NFL television ratings are down by double-digits this season, which obviously concerns the brass of what is of course is still America's favorite sport. In a memo sent to its 32 teams, the NFL laid out reasons for the steep ratings fall, citing a "confluence of events" but mainly pointing the finger at interest in this year's torrid presidential contest.
But the NFL says it has "no evidence that concern over player protests during the national anthem is having any material impact on our ratings."
Such cause-and-effect cases are difficult to prove, but Rasmussen this month found that nearly one-third of Americans say they are less likely to tune in to NFL matchups because of the National Anthem protests.
Meanwhile, a leftist business reporter--see his Tweets--with the colluding-with-the-Democrats Washington Post, Drew Harwell, didn't even bother mentioning the Anthem protests in his analysis of the NFL ratings drop.
Yep, a business reporter. Does Harwell hang out with Post blogger Greg Sargent?
Leaving out pertinent information in a news report is a sin of omission. Media bias takes on so many forms.
