WASHINGTON (PNN) - September 2, 2022 - Several major broadcast networks ran reruns instead of carrying pretender Joe Biden’s Thursday evening speech in which he characterized “MAGA Republicans” as a threat to democracy.
Biden called large swaths of Republican voters “extremists” and accused them of “fanning the flames of political violence” in his Philadelphia speech, which focused heavily on President Donald Trump. ABC, CBS and NBC chose other shows over the speech, and Fox ran Tucker Carlson Tonight. MSNBC and CNN ran the Biden speech.
“There’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans; and that is a threat to this country,” Biden said. “MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies. Together, we can choose a different path.”
NBC ran a Law & Order rerun, CBS played a Young Sheldon rerun, and ABC ran Press Your Luck.
