Coverage Of President Trump’s Live Address Halted By US TV Networks

Fact checked

Several US TV networks pulled the plug on Donald Trump’s live address over ‘concerns’ that the president was spreading disinformation.

On Thursday President Trump made his first public appearance since election night and claimed that Democrats were using “illegal votes” to “steal the election”

Al Jazeera reports: Democratic candidate Joe Biden responded to the declarations in a tweet saying “no one is going to take our democracy away from us. Not now, not ever.”

The US, he continued, “has come too far, fought too many battles, and endured too much to let this happen.”

Trump tried to commandeer the nation’s airwaves after a day when the slow drip of vote counting revealed his leads in battleground states of Pennsylvania and Georgia dwindling.

“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,” said broadcaster MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, as the network quickly ended its live coverage.

NBC and ABC News also pulled the plug on their live coverage of Trump.

After ABC ended its coverage, the network’s White House correspondent, Jonathan Karl, also said there was no evidence of illegal votes.

“What he seems to be frustrated by is … that it takes time to count votes,” Karl said. “It’s always taken time to count votes. But especially in this election.”

CNN kept Trump on the air, but a chyron displayed under him said, “Without any evidence, Trump says he’s being cheated.”

Anchor Jake Tapper looked weary when it was over.

“What a sad night for the United States of America to hear their president say that to falsely accuse people of trying to steal the election, to try to attack democracy in that way with this feast of falsehoods,” he said. “Lie after lie after lie. Pathetic.”

On Fox News Channel, commentators Bill Bennett and Byron York said that just because Trump did not allege specific instances of irregularities doesn’t mean there haven’t been any. But the president and his lawyers need to present evidence, they said.

“What we saw tonight is a president who believes that at the end of the day, when all the votes are counted, the election is not going to to go his way, so he’s trying to plan an alternate route to retain the White House,” said Fox White House correspondent John Roberts.

CBS News’ John Dickerson said Trump’s speech “felt like kind of a deflated recitation.”


  1. The same media that said the Hunter Biden Laptop was conspiracy theory is now telling you there is no evidence of fraud. They certainly have an ego that’s for sure.

  2. It’s obvious that mail-in voting promotes fraud.

    Mail-in voting permits ZERO verification of US citizenship and a lot of states allow same-day voter registration, yet another source of fraud.

    Then there are states that count votes that are postmarked after the November 3rd deadline, or illegally backdated that are also counted in the total.

    3rd world countries have more rigorous voter citizenship verification standards than the US, where biometric data such as fingerprints are required before being allowed to vote.

    Democrats strongholds barred Republican poll watchers from doing their poll watching jobs, another case of heavy handed fraud.

    National voter ID is blocked by Democrats, the party of fraud and lies, using the excuse that it would suppress and intimidate voting, without ever mentioning that it would specifically suppress illegal and fraudulent voting.

    When I myself voted this year, the poll workers didn’t bother to ask me to lower my Covid mask to verify that my face matched my driver’s license.

    A driver’s license is no verification of US citizenship, so even though my face matches my driver’s license, it would have proved nothing.

    2020 is the year that Democrat vote fraud is rampant and systemic and should be the top story of the day, but Trump was blocked from even mentioning it by the seditious Democrat-Neocon hacks in the broadcast media.

    Democrats relied on their illegal and legal alien hoards to tip the scales in favor of Biden, and their fraud should be investigated, prosecuted, and punished severely.

    Ballot harvesting is voter intimidation inside a person’s domicile, and should also be illegal nationwide.

  3. This theft of votes is not against Trump, it’s against the people. We aren’t the people doing something about the fraud?

  4. Course ,it was 3xqcyly as he said ,all of a sudden everything changed Just like ar 213 seats allow australias networks suddenly stopped their coverage excepting the ABC and they chatted about what they’d do on the weekend and rhe weather and what lovely hats they saw this season All totally DIRECTED by the Producers at the top of the heap .The minorities .The elite minority .
