ESPN long ago decided to be a left-wing sports network.
It cost them millions of subscribers and dollars.
And now ESPN got called out for one ridiculous lie about Black Lives Matter that instantly blew up.
During the George Floyd riots of 2020, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace wanted attention and claimed someone hung a noose in the stall where Wallace stored his car.
This created a national scandal and woke NASCAR executives immediately jumped to Wallace’s defense and Wallace’s fellow drivers didn’t know any better so they marched with Wallace in a show of unity.
But it was all a lie.
The FBI investigated the matter and found the supposed “noose” was just a normal rope used to open and close a garage door and it was in place long before Wallace used that stall.
“The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall,” NASCAR’s statement on the matter read. “This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment.”
This ended up being just another hate crime hoax like Jussie Smollett.
18 months later, ESPN announced it would produce a documentary on the entire event and sent out a tweet claiming Wallace found a noose in his stall and Wallace’s fellow drivers rallied to his side.
Last year, a noose was found in Bubba Wallace's stall at Talladega Superspeedway. The next day, the NASCAR community stood with him in unity.

The corporate-controlled media is always up in arms over “misinformation” on social media, but all the fact-checkers and “misinformation” reporters who parse through every comma and syllable that conservatives write had no problem with ESPN blatantly lying about the entire Wallace episode.
