Vice President Mike Pence has recently told CNN News that the members of the coronavirus task force will not appear on CNN anymore unless the network decides to broadcast the entire press briefing.
CNN released a report saying:
Pence’s office, which is responsible for booking the officials on networks during the pandemic, said it will only allow experts such as Dr. Deborah Birx or Dr. Anthony Fauci to appear on CNN if the network televises the portion of the White House briefings that includes the vice president and other coronavirus task force members.
After Trump leaves the podium, CNN frequently cuts out of the White House briefing to discuss and fact-check what the President had said. A CNN executive said that the network usually returns to such programming because of the extensive length of the full briefing that includes Pence, which can run in excess of two hours.
A spokesperson for Pence stated, “When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air.”
Pence’s CNN ban comes as more and more liberal network hosts and personalities are urging their networks to not air President Trump’s briefings. They are saying that everything the president is saying is untrue and if there is something true, they can “run it as tape.”
