My own view is it’s undermining our values,” Rockefeller said. “I’ll tell you one thing for sure: I think it’s undermining our commitment to education.”

Senate Chairman: 'Culture of ESPN' is 'Undermining our Commitment to Education'

Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., criticized ESPN at a hearing on the NCAA and student-athletes on Wednesday, saying the network was "undermining our commitment to education."

“This country is now so soaked in the culture of ESPN, plus I guess a couple of other stations, and watching football, baseball, world soccer all the rest of it. My own view is it’s undermining our values,” Rockefeller said. “I’ll tell you one thing for sure: I think it’s undermining our commitment to education.”
