The Stats Are In: ESPN’s Political Push Cost Them HOW MUCH?!

With Donald Trump in the White House, the nation knew that all of the focus we could muster would likely be sent that direction.

With Donald Trump in the White House, the nation knew that all of the focus we could muster would likely be sent that direction.

Not only was Trump a bold and unorthodox choice for the highest office in the nation, but as a boisterous figure who’s fond of Twitter, the media truly had no choice but to pay attention to him.  If they didn’t, he could simply put out 140 characters that explained why they should be, and that would be the end of that particular conversation.

But does that mean that ESPN had to jump on the political “resistance” bandwagon?  A plethora of Americans think not, and they’ve demonstrated their displeasure with the formerly sports-specific network by cutting the figurative cord in 2018.

According to Disney’s recently released annual report, sports network ESPN has lost 2 million domestic subscribers over the course of 2018.

Disney’s report revealed that the company’s sports network, ESPN, currently has 86 million subscribers. This is down two million from the 88 million subscribers to the sports commentary and news station in 2017.

ESPN wasn’t the only Disney-owned network to lose subscribers this year: The Disney Channel went from 92 million subscribers in 2017 to 89 million subscribers in 2018, while Freeform fell by two million subscribers to 90 million, and Disney Junior and Disney XD both lost approximately three million subscribers.

ESPN’s troubles began nearly three years ago when they fired MLB legend and commentator Curt Schilling over his personal tweets on the subject of transgender bathrooms.

Americans, Still Trapped in Afghanistan, Plead with Biden Administration

The trouble in Kabul continues…

Published

Just because the news cycle is short and forgetful doesn’t mean that conditions are improving in stories that have fallen to the wayside.  This is just the new human attention span, and the marketing industry’s ability to hone in on the speed needed to stay ahead of your own thoughts.

And so, despite the unwillingness of the mainstream media to speak on the subject, there are still American citizens trapped under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, begging to be brought home.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on Thursday released a letter to President Joe Biden penned by an American citizen from San Diego, California, who is still trapped in Afghanistan alongside his wife.

“I am pleading with you again as a fellow proud American and as a husband to help my wife and I get home from Afghanistan,” the American citizen wrote in the October 15 letter to President Biden, weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.

Their tale is harrowing.

The American explained that he and his wife risked their lives to get through Taliban checkpoints, only to discover that the October 4 flight was canceled “because passengers did not have visas for UAE, where the flight was to land.” Another flight left on October 11, but the American said they never received a call to go to the airport.

“The third scheduled for 13 October was apparently cancelled. We learned details of the latter flights from our Congressman, the Hon. Darrell Issa, who flew to Doha to meet us, and not from the DOS,” he continued, explaining these were not their only attempts made since August.

President Biden promised that US forces would remain in-country until each and every American can get home safely, but then abided by a Taliban deadline to evacuate, abandoning a great many Americans and our allied partners.
