A speech in which Bush is expected to lay out details of the transfer of power to Iraq, and reassure Americans about that war, will not be covered by the major networks.
According to Hollywood Reporter:
The broadcast networks are not expected to carry President Bush’s primetime speech tonight, in which he will lay out a “clear strategy” for the future of Iraq. The Bush administration has not requested the Big Four to air live the president’s address to an audience at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Penn., scheduled for 8 p.m. EDT on the last Monday of the crucial for the network’s ad rates May sweep period.
NBC, Fox and ABC will proceed with their scheduled programming for the 8-9 p.m. hour — an episode of “Fear Factor,” the finale of “The Swan” and the broadcast premiere of Oscar-winning “A Beautiful Mind,” respectively. NBC and Fox’s sibling cable channels, MSNBC and Fox News, will carry the speech.
