ESPN announced another round of layoffs in an email to employees today, Yahoo reports. The network will cut 150 people, none of whom are on-air staff, in a continued effort to rebuild the network around digital.

Why it matters: ESPN is facing what many other cable networks are struggling with: waning subscriptions, higher production costs and stagnant ad revenues. As the network continues to migrate to digital, it will need to move resources and jobs to better address the new media landscape.

Wednesday's announcement is the latest in a series of major cuts at the network. ESPN slashed 300 jobs in 2015 and another 100 this April. In the memo to employees, ESPN president John Skipper said the cuts are about redirecting resources.

Parent company Disney is in a state of flux after it reportedly offered to buy 21st Century Fox's entertainment assets as cable network revenues continue to sink due to cord cutting. And ESPN's digital future is hazy as it will be forced to battle tech giants for digital broadcast rights. It still hasn't gotten the rights to show NFL highlights for its Snapchat show.

A federal judge early on Sunday temporarily blocked a Trump administration order banning the downloads of the Chinese-owned, global messaging app WeChat.

Why it matters: The temporary injunction means WeChat will remain on Apple and Google's app stores, despite a Commerce Department order to remove the app by Sunday evening.

Bill Clinton slams McConnell and Trump: "Their first value is power"

Former President Bill Clinton on Sunday called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) vow to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's vacant Supreme Court seat before the next presidential inauguration "superficially hypocritical."

The big picture: Clinton, who nominated Ginsburg to the court in 1993, declined to say whether he thinks Democrats should respond by adding more justices if they take back the Senate and the White House in November. Instead, he called on Republicans to "remember the example Abraham Lincoln set" by not confirming a justice in an election year.

Pelosi: Trump wants to "crush" ACA with Ginsburg replacement

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that President Trump is rushing to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg because he "wants to crush the Affordable Care Act."

Why it matters: Pelosi wants to steer the conversation around the potential Ginsburg replacement to health care, which polls show is a top issue for voters, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Trump administration has urged the courts to strike down the law, and with it, protections for millions with pre-existing conditions.
