Sick of ESPN spouting off lib politics? Well, too bad! Editor says despite layoffs it’s not changing

Despite a sharp decline in viewership and a major round of layoffs, ESPN seems not to be getting the message.

ESPN Public Editor Jim Brady doubled down on the network’s intention to stay politically engaged, dismissing claims that the drift “too far to one side politically” is behind the layoffs of more than 100 reporters and on-air personalities on Wednesday.

“ESPN has made it clear: It’s not sticking to sports,” Brady wrote in an editorial earlier this month.

“One thing is clear: Those of you who have not held your tongue about ESPN’s move away from an all-sports-all-the-time mantra also should not hold your breath waiting for a change,” he added.

Brady took to Twitter on Wednesday to brush off criticism of ESPN’s mix of politics and sports as being the reason for its decline and the layoffs.

Forget about “karma,” Brady argued. The exodus of ESPN subscribers and viewers is due to “economics, pure & simple.”

ESPN can continue to stand behind its economics argument but it will find the public begs to differ. Maybe when the network is ready to abandon its “like it or not” method of customer service, it will discover that insight in the real voices of viewers.
