Fox stations will not be covering the presidential presser, according to the New York Times. Some think the snub is political, but not me. It's disrespectful, but I can halfway get it.
TV stations make their money on commercials, and when the president feels as if he needs to disrupt the flow with a presser to talk about anything and everything on his mind, it could put a hurting on pockets. Maybe the president should cut stations a check to interrupt programming. I don't know. But I don't think this is a boycott from Fox — they will be carrying the conference on Fox News, after all. Just not affiliated stations.
What do you think? Is it politics or practicality behind Fox's move?
