The following article, Sports Coverage Plummets In Ratings While Fox News Conquers Summer Programming, was first published on Flag And Cross.
You’ve probably heard the phrase “go woke, go broke,” in recent years as more and more companies, television and movie studios, athletes, and other celebrities embrace the insanity of Marxist driven political correctness, stuffing their point of view into every piece of content they possibly can.
Nowhere has this been seen more clearly than in the world of professioinal sports. Over the last year, there has been a lack of sports coverage due to the coronavirus crisis. However, over the last month or two, we’ve seen the return of basketball, baseball, and hockey.
And yet, despite our culture starving for sports content, ratings are dropping like stones. Why? Maybe it has something to do with all of the Black Lives Matter bull the athletes continue to push by not standing for the National Anthem among many other things.

Once opening day for the MLB came and went, so did the ratings for the games.
President Trump himself has stated that if professional athletes continue to disrespect America by bowing the knee during the National Anthem, he would no longer watch the games.
At the end of the day, the message seems to be that folks do not want their sports corrupted by politics and used as a means of pushing a liberal agenda down the throats of Americans looking for a small slice of normalicay in this crazy time we’re going through.
