Woj “FU” Email Illuminates Far Left Wing Sports Media Hypocrisy

Total137 On Friday morning Missouri Senator Josh Hawley shared a letter he’d sent to NBA commissioner Adam Silver with the sports media. The letter addressed a glaring hypocrisy: NBA players are making pre-approved political statements on the backs of their jerseys, but none of those statements address the billions of dollars the NBA is pocketing ...

  1. It is sad that personal politics/agendas are clearly driving what is being covered as well and the actual sentiment of the coverage. When you come away knowing how the author “feels” clearly journalism has been left out of the equation. I know we are looking at sports in this context, but really a microcosm for all things news/media these days.

    I truly appreciate having Outkick with you, Jason, and your other writers to counter-balance the one sided narrative, ensuring real stories and altering view points are given proper attention.

    Wonder what the likes of Edward R. Murrow or Walter Cronkite would think of today’s climate.

    • Edward R. Murrow didn’t care much for Walter Cronkite. Murrow was the last of a line of great journalists. Cronkite was revered because he was on the air for a long time, but he was the beginning of what we have today.

      There are very, very few good reporters out there today. You have to find them and lock in on them. Outkick has two of the best.

  2. This is a fantastic column. Sums up sports “journalism” in 2020. The difference between the sports media and the news media is that, somehow, sportswriters are even more left than news reporters and sportswriters are some of the dumbest, yet most self-righteous people on the planet.

  3. this is nothing but a attempt by the far left to to try and defeat President Trump. they will stop at nothing. Destruction of the economy with corona fear no problem! Abolishing the constitution and everything our founding fathers were willing to die for no problem! This is the greatest country on earth because ANYONE that is willing to work hard has the opportunity to achieve whatever they desire in this country! GOD BLESS THE USA!!

  4. Great article by Clay. Points out the hypocrisy of the far-left in sports media. Instead of working as real reporters, they are all political pundits at this point. If any person in sports media who’s a conservative acted like Woj to a democrat senator, not only will they get fired, but almost all their left wing colleague would not only call them out but share negative stories about them and try to ruin their lives.

  5. What if the CCP sat on the Wuhan Flu knowledge to re-enable them to do what they did to Hong Kong much easier than they would have been able to otherwise? Would we really put it past them to do something that major just to get their way with one city, as important and [formerly, not for much longer under communist rule] rich as it may be?

  6. The fact that the NBA is making cause statements part of its message is equally absurd. The best way to deal with ESPN, the NBA and NFL is to turn it off which turns off the $$$$. I’d say WNBA, but no one watches that anyway – not much chance to reduce that audience.

  7. If I had the money I would start my own sports network and it would be the most successful on air right now. The basis of the network would be sports all the time. No political talk or sjw causes. If you want to do that go work/watch the other networks. People want to watch sports to get away from all the noise, but here we are getting it shoved down our throats constantly.

  8. CLAY Its not Republicans versus Democrats its freedom and democracy vs communism. BLM is linked to communism. Its all part of the bigger picture to get reed of Trump. He’s in the way of letting billions from China come to USA. Look at all the corporate sponsors that gave money to BLM millions .They all wont the money. NBA is one of many corporation who will destroy America for Chinese $$$$$. No one can defend these practices by NBA another American corporation
    When Question. All They Can Say Is Fuck You America P. S Clay high ranking Republican hate Trump he’s Populist America First
