Just when you thought this NBA/China thing could not get any more disgusting, ESPN (who is reporting from China this week) opened their 7am Sportscenter today by showing a China-supplied graphic of China that included the 9-dashed-marks indicated the South China Sea is a part of China, something that is heavily disputed.
Is this really what being "woke" has become?
Wow seriously? Corprotocracy has really out flanked national soeverignty.
This wasn't a simple mistake by ESPN. What it shows is that the Chinese have a straight line right through ESPN production/editorial to control the messaging.
ESPN is 80% owned by Disney
This seems about right
Ah, those were the days my friend -- 1983 meets 2019
The Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper just called this app “poisonous”
ESPN, which used to celebrate players wiping their rear ends with the US flag, has quickly become a propaganda wing of the Chi Coms
"A darker truth is now dawning on the world: China’s economic miracle hasn’t just failed to liberate Chinese people. It is also now routinely corrupting the rest of us outside of China."
Opinion | Dealing With China Isn’t Worth the Moral Cost
The Rockets played a preseason game in China today -- was supposed to be broadcast live at like 5am -- NBA TV took it off
And, at and near the arena, they removed all Rockets logos and even painted over the team name on signage. They also denied the Rockets access to the gym for practice. They had to find a school tthat let them use their court.
Their mission failed as the arena was packed, despite the fact that there was no advertising and all the sponsors withdrew. The CCP had been pushing a narrative that this backlash is all about the people. The attendance here showed that to be false
This is just overkill. Really?
No one questions the party line. Get in line or get shot. Been to China? I have - 30 times.
All for one line of one tweet that basically said "I favor democracy"
No one should be surprised. This is what Communists do.
My gosh, a Dem with some balls
Is it really that brave though? I mean come on.
He must not have a deal with Nike
Word is they are the real power behind what is happening here, at least from the players' side of it
Trying to play capitalism with a Communist dictatorship always ends in fascism. Fascists don't let the corporation under their control do or say just anything.
Kerr digs hole deeper
Claims moral equivalence between the US and China
What a creep
Steve Kerr is a Communist apologist. That display of false moral equivalence between US crime and government censorship, murder, concentration camps, etc. is disgusting.
I hope his back gets worse.
Yet in the United States he is free to express his opinion criticizing the government but in China he doesnt dare criticize the government. I'd love to hear his explanation of equivalence there.
Or if he can define irony
What a fuckin douche.
Wonder what the WAPO got for this one?
(Democracy dies in what?)
