MSNBC and CNN refused to air Donald Trump’s Republican Iowa caucus victory speech, citing concerns about broadcasting “untrue things.”

CNN cut away after Trump began talking about the border, while MSNBC did not air the speech live but said they would monitor it for any news.

“At this point in the evening, the projected winner of the Iowa caucuses has just started giving his victory speech. We will keep an eye on that as it happens,” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said. (Trending: Bombshell J6 Footage Raises Questions About Pelosi’s Team)

“We will let you know if there’s any news made in that speech if there’s anything noteworthy, something substantive and important. The reason I’m saying this is, of course, there is a reason that we and other news organizations have generally stopped giving an unfiltered Live platform to remarks by former President Trump and is not out of spite it is not a decision that we relish it is a decision that we regularly revisit and honestly earnestly it is not an easy decision.”

“But there is a cost to us as a news organization, knowingly broadcasting untrue things as a fundamental truth of our business and who we are and so his remarks tonight will not air here live we will monitor them and let you know about any news that he makes,” she added.

“We are going to seal at the border. Because, right now, we have an invasion. We have an invasion of millions and millions of people that are coming into our country. I can’t imagine why they think that’s a good thing,” Trump began.

“Donald Trump declaring victory with a historically strong showing in the Iowa caucuses. If these numbers hold, the biggest victory for a non-incumbent president in the modern era for this contest. A relatively subdued speech as the things go so far. Although, here he is, right now, under my voice. You can hear him repeating his anti-immigrant rhetoric,” CNN’s Jake Tapper cut in.

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt criticized the networks for not airing the speech, calling them “channels of opinion.”

Both networks aired speeches by Trump’s rivals, and author Michael Shellenberger mocked them for trying to “protect their fragile viewers” from Trump.

“The brass [at] @CNN and @MSNBC would not air it…because they aren’t news channels. The are channels of opinion which wish to exclude center-right opinion, with consequent deep damage to their ‘news’ brands,” Hewitt said.

“Trump won every county in Iowa thus CNN and MSNBC must protect their fragile viewers from his utterances. We are witnessing an elite panic. It’s as primitive and superstitious as the one that declared some women to be witches capable of casting spells,” Shellenberger wrote.
