NBC News Tweets About Americans’ World Cup Disinterest Before USA Faces Belgium


By Jordan Chariton Comment

NBC News releases its polling information semi-frequently, but a tweet this morning with poll data regarding Americans’ interest in the World Cup could be perceived as ill-timed, but also highly competitive. Think of it as opposition research, via Twitter. NBC competitors ABC, ESPN, and Univision, have the U.S. rights to World Cup games.

Team USA squares off against Belgium at 4pmET on ESPN… not NBC, or NBC Sports Network, or Telemundo.
