There is more bad news for ESPN, an important part of the Walt Disney Company and the newest strike against the sports company comes at a time when leftist mainstream media is taking a beating.
ESPN is an American international basic cable sports channel owned by ESPN Inc., owned jointly by The Walt Disney Company and Hearst Communications. The company was founded in 1979 by Bill Rasmussen along with his son Scott Rasmussen and Ed Egan.
And now ESPN is being exposed for breaking all of the rules that the left says is so important to them- so this expose is going to lead to massive trouble- right? Like, cancel culture trouble.
James O’Keefe, the president of Project Veritas released the following statement today:
Project Veritas released a new undercover video today recorded within ESPN that revealed what appears to be a workplace environment full of toxic racist tension.
Check this out:
Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:
- Whistleblower-recorded audio and video show numerous ESPN employees discussing what they see as a toxic, racist workplace environment which directly contradicts the image that ESPN tries to project.
- In one clip, a black studio operator discusses, “the racial shit that happens in here all the time.” In another clip, a black woman working as an audio communications specialist says “that’s not how it is” when addressing the difference between ESPN’s workplace environment and social justice image.
- On-air talent Alyson Lang, who covers the SEC for ESPN: “I know the comments that have been made to me at work and the conversations that have been had in front of me at work, like, I mean just blatantly racist sh*t. Just blatantly, like, complaining to me that we have three white hosts, and I’m like, ‘What do you want me- do you want me to leave?’”
- On-air talent Matt Schick, who’s been with ESPN since 2012, said, “It has different connotations now,” when talking about what it’s like to tell people he works for ESPN. In the next soundbite, he calls ESPN, “a global entity of forced thought.”
- The whistleblower, ESPN Studio Operator Trevor Adams, sent a company-wide email outlining these concerns and was subsequently identified by the company as a “threat” which resulted in law enforcement being sent to his home. He was terminated soon after an attempt from Project Veritas to obtain a comment from Human Resources.

What is going on inside ESPN?
With just days until the Super Bowl, sports fans should get answers from the Disney-owned network. Better yet, ALL Americans deserve answers on this.
ESPN is a longtime cornerstone of the Walt Disney Co., continues to lose lucrative pay-TV distribution, shrinking another 10% to end fiscal 2021 at 76 million U.S. households.
Citing Nielsen, Disney provided the number as part of its annual report, filed with the SEC this afternoon. The company operates on a fiscal year, so its 2021 officially ended on October 2.
The company said the Nielsen-based estimate includes traditional MVPDs and most digital OTT packages. The tally is well below ESPN’s peak of just north of 100 million homes nearly a decade ago. While all linear TV networks are shedding subscribers due to cord-cutting and growing tension with distributors over carriage fees, the ESPN number has become a bellwether.
