Ex-Prosecutor: Leftist Sports Journalists Use NFL to Push Agenda

By    |   Friday, 19 Sep 2014 06:25 PM

Left-wing sports journalists are using the NFL crisis involving abusive star players to radically change the game of football, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy says.

"There’s a lot of sports journalists who lean to the left even … [harder] than their colleagues on the political beat and a lot of them have had it in for the NFL for a long time," McCarthy said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"They’re making all kinds of moves to try to change the game and change the way it’s played…. When, in point of fact, if you look at it objectively, it’s more of a society thing."

McCarthy, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and author of "Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment," published by Encounter Books — said some want the NFL to pay millions of dollars to be "sprinkled around to, quote unquote, community activist organizations."

"Then they’re going to run into the schools and as [ESPN writer Kate] Fagan put it, reprogram the way we raise men," he said.

"So now it’s not a football thing anymore, it becomes another of the left’s social engineering exercises and I’m glad to see from the polls today that most of the public is yawning at it."

The NFL has been grappling with the public's outrage over its lenient handling of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who punched out his wife-to-be in an elevator, and other players.
