In an example of two-faced reporting, the sports blog SBNation on Monday declared Abilene Christian University's upcoming first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance "an amazing accomplishment." But its Outsports section (a strident mouthpiece for LGBT pressure groups) considers it "March Badness" when anti-LGBT bigots like Abilene Christian and Liberty University qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Both schools earned "Shame List" designation.
Labeled a legendary Texas sportscaster, Dale Hansen of WFAA TV in Dallas has all the right progressive credentials to win this year's Radio Television Digital News Foundation (RTDNF) Lifetime Achievement Award. Hansen is lauded as a sportscaster who never stuck to sports, and now he joins Tom Brokaw, Christiane Amanpour, Charlie Rose, Bob Schieffer and others as winners of the award. During his acceptance speech Wednesday, Hansen refuted President Donald Trump's assertion that the press is the enemy of the people.
Entertainment media continue to wage war on President Donald Trump and conservatives, with major networks, cable TV, and streaming services hurling insults and ignorant opinions at every opportunity. In February alone, at least 40 separate entertainment programs attacked conservative values and/or President Donald Trump while promoting a hardcore progressive agenda.
Ever since ESPN awarded Bruce for being confused enough to become Caitlyn, radical LGBTQ members and their media friends have moved to squash criticism that praising gender reassignment is insane. Of course, just like the gay agenda before it, trans activists started with demands that they not have to endure “hate,” but it’s quickly become a demand that society celebrates their delusion.
In a Sunday post on her personal website, Martina Navritilova addressed the issue of male transgenders in women's sports for the second time this year. And for the second time, her comments drew outrage from LGBT mouthpieces — including a comparison to Nazis and Joseph Goebbels, by Outsports writer Dawn Ennis.
Jerry Thornton is a New England Patriots' beat writer for the Barstool Sports blog and claims to be a staunch defender of quarterback Tom Brady, Coach Bill Belichick and "all things Patriots." The blog has been accused of sexual harassment and misogyny, so it's not surprising that Thornton would excuse away the recent arrest of team owner Robert Kraft on the charge of soliciting sex. Thornton's fall guy is team chaplain Jack Easterby, who is reportedly leaving the team because of the owner's behavior.
It's indoor track and field season in America's cold-weather climates, and in Connecticut, it's another opportunity for boys identifying as girls to dominate the sprints in state competition. Just as they have in past outdoor seasons. With their bigger muscles, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood (appearing in file photo) finished 1-2 in the 55-meter sprint, dusting the real girls and reigniting the debate about the claims of unfairness that retired tennis star Martina Navratilova got pilloried for recently.
Pardon the interruption, Tony Kornheiser, but isn't your show of the same name supposed to be about sports, and not a platform for you to promote Democrat candidates? Yet in the closing segment of yesterday's PTI, Kornheiser managed to work in a plug for Mark Kelly, a Dem candidate for senator from Arizona. Kelly is the husband of former Dem Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Kelly and Giffords became prominent gun-control advocates after she survived an assassination attempt in 2011. Kornheiser wished Happy 55th Birthday to Kelly and his twin brother Scott, then added: "Mark Kelly is running for the Senate in Arizona."
Media reactions to Friday's settlement by the NFL on the collusion suit brought by Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are pouring in. The former NFL player Kaepernick and the current player Reid are expected to reap a windfall in exchange for ending their attempt to prove the league owners colluded with one another to keep them out of the NFL. The most outrageous reaction came from SB Nation's Harry Lyles Jr., who saw a racist element in the settlement that other media missed.
When Colin Kaepernick knelt during the playing of the national anthem, his media apologists assured the public it was purely a matter of free speech. But media are singing a different tune today, because when Republicans in the Wisconsin Assembly objected to the inclusion of Kaepernick's name on a Black History resolution it was not a matter of expressing free speech rights. White Republicans had erased him, spiked him and stripped him from Black History Month.
Raising a red herring, Detroit Free Press columnist Shawn Windsor bemoans that if woman-beaters like Kareem Hunt are allowed to play in the NFL, then Colin Kaepernick should be allowed to play, too. The argument isn't if a woman-beater can play, then why not Kaepernick? The better point that Windsor badly misses is no owner has an obligation to employ any athlete who has crossed a line of incivility.
Outsports is the LGBT blog of SB Nation, and it's like an online version of the newspaper society page that, instead of reporting engagements and weddings, announces which athletes have come galloping out of the closet. Outsports writers are always ecstatic to report on athletes—like British horse racing jockey Jack Duern—who have revealed they are either lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Duern's story is a real treat for Outsports' writer Jim Buzinski because the gay jockey has found acceptance in his sport AND he uses drag as an outlet!
