Really dangerous ground if the prime time address in question is about a “crisis” that does not exist.

show the speech with the list of lies on one side- when he hits one of them it can light up or a bell can sound. (I kid, but not that much)

When the President of the United States asks for TV airtime for an Oval Office address, networks will (and should) air it.
There is no explicit or implicit endorsement of the president's views in that decision.

The latest – CNN, Fox, Fox Biz have agreed to air Trump. Broadcast nets still deciding https://t.co/rx5bxVZISt

Update to the update: NBC, ABC, and CBS will all carry Trump's address Tuesday night. Wall to wall coverage of his pro-wall speech. Hopefully surrounded by fact-checking. https://t.co/ttRKY7xVWG

Should the TV networks air the president's prime time address Tuesday?
Networks face pressure on whether President Trump’s address warrants prime time coverage. https://t.co/PgTJs90H1w

This is so bizarre. The networks have been covering every single time Trump sneezes since the moment he announced his candidacy, to the point of exhaustive lunacy. Now, he is doing an official address and there's a question on whether to air it? https://t.co/yp9BZHHY9r

I'd like to watch a Trump address to the nation like it was on DVR, where anchors pause the feed every time he lies about something and instantly correct him before hitting play again. That would actually be useful.

What I don't get is how is Trump going to change minds on the wall? He's been making his case for 3.5 years now… and consistently voters have been against it.

If Harry Truman couldn't nationalize the steel industry during wartime, President Trump certainly doesn't have the power to declare a nonexistent emergency and build a multi-billion dollar wall on the border.
That's a complete nonstarter. pic.twitter.com/NamOknGHMo

Trump and Sarah Sanders are suddenly acting like they care about a "humanitarian crisis on our border." Don't let them pull the wool over your eyes.
They have shown the world again and again how little regard they have for the dignity and lives of refugees and immigrants. pic.twitter.com/tW9CQyHvLy

This is completely appalling abuse & attempted intimidation. Whatever your views on politics or Brexit, this kind of thing should have no place in our democracy. Solidarity with @Anna_Soubry https://t.co/D12BBks5JK

Tim this is beneath you.Elected representatives can never surrender their voice to Thuggery. Yes MP’s soldier on regardless. But we all have people in our lives who know us and love us. Our partners, elderly parents, children. In the wake of Jo Cox they can’t. They are petrified. https://t.co/lHcz0xjTSX

and here it is:
The key point is that extra checks of up to 40 seconds per truck don’t result in extra queues. But above that there would be an exponential spike on delays:
With checks of 70 seconds per truck there would be….queues of SIX DAYShttps://t.co/nMSiuIfPG8

Seeing a lot of those involved in the Leave campaign on the timeline who are watching #BrexitTheUncivilWar and are unhappy with how they're being portrayed 👀

Thank you to the makers of #BrexitTheUncivilWar for treating Jo’s murder with respect. Please remember that while Jo was a passionate remainer she was far more committed to reminding us of what we have in common. Whatever happens now – that will be the most important mission.

If you’re interested in where the targeted advert techniques showcased in #BrexitTheUncivilWar end up – I’ve projected forward a few years here, for @Medium. It doesn’t look pretty. This is much bigger than one vote – it’s about election integrity. https://t.co/nJ5VHNG0lC

Tonight at @belfastcc Sinn Fein/DUP voted down the redirecting of half a million pounds of funding to an anti-poverty crisis intervention fund. The same parties that have facilitated Tory austerity in our communities via Welfare Reform. Who are they really looking out for???
