Title: ESPN President Thinks Fox News Is Conspiring Against The Network Photo of David Hookstead

ESPN president John Skipper thinks Tucker Carlson, Fox News and Clay Travis are involved in a conspiracy to destroy the network.

Travis broke the story fed to him by sources at a meeting with Skipper in Los Angeles, and the details don’t look good for the sports network.

The Outkick the Coverage founder wrote:
Skipper then attacked me by name, saying that Clay Travis is someone who’s out to get us and is spreading misinformation devoted to destroying ESPN. (I’d love to know what misinformation I’m spreading, since everything I’ve reported about ESPN has proven to be 100% accurate.)

He also attacked Fox News taking shots at Tucker Carlson in particular and pointed out that Fox News is losing even more subscribers than ESPN. (This isn’t actually true of course. Another source inside the meeting said the comment was that Fox News was losing the same number of subscribers as ESPN as opposed to more. But, again, that also isn’t true. ESPN has lost more subscribers over the past six years than virtually any channel).

In a question and answer session someone in the audience suggested “ESPN is being baited by Fox News because Rupert Murdoch is friends with Donald Trump.” Skipper agreed with the premise of the question and endorsed the idea of a right wing conspiracy designed to bring down ESPN to elevate Fox Sports. That’s probably because Skipper and ESPN tried to plant this very story in Sports Business Journal a couple of weeks ago.

(For the record, this notion is patently absurd. I have never met Rupert Murdoch and no one at Fox or Fox News has ever told me what to write or say.)

It is insane for the head of ESPN to be floating the idea that there is a vast right-wing conspiracy hellbent on destroying ESPN. It’s beyond crazy to mirror the rhetoric of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in an attempt to explain why the network is in a downward spiral.

There’s probably a much easier explanation for why the network is heading down the drain, and it has nothing to do with a vast right wing conspiracy. It has a lot more to do with the fact sports fans don’t tune into events to get lectured on political events.

The average NFL fan is tuning into the game to enjoy a couple hours during the weekend, have a couple beers and simply watch some football. Instead of getting straight sports coverage, viewers are now being treated to political teachings instead of football coverage.

Of course, it’s always easier to blame somebody else than just own up to the truth of your own failings.

I was an "average NFL fan"... and I'm not putting any NFL game on any of my TV's. I research the scores on my phone via on-line. Methinks that if you tune into a program on TV, they can tell how many people are watching from their end... so no NFL on the TV for me.

The amount the NFL can charge for commercials, per minute must plunge as the amount of viewers plunge. I'm sure just not tuning in costs the NFL a decent amount of money.

Off locally broadcast TV, they can't.

If you have satellite TV and you don't connect it to the internet ever, they can't.

If you have a smart TV and are connected to the internet, some of them can. Vizio smart TVs continuously monitor an area to the lower left of the screen about 8x8 pixels and continuously send off a stream of info to Vizio's servers. It is claimed they can identify any channel or program just on the basis of that much info. That's pretty credible. I have a Vizio, will not let it connect to the internet ever.

If you have a satellite system connected to the internet or a cablemodem, they can monitor everything you watch and do with your remote. Including things like rewinding your DVR to get a better look at some nice titties in a movie.

And all of the streaming services like Netflix watch what you watch and how you handle rewinds and such. They use it to determine what kind of programming works and what kind they are going to make.

I research the scores on my phone via on-line.

Verizon assigns your phone an ID number which is transmitted invisibly in the HTTP headers. That number identifies you to any website or tracker very reliably. Verizon is the master of tracking and they enable others to track you.

AFAIK, AT&T doesn't do that kind of tracking.

Where I live, there really isn't another choice, just a very crappy indy cell company with overpriced and unreliable service. They're on the AT&T network. Supposedly, AT&T is moving in in a major way next year. I'll be glad to see more competition. Verizon is really scammy and underhanded.

It is not just the games. Try watching First Take. The talk shows are no longer about sports.

Frankly, I can't stand to watch those shows at all. I hate all those people.
