All three cable networks broke into their coverage just after 12:50 p.m. ET as Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) took to the House floor to address the charges of ethics violations against him.
All three aired Rangel’s comments live until about 1:16, when MSNBC went to Luke Russert and CNN went to Brianna Keilar in the Capitol Rotunda for analysis. Fox News had anchor Megyn Kelly provide her own analysis of Rangel’s speech.
Update: C-SPAN has video of Rangel’s comments.
