ABC, CBS, and NBC announce they will snub President Trump’s ‘Salute to America’ celebration

Major networks opting to run shows like ‘Jeopardy!’ in lieu of live coverage of the Fourth of July event

Blaze, July 3, 2019:

Major U.S. media networks ABC, CBS, and NBC announced Wednesday that they are all snubbing President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” celebration on the Fourth of July and plan to stick with regularly scheduled shows rather than provide live television coverage of the event.

The Daily Mail reported that the networks will stick with planned nightly newscasts and shows, such as “Jeopardy!” and “Inside Edition,” in lieu of airing the Independence Day event featuring a speech from the president. However, the three networks will offer live footage over its respective online and streaming platforms.

In reporting details of President Trump’s planned show honoring America’s armed forces, CBS News noted the president was carrying forward with the event “despite widespread criticism over the distracting from the holiday.”

The outlet added, “The president’s critics have chastised him for bringing costly military equipment reminiscent of more dictatorial regimes and for placing himself center stage in the typically nonpartisan celebration.”

President Trump was reportedly first inspired to host a patriotic event in America after attending Bastille Day celebrations in France during a 2017 visit.

“Salute to America” will start at 6:30 p.m. ET at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The event will feature a speech by the president, delivered at the Lincoln Memorial as part of the broader Fourth of July celebration in the capital.

C-SPAN will provide live coverage of the event, and Fox News has blocked off two hours for special coverage of the event.

Anything else?

The president has been promoting the Independence Day celebration, which will include concerts, flyovers, fireworks, and military demonstrations from each of America’s military service branches.

WRC-TV reported that during a campaign rally in Florida on Tuesday, President Trump told the audience, “We’re going to have hundreds of thousands of people, we’re going to celebrate America. On July Fourth in Washington, D.C., come on down, we’re going to have a big day. Bring your flags, bring those flags. Bring those American flags.”
