Read Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer demand equal airtime to respond to Trump's address by Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy (CNN)
The major television networks said that they will provide wall-to-wall coverage of President Donald Trump's prime time address on border security on Tuesday.

This journalistic decision is sure to be completely ill advised.

I’m very seriously considering any major network that airs this without obtaining the text of the speech in advance and without serious fact checking and without additional rebuttal time for the opposition party in advance.

There is absolutely no credible threat of anything at the border and this play is pure politics. If there were a credible threat, then there should be someone from the Pentagon giving the briefing and it should happen immediately and not tomorrow.
