The Undefeated, ESPN’s new site featuring sports stories and other content from an African American perspective, launched Tuesday.
Dubbed "the Black Grantland" The Undefeated’s launch date was chosen to coincide with the 62nd anniversary of the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision, which declared separate schools for black and white students unconstitutional.
ESPN's The Undefeated finally launches
ESPN is risking further alienating fans who believe the company has a liberal agenda
Enter The Undefeated, which will tackle complex and delicate issues via a staff you’d largely presume skews progressive and tailored for an audience of similar left leaning beliefs. With Fox’s growing portfolio of live sports rights including NASCAR, baseball, golf, and soon Big Ten rights (all of which skew a bit towards a conservative audience) as well as their conservative tilted news network, it’s not hard to see ESPN bleeding some audience as momentum builds behind the ESPN=liberal narrative that has been gaining traction of late, aided by the noisy backdrop of a presidential election.
