Shocker! ESPN’s president finally realizes that ‘our fans do not want us to cover politics’

We’ve done plenty of posts here at Twitchy covering ESPN, and not because of the exceptional athletics coverage — the network only catches our attention when one of its emcees says something overtly political and, without exception, radical.

Jim Geraghty over at National Review has written a piece about ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro’s interview with the Los Angeles Times, in which he says, “Without question our data tells us our followers do not want us to cover politics. My job is to provide clarity. I genuinely was of the view that some of our flair was confused on what was expected of them. If you fast-forward to today, I don’t believe they are confused.”
