Leftist media outlets plan to cover the anniversary of January 6, 2018, the Capitol Hill Riot. This is in an attempt to promote the Democratic Party’s agenda regarding the Federal Takeover of Elections and also hype an anti-Republican narrative before the 2022 midterm election. Network hosts announced on Wednesday that they would be anchoring live from Washington, D.C., and cable networks promised hours of coverage.
“You’re going to be live from the nation’s capital tomorrow, right?,” TodayCraig Melvin made the comment Wednesday morning to Savannah Guthrie, co-host of the show. Guthrie proudly confirmed: “Yeah, heading to Washington later today and we’re going to take an in-depth look at the insurrection one year later. We’ll talk to Capitol Police officers who faced down those rioters and Congresswoman Liz Cheney, the Republican Vice Chair of the House committee investigating the day’s events will be our live guest.”
Over on ABC’s Good Morning America, co-host Robin Roberts urged viewers to tune in for a day-long marathon of coverage (8:00 am to 7:00 p.m.) on the network’s streaming channel: “And we invite everybody to tune in to ABC News Live tomorrow as we are looking at the attack on the Capitol one year later.”
CBS MorningsTony Dokoupil was excited to announce his plans to celebrate the occasion as co-host.
Reminder: Tomorrow is tomorrow CBS MorningsWe will be covering the 6th of January anniversary in detail.We are here one year later. I’ll anchor from the Capitol and our reports will take a closer look at the attack and also the investigation that followed, an ongoing investigation. We’re going to hear from Americans whose faith in our democratic institutions themselves have been shattered.
Fellow co-host Gayle King couldn’t wait: “I’m so glad you’re going to be there. Because a year later, Tony, there’s still so much more to this story, so much we still don’t know. So many questions.”
Later anchoring the 11:00 a.m. ET hour show on MSNBC, Melvin made it clear how partisan the media spectacle would be. Melvin stated how politically charged the ET hour MSNBC show would be.
We will also have special coverage tomorrow to commemorate one year of the attacks on Capitol Hill and attempts to destroy our democracy. Our coverage will include a look at the Republican Party’s role in the eventsDeadline: White House will also cover the aftermath, as well as live coverage from the Capitol steps prayer vigil. That’s going to start at 4:00 p.m. Eastern here on MSNBC.
You can hear the sensational graphics onscreen: “Insurrection in America: Democracy in Peril.”
CNN did a better job than all the others by airing an extremely-produced promo during its conference Neue DayThis trailer looked more like a movie trailer rather than a note on news programming about the prime-time special between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. Breathlessly, the announcer exclaimed:
CNN Exclusive: CNN Insiders at the U.S. Capitol, January 6, 2006. Leaders, legislators, and police all fighting for accountability. A remarkable gathering with untold stories. And what should happen next in order to preserve democracy.Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper host Live From the Capitol: A Year Later. Tomorrow, at 8.
Given the media promotion of the day like it’s the Super Bowl, viewers can likely expect more partisan histrionics than fact-based substance in the deluge of coverage.
