Ah-Doyyy: ESPN President Realizes That a Sports Network Probably Shouldn't Be Interjecting Politics Into Every Other Segment

Woke-Broke: The Legendary Journeys.

Jim Geraghty quotes from an LA Times piece on ESPN's president:

"Without question our data tells us our fans do not want us to cover politics," Pitaro said. "My job is to provide clarity. I really believe that some of our 'talent' [ironic quotes added by me] was confused on what was expected of them. If you fast-forward to today, I don't believe they are confused."

I believe these jocksniffers still are confused, but maybe more about their barely-suppressed homoerotic achings for athletes' puds than about their need to provide leftwing color commentary after every fly ball.

Geraghty notes that "some of the most politically-active sports commentators have moved on to other things."

Lesser things. Heard from Keith Olbermann lately?

Note: Keith Olbermann is back at ESPN. Of course.

Keith Olbermann received a talking to from ESPN, his employer, after demanding Mississippi Clarion-Ledger journalist Brian Broom be fired and encouraging an Internet mob to harass a 22-year-old hunter Broom wrote about for the outlet.
