Going to be interesting to see how the pandemic impacts Australian coverage of Election Day.

They’re obviously going to have to anchor from here and rely on the people they do have on the ground.

Ie: Can’t see Karl in Times Square or Kochie at the White House.

Or will they just take coverage from American affiliates.

So that the coverage can be tailored for the audience watching both networks (eg; talent, content, etc). The main difference though is NBC (like the other broadcast networks + Fox News) only cover the 10pm ET hour of the convention whereas MSNBC is showing both hours

Don’t forget as well that NBC News is (well, meant to be) based towards people in the middle politically, whilst MSNBC is clearly tailored to those leaning left.

Also NBC is a broadcast network, whilst MSNBC is a cable news station! :blush:

…Cooper explaining that the president’s speech was “the most recent greatest hits and false statements.”

MSNBC and Fox News stayed with the address, the first appearance Trump plans to make on each of the four days of the convention this week.
