    Big mass quitting/firing there for being told to avoid politics

    Kind of liked deadspin but the blowing of all those supposedly heroic dudes for quitting on Twitter is hilariously nauseating.

    It's censorship and let's not be hypocritical here. It's wrong on either side.

    Deadspin ed itself.

    They did some analytics or whatever and it showed that their political articles got more clicks but oh well gotta stay woke.

    They had some funny , like the Why Your Team Sucks series, but it was mostly a bunch of unethical liberal blowhards. They’re on the same -tier level as Barstool but have convinced themselves that they’re some elevated form of sports journalism.

    that NY Times story where Deadspin’s editor brags about having Puerto Rican neighbors.

    It's not censorship. Writers are hired to write within a proper scope. If they're interested in being political writers and ditching sports, then that's what they should do.

    It's funny watching these indoctrinated snowflakes and moan because they don't understand boundaries.

    They don't have "freedom of expression" as you put it. They're there to do a ing job, which is to report on sports.

    They were allowed to before. What's changed from the time they did to now?

    You taking the defense approach for every losing battle.

    What changed is they were losing readership because purveyors of sports actually want sports information and not whiny snowflakes crying about politics.

    This isn't a hard one to figure out, Wreck.

    Snowflakes self-cleaned house for them. They don't even have worry about the severances this way.

    I’m sure you’d say the same thing if Clay Travis was told to stick to sports.

    I don't give a about Deadspin, but it's re ed.. what's wrong with growth and covering more topics? Bigger audience, bigger bottom line right? They could have segregated the site by topic instead. Surely there are a ton of writers that have no issue writing about sports exclusively so they'll be back

    The owners can order whatever they want. It's fine that the writers and editors quit instead of following those orders. If Deadspin's previous mix of issue coverage was successful some other source will fill that demand.

    So it should be easy for you to say. You’re even less biased.

    So what’s it gonna be?

    So you’d side with the employer who tells a known MAGA like Clay Travis to stick to sports i respect your consistency.

    Their jealous snark towards any other media en ies got really old. Their obsession with Simmons was a perfect embodiment of the Mad Men “I feel sorry for you/I don’t think about you at all” meme.

    I kinda love that a bunch of dumbasses like Barstool managed to troll them into oblivion.

    I don't know who Clay Travis is; why would I speak directly to his situation?
