Fox News downplays Women’s Mar on Washington

The 3 categorical wire news networks may have been equal in their wall-to-wall coverage of Friday’s coronation and a festivities, though during Saturday’s coverage of a Women’s Mar on Washington, a chronological order between Fox News and a compatriots had been firmly reinstated.


CNN, MSNBC and Fox News were all dinged by many viewers for selecting to open their Saturday morning coverage with footage of newly minted President Trump during a National Prayer Service rather than a estimated 500,000 marchers. 

But since by midmorning CNN and MSNBC had incited their multi-screened courtesy to a throngs of protesters, Fox, that had drawn a tweet of regard from a boss for a coverage of a inauguration, continued to do only that.

Showing shots of a White House, Fox recapped a prior day’s events, discussed a swearing-in of a secretary of Defense and reported on the Trump family’s bowling in their new Pennsylvania Avenue home.  

As a day wore on and millions marched and rallied around a country, commentators during MSNBC and CNN regularly expressed surprise during a series of people concerned and invited a far-reaching operation of review about what such an eventuality could meant for a country.

For hours, cameras swooped from on high to constraint a sprawling crowds in Washington and other cities while coverage of high-profile speakers including Gloria Steinem, Michael Moore and Sen. Elizabeth Warren was interspersed with conversations about issues of inclusion — a march’s settled height in preference of termination rights left many women feeling uninvited — a detachment of electorate in a new election, and either it was satisfactory to denote opposite a boss who had only taken office. 

Not so most on Fox. Jennifer Griffin reported from a theatre and did lead with live coverage a few times in a afternoon — personification large Madonna’s use of impertinence from a theatre and her matter that she had suspicion about floating adult a White House — though it was a distant cry from minute-by-minute research of a outrageous news event.

Focusing exclusively on Washington, Fox cameras did spasmodic lift behind to uncover a crowd, though there were fundamentally a signature touches — Shannon Bream questioned either a throng estimates were accurate, and Bill Hemmer wondered either it meant that liberals “refuse to accept reality.” 

Even when, after in a afternoon, Geraldo Rivera concurred “the tsunami” of protesters, his co-worker Greg Gutfeld had his talking points during a ready. “The reason we get large marches in cities is that’s where a left lives,” he said. 

Overlooked was that thousands had trafficked to Washington to attend in a march, only as thousands of others had come to see Trump sworn in.
