I disagree that political views or left leaning bias has driven people from ESPN. It comes down to millions few cable subscribers which in turn drives down advertising revenue. ESPN made money on every cable subscriber regardless of whether they watched ESPN. They were able to demand that their channel was part of even basic cable.

ESPN is also a victim of an every shortening attention span coupled with a desire and opportunity to have immediate news driven to a person's phone. One used to have to rely on Sports Center to get the days sports news. Now it hits your phone via Twitter within minutes of it occurring. Many people (especially younger ones) are less willing to sit and watch a 30 or 60 minute show like PTI.
