When the dishonest Washington Post assigned a reporter to do a story on the plunging National Football League ratings, (((he))) twisted himself into a pretzel to come up with explanations, while leaving out the two real reasons.

The financial cornerstone of the NFL as it has grown into the nation’s most prosperous and popular sports league has been its network television deals. Pro football has been TV ratings gold, and the league’s handsome reward for that has been contracts with the networks now collectively worth an estimated $7 billion annually.
So when ratings for NFL games slip, even while remaining at comparatively lofty levels, it is noteworthy. Such is the case this season, with the sport’s overall TV ratings down about 11 percent from last season.
“We don’t really know,” said Neal Pilson, a former CBS executive and the founder of Pilson Communications, a consulting firm focused on sports TV. “I can’t give you a specific reason why the NFL’s ratings are down. … It’s very hard to find one reason. It’s not one thing. You have to look at five, six, seven things to figure it out. It’s a confluence of multiple negative factors.”
The factors include:
So many choices: NFL broadcasts, like all other network programming, have faced increasing competition for viewers from the hundreds of channels offered by cable and satellite providers.
Now, more than ever, TV viewership in general faces ever-increasing competition from viewers who choose to watch video on other digital platforms, such as phones, and are not counted in the ratings.
The NFL has acknowledged this trend, striking a deal with Twitter for online streaming of Thursday night games this season that also are televised by CBS and the league-owned NFL Network. But it remains a factor in TV ratings.
“It’s the digital age and you’re seeing the audience become so fragmented,” an executive with one NFL team said. “I think that’s what you’re seeing with the ratings. People consume the product so much differently now.”
The election: Voters might not be particularly enamored with the choice they have to make between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the presidential election. But they are paying attention to such a close and fiercely contested campaign, and eyeballs on news programming cannot simultaneously be on a game.
“All programming is subject to this 300-, 400-channel universe,” Pilson said. “If you’re watching one thing, you’re not watching something else. I’ve been watching the Weather Channel all day. That means I’m not watching SportsCenter.”
A big choice of channels isn’t new. What is new is that the spoiled brat traitorous Negro players have shown themselves to be rats. They can’t be bothered to stand during the National Anthem so millions of Americans (mostly white men, I’ll bet) have voted with their remote control to say bye-bye, you entitled self-absorbed, dumb bastards.
More generally, Negro fatigue is surely setting in. The NFL politicized itself, siding with Black Lives Matter. Thus, the decline in ratings. More generally, I hope that all whites are tired of seeing so many black faces on TV. I also hope they’re tired of listening to the utterances of these moron-level minds.
Professional football demands that the white man worship the Negro. And enrich him by buying NFL products, awarding him lucrative endorsement deals, and buying tickets to games. This wealth transfer is not healthy, even though most black players are broke within a few years of leaving the game that pays them millions.
And let’s not leave out the significant number of Jews that have put their fingers into the NFL pie, despoiling it.
