Networks Ordered NFL Cameramen NOT to Show ‘BOOING’ Crowds



Once again the media is colluding with progressives, just like they did during the election, to push a specific liberal agenda and push leftist propaganda.
Reports indicate television networks ordered NFL cameramen to avoid showing “booing” crowds during the NFL protests, including “take a knee” and “locked arm” stunts, promoting (fake) police oppression and supporting Black Lives Matter.
President Donald Trump’s feud with the NFL erupted nearly a week ago when he demanded that NFL franchise owners should “get that son of a b***h off the field” when they see players kneeling during the national anthem. Since then, league owners have discovered, to their surprise, that millions of Americans – and more importantly, millions of NFL fans – agree with the president, who encouraged them to boycott the league until it agrees to ban kneeling during the anthem.
So far, evidence suggests that fans have heeded the president’s call to boycott the league. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” last weekend recorded its worst weekly ratings in years. Overall, ratings are down 11% from last year, according to the Associated Press.And while mainstream media outlets have insisted that there’s “no evidence” to suggest that the protests have impacted television ratings, at least one survey suggests that there’s a direct link.
In what was perhaps an attempt to obscure this fact, NFL camera operators were instructed by the networks to avoid crowd shots during last weekend’s games to avoid capturing images of fans counterprotesting the protests, which involved both players and, in many cases, team owners, a few of whom locked arms with their players.
Sporting News reports that while some fans cheered the protests, many others responded with outrage. While mics picked up the boos, fans never got a chance to see the jeering fans.
The decision to ban controversial crowd shots was a wise decision by the networks, helping them avoid angering the providers of some of their most valuable programming. But from a journalistic perspective, it was a weak decision.
By covering one of the most significant days in NFL history with rose-colored glasses, the networks cheated viewers. We got an incomplete picture of what really happened in stadiums on Sunday and Monday.
Yes, the main television focus should have been on the players, coaches and owners sitting, kneeling or linking arms. But fans hold the ultimate power over the networks and the league, and they were missing in action during coverage.
Indeed, fans hold the ultimate power over the networks and the league, and they were missing in action during coverage.
