Didn't the Fox television network carry it, too?  I watched it on
FoxNews and they referenced their bcast network, as well.

I agree with Dan. The last thing that commercial stations/networks
need are reasons to draw viewers.  By taking a walk on the
president's speech, the major networks showed that they can be
honest with viewers regarding where news and PA fits in their mix.
Besides, the cable stations gladly took the boost in numbers.
