MRC’s Brent Bozell: Drop the Politicization of Entertainment and Sports or Americans Will Tune Out

MRC President Brent Bozell:

“Many people have speculated that it is the liberal politics in sports and entertainment shows that is driving their audiences away. We now have evidence that proves this is true. 75% of likely voters agree that political commentary should be left out of entertainment and sports TV. It is no coincidence that viewership of this year’s Oscars ceremony hit an all-time-low. The NFL and liberal sports networks like ESPN are completely at odds with their viewers’ interests and their ratings reflect it. Perhaps the sports and entertainment industries will finally heed this warning before Americans tune out for good.”
