Fox’s Shannon Bream: ‘Literally had to bail’ from on-site SCOTUS coverage due to ‘volatile mood’ — ‘Felt threatened’

Shannon Bream, although originally a lawyer by profession, has been in TV news since 2001, and has covered all kinds of stories for CBS, NBC, and Fox.  She has been at Fox since 2007, becoming host of Fox News @ Night in 2017.

She’s no novice, in other words.  And she has covered stories on the streets of Washington, D.C. on numerous occasions, many from her legal beat at the Supreme Court.  So it is genuinely noteworthy that she and her crew had to shut down their coverage at the site of an anti-nominee protest outside the U.S. Supreme Court building on Monday night, because the situation was so volatile that they didn’t feel safe.

As Daniel Chaitin observes at Washington Examiner, Bream didn’t bring up these particular sentiments in her evening broadcast from the studio, where she retreated after leaving the Supreme Court steps.  She did acknowledge them, however, in an interview with Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE):

Later in the program, during an interview with Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who noted they were supposed to talk on the steps of the Supreme Court, Bream said, “It got a little too rowdy out there at the court tonight.”

Bream had posted a brief video clip of the protest earlier, before the nomination was announced.

Which confirms that the determination to oppose any Trump nominee with frantic anger and noise is a prior plan, preceding the actual clarification of the candidate’s identity.

A full hour and a half of shrieking.
