CNN, MSNBC Carry Obama’s Remarks at Dorothy Height Service; Fox News Does Not

This morning, President Obama eulogized civil rights leader Dorothy Height at her funeral service at the National Cathedral in Washington. (AP story here.)

Both CNN and MSNBC carried the President’s remarks in full, while Fox News stayed in regular “America’s Newsroom” programming. The event did receive a brief mention on FNC prior to the President speaking and was streamed live on FoxNews.com.

Afterward, WaPo’s Howard Kurtz tweeted:

Fox passed on taking Dorothy Height funeral, even when Obama was speaking. Is that not news? Other cablers covered.
