Byron Allen is reportedly looking for a business outside of news media. Allen Media Broadcasting is in various markets in the United States, but now the media mogul wants to take a crack at owning a sports franchise.

According to Bloomberg, Allen is readying a proposal for the Denver Broncos, a move that, if triumphant, would make him the first Black majority owner of an NFL team. 

“NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft came to me in November of 2019 and asked me to take a good look at buying an NFL team,” Allen, chairman, and chief executive officer at Allen Media Group, said in a statement. 

“And after serious consideration, I strongly believe I can help effectuate positive changes throughout the league. And for that reason, I will be making a bid for the Denver Broncos.”

The investor group led by Allen could pay $3 billion to $4 billion for the Broncos, a source told Bloomberg. Allen’s group is expected to have investors from Wall Street, Hollywood, sports, and business. The group would put down approximately 75% of the cost in liquid assets.

Allen became a television producer and afterward founded Allen Media, which consists of the Weather Channel, and almost $1 billion invested recently to obtain 27 local network stations.

Ainsley Earhardt: “I Don’t Know How to Fix This”

“I don’t know how to fix this. But I do know you love your neighbor as yourself,” Earhardt said.

“FOX & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt became emotional when she was talking about the state of the country in the aftermath of the Texas mass school shooting that left 19 children dead. 

In a transcript obtained by Barrett News Media, Earhardt said she longs for a day when the country can return to its post 9/11 state where people seemed to care for one another. 

“I don’t know how to fix this. But I do know you love your neighbor as yourself,” Earhardt said. “That’s what the bible instructs us to do. It doesn’t say “love your neighbor if he or she is a Democrat or a Republican.”

According to Fox News, law enforcement officials said Salvador Ramos acted alone and was killed by a Border Patrol agent who rushed into Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, without waiting for backup.

“Parents, take your children to church. I don’t know what’s going on in these individuals’ hearts, but they have a void,” said Earhardt.

“They have a hole in their heart, and they are evil and they are unhappy. Help them to get help. And I know it’s not always the parents’ fault because the parents are trying in many cases and when there’s mental illness involved, sometimes you’re at your wit’s end and there’s not much more you can do. But I don’t know what the solution is.”

The Texas school massacre that left 19 children dead has left a nation divided over gun control and how politics play a role in the perceived loopholes that allow people to own certain weapons.

On Wednesday’s “The View” co-host Sara Haines shared a conversation that she had with her husband immediately following the deadly attacks. Haines said that it was difficult for her to process the level of grief that she was feeling at the time. She said the nation needs to red-flag laws. The following conversation was published via Mediate.

“We must fight for red flag laws in every state because right now the people that protect guns are protecting it can limit,” said Haines. “Can’t we all agree that people that have a problem and can threaten people should not have a weapon for a period of time?”

Goldberg criticized Gov. Abbott for signing a number of bills that she claims, “made it easier for mass shooters to buy, carry, and own guns in his state.”

 “Let’s apply his abortion laws to guns by deputizing citizens to sue anyone involved in gun violence. So, you sold an AR-15 at the gun show? See you in court. Does your neighbor have too big an arsenal?” Goldberg continued. “Call the cops.”

Senator Chris Murphy appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he discussed the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, leaving 19 children and two adults dead.

Murphy stated on the morning show that “something is dying inside the soul of this nation” when the country collectively permits the massacre of school children to become the norm.

“Something is dying inside the soul of this nation when we accept this as the new normal; when we just decide to become numb because it’s easier,” Murphy said.

“I want people in this country to feel a sense of outrage. That’s the reason I went to the floor yesterday as quickly as I did, because I don’t want people to fall into the sense of complacency.”

Like many parents after Tuesday’s events, Murphy had to talk to their children following the events of the latest school shooting.

“I know that they are sitting in school today talking with their friends about whether their school is next,” Murphy said.

“This is within our power to change. We are human beings with agency. This isn’t inevitable. None of it is. We are dying inside because too many Americans just throw up their hands and say it’s too hard, and the politics are too difficult. Not true.”
