Trump complains of roll call coverage; nets cut speech off
President Donald Trump points out into the audience after speaking during the first day of the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Monday, Aug. 24, 2020. President Donald Trump complained about spotty coverage of the roll call vote that renominated him as the Republican candidate for president, and some television networks abandoned Trump's informal, 54-minute acceptance speech for aggressive fact-checking. Democrats turned the traditional roll call vote into a well-received television production, with delegates stationed in their home state or territory to proclaim allegiance to Joe Biden. Republicans had 336 delegates a fraction of the normal amount support Trump at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina. Trump specifically complained about CNN and MSNBC, although he also grumbled that Fox News Channel had announcers talking over the vote.
Rough debate performance by moderators a blow to CBS News
(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)NEW YORK, N.Y. – CBS News faced an ill-timed blow to its reputation on Wednesday following a bruising Democratic presidential debate that its moderators struggled to keep from spiraling out of control, although it could take some comfort in the numbers. The Nielsen company reported that 15.3 million people watched Tuesday night's debate in South Carolina on CBS and BET. CBS, which was televising its first debate of this campaign, also had backstage leadership that had not done a presidential debate. “The Democratic debate last night reflected the intensity of the battle for president,” Zirinksky wrote. It was confusing because CBS did not give the entire screen over to the commercial, wrapping around debate graphics and a picture of the venue.
