VPOTUS to CNN: If you want top health experts on CNN, air the briefings in full

Vice President Mike Pence’s office has blocked top health experts, including Drs. Birx and Fauci, from appearing on CNN since last Thursday, CNN’s Oliver Darcy reports. His office is running the booking of the top doctors, and says if CNN wants them back on air, CNN needs to air President Trump’s coronavirus briefings in its entirety instead of only pieces of it.

However, a CNN executive told Darcy that the network usually returns to programming after a certain point because of the extensive length of the full briefing that includes Pence, which can run in excess of two hours.

“When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air,” a Pence spokesperson told CNN.

CNN declined to comment on Darcy’s story.
