What NBC Plans to do about Potential Super Bowl Protesting
NBC says they will show any players who kneel during the pre-game national anthem to protest racial inequality.
Game broadcasters showed the protests during the initial weeks of this season but reduced coverage of them later as ratings began to plummet.
“When you are covering a live event, you are covering what’s happening,” executive producer Fred Gaudelli said. “If there are players who choose to kneel, they will be shown live.”
