In the 21st century, no sports free agents have been covered more than LeBron James, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Kevin Durant and ... Colin Kaepernick. The first four are in or headed for their respective Hall of Fame. Kaepernick, a free agent quarterback trying to help Black Lives Matter move the ball forward, gets a ton of press only because left-wing media are using him to advance their own political beliefs.

Speaking on SI Now video, Sports Illustrated's Robin Lundberg said the San Antonio Spurs' players might not show up to play in the NBA's Western Conference Finals if their coach didn't take strong anti-President Trump political stands.

Sports media have now descended to the point where reporters are judging free agent athletes on how well they fit with potential new teams based on their activism. And judging by the strong activism among members of the Seattle Seahawks, the NFC West Division team is a good fit for radioactive activist Colin Kaepernick in the view of SB Nation's Christian D'Andrea.

Our recurring joke - that is itself a ceaselessly recurring joke - is when we mention the “Media-Left,” we always follow it with “please pardon the redundancy.”  The Media-Left merger is now seamless.  I could hand you a New York Times article and a Daily Kos article - and you would be hard pressed to determine which is which (aside from the latter’s propensity for profanity).

As Rush Limbaugh repeatedly points out - the Media are the horse, the Left merely the cart the Media drags along behind.  And the Democrat Party is the inert, inept product in the cart - dragged along by both.

ESPN's determination to dig its own grave continues to move at high speed. On Tuesday, SportsCenter 6 co-host Michael Smith intensely overreacted to the racist actions of a small contingent fans at a Major League Baseball game at Boston's Fenway Park, using what they did to tag every city in America as "racist."

You should feel guilty – white guilt guilty. Because Michael Bauman says “racism is in the foundation of bourgeois white America from sea to shining sea.” And we are a nation of “violent oppressors.” We’re all supposedly guilty.

This week’s avalanche of layoffs at ESPN has been a story in search of an explanation. Some say that a major reason for the network’s financial woes over the past few years has been, as Clay Travis noted, its “absurd decision to turn into MSESPN, a left wing sports network.” The Ringer’s Bryan Curtis, who endorses the recent leftward drift of sports media, thinks that whether or not ESPN is “a liberal network” is “a legitimate and interesting question that deserves examination,” but finds what he calls the “libtard ESPN got what it deserved!” argument shallow, even knee-jerkish.

Yesterday, as Jay Maxson at NewsBusters noted, ESPN laid off 100 on-air personalities. One would think that an awareness of growing financial vulnerability might convince the network to keep its employees' and contributors' most radical impulses in check, lest even more subscribers and/or advertisers get alienated. That certainly isn't happening at ESPNW, the network's women's sports website.

The New York Times is trying to make it look like it's doing everything it can to back away from the tweet it published Wednesday afternoon showing a bogus comparison of the turnouts from the 2015 and 2017 White House appearances of the players and front office personnel of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. In truth, it's doing everything except the one thing it should do.

At this point, it seems that there is nothing the New York Times won't fabricate in the their nonstop attempt to discredit anything and everything associated with President Donald Trump. Yesterday the @NYTSports Twitter account tweeted photos supposedly comparing this year's turnout of Super Bowl champion New England Patriots players and personnel at the White House to the analogous event in 2015. The Times clearly wants those who see the tweet to believe that scores of Patriots players and front office personnel stayed away this year rather than be seen at the mean, evil Trump White House.

Two years ago, skipping the Super Bowl champions’ visit to the White House was an unforgivable sin. This year, with Donald Trump the host and president, the left-stream media has discovered a new morality and boycotting is now the principled thing to do.

By Jay Maxson | April 7, 2017 | 7:47 PM EDT

In the shallow minds of left-stream reporters, accusations of racism are relative to skin color and political identity. Whites and Republicans are assumed to be inherently racist in their DNA. It’s a different story when a member of a minority group utters racist comments.
