Sports Network Doesn’t Want To Talk About Sports…Fires Hundreds

ESPN Set To Fire 300 Employees, 200 Permanently

ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro has announced that 300 positions within the company will be eliminated 200 will not be filled, as the network looks to cut costs in the face of continuous subscriber losses and the effects of the coronavirus.

Pitaro revealed the news in a memo to ESPN employees Thursday morning:

“Prior to the pandemic, we had been deeply engaged in strategizing how best to position ESPN for future success amidst tremendous disruption in how fans consume sports.” Pitaro wrote. “The pandemic’s significant impact on our business clearly accelerated those forward-looking discussions.  In the short term, we enacted various steps like executive and talent salary reductions, furloughs and budget cuts, and we implemented innovative operations and production approaches, all in an effort to weather the COVID storm.

Pitaro continued, “We have, however, reached an inflection point. The speed at which change is occurring requires great urgency, and we must now deliver on serving sports fans in a myriad of new ways.  Placing resources in support of our direct-to-consumer business strategy, digital, and, of course, continued innovative television experiences, is more critical than ever.”

  1. The problem with zealots is that they don’t care. Jobs are nothing, the agenda is everything. SJWs would rather drive the train over a cliff than have it stay on the tracks, if it means they get to be in charge.

    1. Glen Reynold’s had an excellent article in the NY Post which had this:

      Moral superiority is an addictive drug, and perhaps the most unfortunate legacy of the Civil Rights era is that it got people on the left dependent on moral superiority for their self-esteem. It was easy to feel superior to the likes of Orval Faubus and Lester Maddox, and it felt good.

      But once you become dependent on moral superiority, you need moral inferiors. Thus, every issue must become one of great moral urgency, in which the people who disagree with you are not simply wrong, but actually evil.

      Best description of the SJW mindset I’ve seen so far.
