So many folks have cut the cord because of ESPN's liberal bias and now magically they want all forgiven by silencing the voices that got them in that mess in the first place.

No matter how many zippers you put on your liberal faces your liberal views have already been broadcast out there for the world to hear. ESPN we heard you loud and clear and we cut the cord. Now you're hearing us loud and clear by trying to silence your help. We learned to live without you ESPN. Nice try though.

He who laughs last, laughs the loudest. ESPN now you are hearing our voices loud and clear.

Good luck and GO YANKEES....!

New ESPN guidelines recognize connection between sports, politics

ESPN has issued new political and election guidelines for its employees that, while allowing for political discussion on the network’s platforms, recommend connecting those comments to sports whenever possible. The new policies also provide separate guidelines for ESPN staffers working on news and those engaging in commentary.

The timing of the release of the election guidelines is a bit unusual -- such guidelines are rarely released right after a presidential election; they’re usually updated near the beginning of a presidential campaign. But we are living in unique political times, which ESPN apparently recognized, which explains the revised guidelines for discussion of political and social issues.

“Given the intense interest in the most recent presidential election and the fact subsequent political and social discussions often intersected with the sports world, we found it to be an appropriate time to review our guidelines,” said Patrick Stiegman, ESPN’s vice president of global digital content and the chairman of the company’s internal Editorial Board, which drafted the new guidelines.

Yeah, I can hear it now...

"And it goes RIGHT through the uprights!  Score now 13 to 14!  And speaking of moving the goalposts, have you heard the latest announcement from the Trump administration?"

No thanks. I wasn't an ESPN fan BEFORE they decided to kiss Stalin's mummified ass.
