CNN, MSNBC did not air coverage of Amy Coney Barrett confirmation
CNN and MSNBC did not air Monday night’s Senate confirmation vote for Amy Coney Barrett, a historic moment making her only the fifth woman to sit on the Supreme Court.
The two cable channels did not cover the 52-48 vote in the Senate, but CNN aired the swearing-in ceremony later at the White House by Justice Clarence Thomas, Fox News reported.
CNN’s coverage of the swearing-in was framed in the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus and likened the White House ceremony to a “super-spreader” event, like President Trump’s announcement last month that he selected Barrett as his nominee in an event in the Rose Garden.
CNN ran a banner during Monday’s ceremony that read: “TRUMP SUPREME CT NOMINEE ABOUT TO BE SWORN IN AT WH AT ANOTHER POTENTIAL SUPERSPREADER EVENT.”
Fox News covered the confirmation vote in the Senate and the swearing-in ceremony later at the White House.
