According to The Hill, CNN and Fox News Channel are planning to air Trump’s address on border security, while the basic cable television networks CBS, NBC, and ABC have not devoted one method or the other.MSNBC has not

made a public remark one way or the other, and the network has repeatedly chosen not to air Trump events before.Trump strategies to

address the nation for the very first time from the Oval Workplace Tuesday night on “the humanitarian and nationwide security crisis on our Southern Border.”

The federal government shutdown over Democrats’ refusal to pass costs for border security is now in its third week.Many media

figures weighed in on social media Monday over the decision.CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted that a “TV officer “told him he was torn on what to do about the address.

” TV officer texts: ‘He calls us fake news all the time, but needs access to airwaves … If we give him the time, he’ll provide a fact-free screed without rebuttal. And if we don’t provide him the time, he’ll call every network partisan. So we are damned if we do and damned if we don’t,'” Stelter posted.

Last week, Stelter used his newsletter to promote the concept of not airing governmental occasions live due to the fact that of Trump’s “lies.”

Glenn Kessler of theWashington Post, among others, pointed out that when previous president Obama provided an address on immigration in 2014, networks did not run it because it was considered too political.

Of note: All four networks declined Obama’s request to air a prime-time address on suggested executive actions related to immigration in 2014; it just worked on cable. https://t.co/Vcm5IwcPZT
