How in the world can CNN and MSNBC claim they’re news networks when they did not air a single second of the Senate confirmation vote for Amy Coney Barrett, a historic moment making her only the fifth woman to sit on the Supreme Court.

The two cable channels did not cover the 52-48 vote in the Senate, but CNN aired the swearing-in ceremony later at the White House by Justice Clarence Thomas, Fox News reported.

CNN’s coverage of the swearing-in was framed in the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus and likened the White House ceremony to a “super-spreader” event, like President Trump’s announcement at an event in the Rose Garden last month that he had selected Barrett as his nominee.

CNN ran a banner during Monday’s ceremony that read:

“TRUMP SUPREME CT NOMINEE ABOUT TO BE SWORN IN AT ANOTHER POTENTIAL SUPERSPREADER EVENT.”

Fox News covered the confirmation vote in the Senate and the swearing-in ceremony later at the White House.
