Accuracy in Media

Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report gave a sob story about how former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not getting a fair shake by NFL teams after Kaepernick’s national anthem protest rubbed teams and executives the wrong way. The piece claimed that Kaepernick spoke his mind and suffered the consequences of free speech.

However, it also ignored how Kaepernick’s actions turned NFL fans against Kaepernick and he became a lightning rod for controversy when the athlete later wore a shirt with Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro’s face on it.

Also, Kaepernick has earned millions of dollars in salary as an athlete in the NFL, so it is not as if he hasn’t earned money from his athletic endeavors.
