Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis says it’s all over for NFL-estranged Colin Kaepernick because of his recent Tweet comparing modern police officers to “slave catchers.” Late last week, a Minnesota jury acquitted St. Anthony, Minnesota, police officer Jeronimo Yanez of second-degree manslaughter charges in the shooting of Philando Castile.
There's an old adage in sports that cheering from the press box is not allowed. However, the Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman is openly cheering for the NFL's power moves to appease left-wing special interest groups.
In this poisonous political climate in America, and in the aftermath of a hateful Democrat's shooting of Republican congressmen, Washington Post sports columnist Sally Jenkins is urging the NBA champion Golden State Warriors to attend a White House celebration and set a civil tone for the nation. She recommends the Warriors show the nation that when we disagree with someone, we shake rather than shoot.
President Trump did not attend Sunday's international soccer match pitting Team USA vs. Mexico in Mexico City, but he was topic numero uno south of the border. Mexican fans made the game a forum on Trump, and they booed loudly and blew air horns during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. However, American media were much more exercised about "homophobic slurs" directed at the USA goalie than the attacks on America, its anthem and president.
Is Jason Whitlock conservative? Colin Cowherd, his partner of Fox Sports 1’s Speak for Yourself, recently told Whitlock he is considered a “Black conservative.” In an interview with Dave Rubin on The Rubin Report, Whitlock reveals he is conservative on some issues and strongly disagrees with some of the key narratives of the left-stream media.

In a vast wasteland of liberal lemmings masquerading as reporters and fair-minded commentators, Fox Sports 1's Jason Whitlock stands apart from the left-stream media sheeple. He's a stereotype-defying Black conservative who tells it like it is. His independence attracts scorn from the PC police, who branded him ''just a n----'' for recent comments about LeBron James.
In a few short months, we’ve gone from sports reporters increasingly expressing liberal bias on social and political issues to liberal sports media empire building. In fact, we are now witnessing the combining of several hard Left Internet sites into one large network.
From the free-speech-if-you-agree-with-us files: Pagans and homosexuals are allowed to have their opinions on what defines marriage, but Christians and pastors are not. That's the message from a badly imbalanced Fox Sports story in which retired Australian tennis legend Margaret Court is harpooned for stating she opposes same-sex marriage.
America’s left-stream media long ignored the human rights abuses of the communist dictator Castro’s Cuba. Astonishingly, for many in the media it was see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil about Cuba. But now Venezuelan major league baseball players are helping to enlighten the media about a socialist dictator’s crackdown in their home country.
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.
