ESPN Misrepresents Results from Their Own Poll Which Shows That Fans Are Sick of Anthem Protests

Written by  Warner Todd Huston

The basic math of this story is easy to follow: ESPN conducts a poll on anthem protests, ESPN doesn’t like results of the poll on anthem protests, therefore ESPN deliberately misrepresents the results from the poll on anthem protests.

With its new Global Strategy Group poll, ESPN states that Americans “are divided in their attitudes” about the NFL’s protests during the playing of the national anthem. However, far from “divided,” many of the results find Americans far more united in their negative feelings about the protests.

The poll found that a lopsided majority disapprove of the anthem protests, with 51 percent either somewhat or strongly disapproving of the anthem protests, while only 39 percent approved. If this were a political poll, a 51-39 disparity would be called a definitive, and direct statement. Even a predictor of certain electoral victory.

Moreover, had the poll found that 51 percent of people approved of the anthem protests, this poll would have been celebrated and paraded on every show across every platform ESPN has.

Yet, because this result doesn’t fit ESPN’s narrative, the results get described as “mixed” or “divided.”

Another strong result was seen when the poll asked respondents whether the protests made them more or less interested in watching football.

Then they should access other data which shows the National Sport Leagues have been in a downward spiral since about 2007 loosing 4.5% yearly, for various reasons, but the economy being the biggest next to over pricing and data shows that the kneeling has had little to no effect on attendance or viewing, many dislike it but are still going and viewing, in fact last week attendance rose 3% over forecast attendance based on records. When an over whelming percentage of persons do not want the players punished for their actions then that is an indication that they are not that upset about the kneeling, the majority say they do not approve and at the same time say they do not want the players punished for doing it. It is their right under no less than 6 Supreme Court rulings as part of free speech in a public place, called free expression.
