ESPN Singled Out For Decision Not To Carry Anthem

ESPN is facing backlash for choosing not to air the national anthem portion of NFL football games, but they’re not the only network. It’s the latest chapter in the ongoing anthem protest saga that’s forcing stations to make coverage decisions that could be perceived as political statements.

On this week’s edition of Beat the Press, Emily Rooney was joined by Callie Crossley of WGBH, Adam Reilly of WGBH, former CNN White House correspondent Dan Lothian and Joanna Weiss, editor of Experience Magazine at Northeastern University.
