If that was their plan.
Look their 'plans' are shambles and it was rather obvious that such a pathetic 'gambit' is not going to work. The main fail of the Polish major parties is their inability to use think-tanks, work out a strategy, set priorities, asses risk and so on...
The main thing they care is to secure victory in an election and keep up with polls. Their policies are rather random.
Is not that there is no people or even groups that have a very good ideas and they might even push for them but there is no system or organization within a party or a country that would asses and promote them.
Suck up to JK and you are golden.
I would say that there is a lot more issues that need to be addressed in Poland than some TV station. Thing is those old men (mainly JK) in PiS think TV stations are that key they need to ensure their victory in the next election.
You're not going be doing any serious business (with us)
AS IF Poland need it. lol!
Those low key administration workers and their petty warnings ( let me guess the state department - do they have a special office that issues those kind of threats, just curios) - I'm sure they work on morons like those in Polish politicks but in the light of USA agreeing to the north stream, and Poland interest they can just go F themslefses, It is not as if Poland depended on imports from USA or really needed those tanks.
It is a good thing if they won't sell them, a blessing in disguise.
