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.
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.
The prolonged free agency of cop-hating, baggage-toting quarterback Colin Kaepernick has prompted the formation of a new sports fantasy game. It’s best played by race-baiting, left-stream talk show performers who have the unique ability to read the minds of NFL owners and general managers.
Could Jim Leyland be any different from Colin Kaepernick?
Last night, Team USA dominated Puerto Rico 8-0 to win the World Baseball Championship for the first time. Leyland, 72, the Hall of Fame-bound manager and baseball lifer who came out of retirement to manage the U.S. team got emotional in a post-game interview.
Stripped of NCAA Tournament basketball games because of its new public bathroom law, the State of North Carolina bore the brunt of heavy criticism Thursday from well-known sports figures. The law requires people to use the public bathroom of their birth gender. Conservatives say the law is needed to protect women and girls from predators, but LGBT activists want people to be able to choose their restroom based on “gender identity.”
Let the seller beware. Buyers aren’t buying what they’re offering. I’m speaking of sports reporting. Sports writers jumping into the realm of the political are admitting that much of the public disagrees with their hard-left editorializing. But they are stubbornly turning up the volume and focusing on Trump-bashing and supporting illegal immigration, the transgender movement, Black Lives Matter and other left-wing causes.
There is no shortage of media criticism of professional athletes, but David Fleming’s ESPN.com attack on Tim Tebow has re-written the standards of mean-spiritedness. In a post dripping with malice, sarcasm and anti-Christian bigotry, “Tim Tebow’s relentless pursuit of failure,” Fleming has taken Tebow Derangement Syndrome to a level not previously thought attainable.
“Today, sports writing is basically a liberal profession, practiced by liberals who enforce an unapologetically liberal code." -- Bryan Curtis, The Ringer. That’s the first honest thing a liberal sports writer has said this year. The writer busting on Curtis and his fellowship of left-wing media comrades is Michael Brendan Dougherty, a self-described “conservative” writing for The Week.
Super Bowl commercials are known for being creative, funny, and sometimes controversial, but T-Mobile’s BDSM-themed commercials took the game day ads to a weird new level. Sunday night, two T-Mobile ads compared Verizon customer experience to BDSM during the 2017 Super Bowl. The ads were meant to reflect the controversial (and media-hyped) BDSM-themed movie 50 Shades of Grey and its sequel 50 Shades Darker set to be released Feb. 9.
If you just crawled out from under a rock and turned on Fox last night, you might have thought you were witnessing a presentation sponsored by the United Nations, instead of the Super Bowl. We weren’t treated to “We are the World,” but there was no shortage of advertisements pressing Americans to go the way of the world.
