Welcome to the newest edition to the Beat The Coverage family — The Andrew Coppens Show.
As a seven-year veteran of the digital sports media world, I’ve become well-versed in the biases, the slanted coverage and the outright lies of the sports media world today. My goal with this podcast is to shed light on bias, outrageous claims and the intersection of sports, media and culture. Our whole goal is to keep sports media honest.
On the first episode I go in depth as to why this podcast exits, my journey here and break down two stories that few seem to want to touch. I’ll dive in to comments made about Trump Voters by Charles Barkley and perhaps the strangest headline I’ve ever seen courtesy of The Undefeated — “The Gentrification of College Hoops.”
Please be patient while we are added to your favorite podcasting app over the next week. But, until next Tuesday don’t forget you can bookmark the podcast page and follow on Twitter at @AndyOnFootball and @BeatTheCoverage.
Episode 4: AOC’s racism of low expectations
Someone once talked about the bigotry of low expectations…and late this past week one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proved that statement more than true.
AOC went full racist while delivering a speech at the National Action Network conference and it’s not in the way anyone else will talk to you about.
She wasn’t the only one lying to you this week, as the media and Howard Schultz himself tells us that he’s a centrist candidate for president. I explain why he’s Barack Obama 2.0 and not a centrist.
There’s also this little thing called the Gender Wage Gap and #EqualPayDay. Watch as I bust that narrative with actual numbers.
Ep. 3: Beto Becomes the Democrats Big Target
If you’ve tuned in to the Sports-centric version of the show, welcome in to the new era of The Andrew Coppens Show. We’ll still be taking on narratives, but it’s all about #NumbersOverNarratives across the world of politics, sports and everything in between.
This show is also a video show, so make sure to subscribe to the YouTube page!
Another week, another big name gets the big target on his back from the Democratic frontrunners for the 2020 presidential nomination. Of course, we’re talking about everyone’s favorite fake-Hispanic, Beto O’Rourke.
The question is, why did they turn the guns on him? Perhaps could it be because what he says and does are two different things?
Also on the show, Jemele Hill goes full SJSW and decides to tell those who don’t live in cities that they can’t lead the United States…all in an effort to say the electoral college doesn’t work.
Episode 10: H stands for hypocrisy
The Andrew Coppens Show is back and as we delve in to the 5 pillars of the SJSW from last time, this week provides us a great opportunity to take on hypocrisy in the sports media.
It isn’t just one side of the cultural spectrum either, as Andrew takes on Clay Travis’ Greg Schiano hypocrisy, the SJSW’s about-face when it comes to Bob McNair and Liberty deciding to hire Hugh Freeze of all people.
Andrew also has a special guest, as Chris Havel of 107.5 The Fan (WDUZ) in Green Bay, Wis. joins to talk his journey through the sports media world, what has changed and how we move forward.
