Cable news networks covered the inaugural prayer service this morning, but Hawaii Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz let them know he thinks the ratings are elsewhere:
1st cable show to cut live to 100's of thousands of marchers will gain credibility & viewers. Something historic is happening outside.

Well, maybe THAT stuff wouldn’t exactly reel in the ratings.
Pretty sure people marching for their pet cause isn't historic https://t.co/fLBjJCL7Uo

And yet the March for Life draws those numbers every year. I never see wall to wall coverage of that 🤔 https://t.co/5U5vuJBfbi
