ESPN Runs Puff Piece on Fidel Castro, Gets Roasted

The Obamas are now in Cuba, and ESPN SportsCenter probably thought they would get into the swing of all that kumbaya swirling around the first couple’s visit to that island prison paradise.

So ESPN posted a puff piece video on how dear Uncle Fidel might have been a tad bit oppressive, but the old boy sure did love him some sports! After all, Cuba didn’t win any Olympic games until 1972, when Fidel was at the helm! So Fidel was good for Cuba!

ESPN also tweeted out an equally fawning comment. However, after catching all sorts of flak for the tweet, ESPN deleted it, but, as usual, the internet is forever. Here’s a screenshot.

Well, surprise, surprise — lots of Americans didn’t feel the love ESPN has for Fidel. Here are comments from the ever-witty and ever-caustic David Burge at @iowahawkblog:

Others chimed in as well.

One wonders if ESPN were around in 1936 they would’ve been “honored” to co-produce this propaganda film with Leni Riefenstahl.

Forget Godwin’s Law. Sometimes the reference to a certain genocidal dictator with a funny mustache is the perfect demonstration to show what jackwagons the liberal media can be.

    I honestly believe our country is infected with a virus deadlier than Ebola and scarier than Zika (which, honestly, always make me think they’re talking about a clear malt beverage for the hipster set), and it affects the mind and soul. It’s called statism.

    My congress critter Emmer is accompanying Ol’ jug Ears on his Cuba propaganda tour.
    I sent Him (Emmer) a nastygram with my feelings. Terse but civil, I’ll wait and see how he spins it.
