Trump's former campaign manager complains that Fox News cut away from the RNC and he had to watch on CNN

  • Brad Parscale, a senior advisor on Trump's 2020 campaign, expressed frustration on Monday night that Fox News cut away from the Republican National Convention.
  • "Can't believe I have to watch the convention on @CNN. Unbelievable. @FoxNews," Parscale, formerly Trump's campaign manager, tweeted.
  • For stretches early on during the first night, both of Fox News' highest rated opinion hosts, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, conducted their shows as usual with the convention showing silently in a box on screen.
  • Right as both MSNBC and CNN were carrying the convention live, Hannity warned that "the mob, the media won't be covering large parts of the RNC that we'll be showing."

Brad Parscale, President Donald Trump's former 2020 campaign manager, took to Twitter on Monday night to complain that Fox News cut away from the Republican National Convention, which apparently caused him to turn to CNN. 

"Can't believe I have to watch the convention on @CNN. Unbelievable. @FoxNews," Parscale, now a senior advisor on the Trump campaign, tweeted.

Fox News cut away from the RNC early on in the proceedings to interview GOP Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana. 

Cable networks cutting in and out of convention coverage is not unusual, but Parscale's tweet underscored how integral Fox News is to President Trump's messaging.

At one point Monday night, Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity warned that "the mob, the media won't be covering large parts of the RNC that we'll be showing."

Right as he was saying that, MSNBC and CNN were carrying the program live, while Hannity's show left it in a box to the side of the screen as he talked.

Just like last week, the major TV networks will block out the 10 p.m. hour of their programming to air convention coverage live. 

Before that, the cable networks and online streams are the only options.
