Via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 01.31.23, Louder with Crowder, Victoria Azarenka shuts down reporter at Australian Open
Way too many sports journalismers want to push their leftist politics rather than report on sports. Covering sports is barely a marginal concern. It's an easy soundbite. Ask an athlete for an opinion on politics they may or may not follow and twist what they say to fit your agenda. Tennis star Victoria Azarenka has better idea. Tell the reporter to suck it.
At issue is the Australian Open and a pro-Russia demonstration. Fellow tennis star Novak Djokovic's father was photographed with some of the pro-Russia protesters. Djokovic, as you know, can't play in America even though he keeps winning tournaments because he won't get the schmaccine. His dad was photographed talking to a Russian. Russia is at war with Ukraine. The story involves all the current things!
Except for tennis. Which is why Azarenka is there.
Lots of athletes are finally catching on that left wing sports media ask them political questions so the left wing sports media members can write their own left wing political opinions. Here’s Azarenka calling that out: pic.twitter.com/w6DqNjPd4p— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) January 31, 2023
