House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) said after trying to pressure C-SPAN to televise the hearing against Alvin Bragg, the network did not give up and it will be broadcast online.
C-SPAN tweeted a response Jordan and other Republicans called for the hearing to be televised:
FYI: For those who comment @JudiciaryGOP Hearing on crime in Manhattan, presiding @Jim_JordanC-SPAN’s plan was to broadcast live on the C-SPAN Now app and https://t.co/MlO245CgyJ https://t.co/tlLBvD1lAz

We’ll see if Fox News or Newsmax shows the trial live, but the whole point of the trial was to create mainstream media coverage to smear Alvin Bragg, pollute the jury pool, and discredit the Trump impeachment. him.
Jordan, House Republicans and the conservative media have been trying to pressure C-SPAN to be ‘fair’ and televise the hearing.
The lack of C-SPAN television coverage is indicative of Jordan’s recent perceived lack of news competence.
There has been a change in media culture. Republicans are struggling to adapt their false narratives, conspiracy theories, and talking points into the mainstream political conversation.
Without their talking points getting off the ground and covered by the mainstream media, Republicans are trapped in a right-wing bubble that preaches to their supporters.
