CNN is still going on about Russia. No Manchester coverage at all. Shameful. Fox News showing continuous live coverage of Sky News.
Multiple fatalities confirmed at Manchester Ariana Grande concert. I flip to CNN to see what's happening, & ofc they're talking Trump/Russia
Currently, Fox News is on the Manchester explosion, CNN and MSNBC are locked in on Trump and intelligence officials.
Huge bombing in #Manchester but luckily @CNN prioritizes top news! https://t.co/yBnoBeA1qA
