Trump targets suspended ESPN host over network's 'tanked' ratings

ESPN's ratings have been slightly sinking for a couple of years as sports fans switch from cable to the growing list of streaming services.

President Donald Trump is suggesting the US change its tax laws to punish organizations like the NFL if members are "disrespecting" the national anthem or flag.

Jones, arguably one the most powerful owner in the National Football League, insisted that players need consequences for their actions, adding he is ready to impose disciplinary sanctions on players who appear "disrespectful" to the United States flag and anthem.

When they did, Pence left. "If they don't kneel, some will see them as sellouts".

CNN Money, reporting Trump's tweet, called it "misleading", and noted that while ESPN subscribers are down - to 90 million - "the vast majority of USA homes continue to pay for cable, including ESPN".

Hill had posted tweets on Sunday suggesting that people boycott Dallas Cowboys' advertisers after team owner Jerry Jones threatened to bench any player who disrespected the flag. He and Hill have co-anchored the 6 p.m. show - billed as "SC6" - since February.

No Cowboys player had participated in the protests before the edict came down from Jones, who is friends with Trump and also is one of the league's most proactive owners, including matters of marketing and generating revenues.

'This play always work [s],' she wrote. Change happens when advertisers are impacted.
