President Donald Trump ripped ESPN on Tuesday night for its plans to not show the national anthem live as part of its NFL broadcasts.
But ESPN is not the only major network planning to go that route.
A CBS Sports spokesperson told USA TODAY Sports this week that it also does not plan to televise the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner as part of its weekly NFL broadcasts, which is the same approach it has taken in recent years.
A person familiar with Fox Sports’ approach said the network plans to show the anthem only during what it considers to be special broadcasts — including on Veterans Day and Thanksgiving and during the playoffs. The person requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.
