Fox News Anchor Abandons Live Broadcast At Supreme Court Because She Felt Unsafe
David Rutz, Washington Free Beacon
Fox News anchor Shannon Bream said she was forced to retreat from her planned live broadcast at the Supreme Court building Monday night because she "felt threatened" and didn't think she would be safe.
President Donald Trump announced his nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Monday; if confirmed, Kavanaugh will fill the seat of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Before Trump had even announced his pick, a crowd of protesters gathered at the Supreme Court building in Washington to express their opposition to whomever was selected.
Bream, who anchors "Fox News @ Night" at 11 p.m. EST on weeknights, reported live from the Supreme Court building for most of the day on Monday, up through the 9 p.m. hour when Trump announced Kavanaugh as his selection.
However, at 9:30 p.m., shortly after she had spoken with Sean Hannity about the Kavanaugh pick, she tweeted she felt "threatened" and later said she was returning to the studio. Fox News reportedprotesters were screaming at one another, and the majority of those present were left-leaning and holding signs like "Protect Roe" and "Don’t Criminalize Abortion."
