ESPN erases Israel from its list of countries served
ESPN America supplies programs to much of the world. I wanted to check the Israel schedule and to my surprise they dont list Israel in their roster of countries served. Rather they have something called Palestine in there instead. Since when is Palestine a country?
Maybe Im wrong but I dont think the Palestinian Authority has a cable or satellite service of its own. I know their hotels feed in from the Israeli companies. People may have satellite dishes but I dont think the Authority has the infrastructure to bring in ESPN.
In the past both CNN and BBC have been lambasted for their anti-Semitic broadcasting. No one ever suspected ESPN had chosen up sides. This is backdoor anti-Semitism and hardly noticeable but what they are saying if you get ESPN on an Israeli feed, you are not entitled to their schedule. Why because most of us are Jews?
Check out this page. The drop-down at the upper right gives you the list of countries that ESPN recognizes.

I’m sure Obama will get right on it with his buds at ESPN.
Sick. They’ve even got the little “Palestinian” flag that pops up when you select them. Israel no where in sight.
How about this?
I’m in a litte e-mail battle with an ESPN rep, pretending to be unaware.
You can complain by using there “Contact Us” link.
I wish they would get out of the US. I don’t need them.
For aviation navigation charts some countries, those 57 Muslims states Obama claims is the US, also require Israel to be taken off their charts.
I can’t see what you all are looking at. Can you help me out?
So now we have confirmation that some of the folks at Disney are gratuitous Jew-haters.
I emailed a complaint with a few angry words. I’m sure they will get right on it.
But, seriously, this is pathetic on their part.
Barry stated this week that Michelle “allows” him to watch
ESPN every morning when they “exercise” together.
He’ll probably give his buds there a high five.
The link now times out. Removed or very busy?
[So now we have confirmation that some of the folks at Disney are gratuitous Jew-haters.]
Self Jew haters as a Michael Eisner is Jewish.
Forgot to mention current self-loathing Jew CEO Bob Iger.
Roy Disney ousted Eisner 5 or more years ago. Current CEO Robert Eiger is also Jewish. BTW, Iger is married to reporterette Willow Bay.
Hey guys? I happen to be in Israel right now. In Israel, at least, the drop-down feature lists Israel... Flag and everything.
I also get ads in Hebrew on the top banner.
Interesting. So they are playing both sides. Here in the States they do not list Israel but they do list a “Palestine.”
Thank you idov for the information. I have sent a complaint to them.
Does anyone know if they ever listed Israel or is this something new?
This is the value of Free Republic, I would never have known this without the post here by idov.
Here in Israel I notice that I get “Israel” automatically but I can switch to “Palestine.”
Can someone take a few screenshots and post them here?
I despise 169 yards rushing called "a buck 69".
I want pc princess Chris Berman to finally take a crap and stop talking like he's in a perpetual valsalva maneuver.
After following this link and issuing my complaint, I received an e-mail asking for the link to which I referred. I did that and received a follow-up email, proclaiming ignorance and requesting a screen shot....
Well, now...it just so happens...that link doesn’t work any more....
Try it, and let me know....
You have helped me make them look silly in their denial and current lack of access to the site.
I thought it was common knowledge that ESPN is populated with a bunch of liberals. And like their cousins in the MSM, they’re more interested in creating the news than reporting it.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
well....they tell me, they’re on the case...with many thanks to frankenmonkey for posting the critical screen shots!
