So, let me get this straight. According to the Cheeto-in-Chief, we should all show respect to the national anthem. And then there’s this from the Washington Post:
“Fox Sports showed the anthem, sung by Darius Rucker, although it was unclear whether the network would do the same for its 1 p.m. EDT kickoffs. Last week, Sports President Eric Shanks had indicated the network would revert to the usual practice of selling that time to advertisers. The anthem is typically only shown on telecasts on the Thursday night kickoff game and before the Super Bowl.”
So not televising the anthem isn’t disrespectful as long as you’re trying to make a buck from that time slot. Got it.
