ESPN Lays Off 150 More In Latest Round of Cuts

As ESPN pushes further and further left, they continue to lose subscribers. As a result they have to keep dumping employees. ESPN lays off 150 more.

Per The Gateway Pundit:

The news today, announced by ESPN President John Skipper, brings the total number of laid-off employees to about 250 total for 2017. Is it any wonder more layoffs came when beloved ESPN anchor, Scott Van Pelt, turned political and injected partisanship needlessly into his platform?

Speaking of the employees hit in the latest layoffs, John Skipper said:

We appreciate their contributions, and will assist them as much as possible in this difficult moment with severance, a 2017 bonus, the continuation of health benefits and outplacement services

Reportedly, the employees who were laid off worked in “studio production, digital content, and technology”. Skipper said that ESPN plans to invest in a way to “best position us to serve the modern sports fan and support the success of our business”.

If Skipper were being honest about “serving the modern sports fan”, he would understand that ESPN viewers do not want shoehorned politics in their sports talk. ESPN would do better to avoid anything political and focus on their namesake…

What a rough year for ESPN. Numerous scandals have plagued the network.
