MSNBC has announced that they do not plan to cover the 4th of July celebration planned by President Trump live. They did, however, mention they may make the decision to show clips of the event.
According to Politico:
President Donald Trump’s takeover of the Fourth of July celebration at the National Mall won’t completely take over the cable airwaves.
MSNBC, for one, doesn’t plan to carry his “Salute to America” live, though the network will assess in real time whether to air clips of the event, a spokesperson told POLITICO.
Fox News is planning to cover “Salute to America” during a two-hour edition of “Special Report,” which airs from 6 to 8 p.m. And C-SPAN is planning to carry the event live, beginning at 6:15 p.m.
CNN representatives did not respond to requests for comment. The network is slated to air “The Situation Room” at 6 p.m. and a special report on the rise of white nationalism at 7 p.m., according to TV listings.
President Trump was inspired by the Bastille Day celebration in France but has drawn criticism for turning a non-partisan event into a partisan one.
