Criticism of ESPN FROM Wikipedia

.


Despite its acclaim and notability, ESPN and its sister networks have been the targets of criticism for some of its programming, including accusations of biased coverage, conflict of interest and controversies with individual broadcasters and analysts. Mike Freeman's 2000 book ESPN: The Uncensored History, which alleged sexual harassment, drug use and gambling, was the first critical study of ESPN.
