Sports Battles

Andrew Wallenstein says ESPN has missed an opportunity with Jemele Hill. Some execs at ESPN reportedly think Fox is helping to target it. Conor Friedersdorf explores why ESPN has gotten more political, while Amanda Lotz tells us that ESPN's subscriber declines are rooted more in industry than politics. Phillip Swann points to ESPN-Altice carriage negotiations as a potentially huge issue.
