With the NFL declining dramatically in viewership, at least in part due to the stunning embrace of anti-National Anthem antics from fools like 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, it now appears that ESPN has suffered a similar drop-off.

ESPN has been hemorrhaging viewers because of its outspoken politics. From giving Caitlyn Jenner a heroism award to stumping for Black Lives Matter, from pushing gun control to praising Kaepernick’s heroism, from firing Curt Schilling for expressing anti-radical Islam sentiments to threatening Chris Broussard for taking a religious view of homosexuality while doing nothing about Kevin Blackistone for calling the national anthem a “war anthem,” ESPN has become – as I’ve long said – MSNBC with footballs.
