in the age of streaming?
