‘Filthy puff piece on a murderous dictator’: ESPN might want to rethink this… ESPN is going all-in broadcasting live from Cuba this week with the network televising the game between the Cuban National Team and Tampa Bay Rays. As part of the coverage, ESPN promoted an OTL video from Jeremy Schaap about dictator Fidel Castro and his love of sports, referring to the dictator as a "savior". The piece has been denounced by ESPN fans on Twitter. This isn't the first time that ESPN has dabbled in left wing politics. Last month, ESPN aired a promo in support of the radical extremist group "Black Lives Matter", including a montage of “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” protests, Tamir Rice protests, and pro athletes wearing “I Can’t Breathe” shirts to games. In July, ESPN awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Caitlyn Jenner for bravery, despite Jenner being responsible for vehicular manslaughter earlier in the year.
