So far, broadcast networks are delaying the making of Joe Biden’s speech: deadline

UPDATED, with excerpts from the speech: President Joe Biden will deliver a speech in Philadelphia tonight about the “ongoing battle for the soul of the nation,” and while cable networks and broadcast news outlets will cover the speech, no plans have yet been announced by broadcast networks. to pass it on.

Those plans could still change at the last minute, the sources say.

Unlike a White House speech, Biden’s speech is taking place at Independence National Historical Park, in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania, just as the midterm campaigns are heating up. Television networks have traditionally been more reluctant to move ahead of prime time for political rallies or partisan speeches, except for major events like political conventions and election night.

Based on the exceptions released by the White House, Biden tells viewers that he is speaking “clearly to the nation about the threats we face. About the power we have in our own hands to deal with those threats. And about the incredible future we have in front of us if we just choose it.”

“The forces of MAGA are determined to set this country back,” Biden said. “On the contrary, to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”

He will also talk about how Americans have “made sure that American democracy is guaranteed. But is not. We have to defend it. Protect it. Stand up for it. Every single one of us.”

Previously, a senior administration official told reporters that the president “will speak about the direct threats to democracy from the MAGA Republicans and the extremism that is a threat right now to our democratic values.” But, according to NBC News, the official said “it’s not a speech about a particular politician, or even a particular political party.”

Although White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Thursday that Biden’s speech is “not a political speech,” Republicans have classified what is being advertised as a “pre-buttal.” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy speaking in Scranton, PA, reportedly will focus on Biden’s comments at a fundraiser last week, when he referred to the MAGA philosophy “almost like semi-fascism.” McCarthy and other Republicans have accused Biden of denigrating millions of Americans who support Donald Trump.

Jean-Pierre told reporters: “A lot of people are worried about where our democracy is. I’d say that’s general. And when we talk about extremism, we’re talking about a very small component of the American public. We are talking about a very small component of MAGA Republicans in Congress.”
