American TV Channels Interrupted Trump’s Speech on Electoral Fraud
OREANDA-NEWS. The American television channels MSNBC, CNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC interrupted the broadcast of the speech of US President Donald Trump, during which he called the past elections rigged and corrupt, since media considered his words false and unsubstantiated. This was reported by USA Today, which also decided to remove the video of the speech of the head of state from its platforms.
“OK, here we are again in the unusual position of not only interrupting the president of the United States, but correcting the president of the United States,” Brian Williams, an anchor of MSNBC, said, commenting on his actions.
ABC News presenter David Muir noted that Trump’s statement that he would easily win the election if there are no illegal votes needs to be verified.
CNBC host Shepard Smith recalled that for the first time in his 30-year career, he interrupted the head of state. “We've held back from doing so over and over and over while others have. But if any other human being were using our platform of influence to lie to our viewers, we would stop them,” he said.
At the same time, CNN and Fox News broadcast Trump’s speech. However, they stressed that his words are not proven.
