CNN To Cut Off Trump’s Remarks During Coronavirus Briefings, Will Only Air Experts’ Statements

Donald Trump has been criticized for sharing false information about the coronavirus during the daily White House briefings. On Tuesday, CNN decided to stop airing the briefings while Trump speaks.

CNN head Jeff Zucker said that he intends for the network to continue covering the briefings, but only when the experts are at the podium.

“We might take it from the top and then cut away after the first lie, and return when the lies stop,” one cable-network producer told The Daily Beast Monday.

“It’s a very difficult decision,” Zucker remarked. “As of now, we are going to continue to carry those briefings.”

When the briefing began on Tuesday at about 5:30 p.m., however, CNN was not airing the briefing. Once Trump was finished with his statement, CNN turned to the briefing for the experts.
