POLITICO SITE SNIFFS OUT MAYNE’S POLITICAL LEANINGS? Could ESPN SportsCenter anchor and network reporter Kenny Mayne, like Keith Olbermann, become the latest sports-centric commentator to assume a beltway-based show with no ratings (and the accompanying gigantic remuneration)?
That may well be a more distinct possibility than you think as right-leaning politico site NEWSBUSTERS claims he is “turning his on-screen appearances into an opportunity to promote the candidacy of a Dem presidential contender.“
“Watching ESPN’s Kenny Mayne over the course of the last few days, I was surprised to notice that he has coined a new call. Home run at a crucial moment? Three-pointer to take the lead in a basketball game? ‘Obama!’, exclaims Mayne.”
OK, maybe I can buy that analysis, but then the kook-conspiracy factor kicks in with this: “This is the second sign that Mayne leans left. He is also a celebrity endorser for ‘Progressive’ Insurance, owned by Peter Lewis, a billlionaire who has donated millions to Moveon.org and other far-left organizations.“
