What Happens When Sports Leagues And Sports Media Cross Over Into Politics?

On this episode of Federalist Radio, Josh Kraushaar, National Journal politics editor, discusses the future of ESPN, the NFL, and sports fans.


Josh Kraushaar is the politics editor at National Journal, but he joins Ben Domenech on this episode of Federalist Radio Hour to talk sports. Kraushaar discusses EPSN’s political feuds, Roger Goodell’s biggest mistakes, and the changing genre of sports media.
