(I wish Twitter was carrying multiple live streams but they have yet to publish an Event. I guess Twitter has decided this historic series of hearings isn’t worth their time.
4:00 p.m. — Oh, look, Twitter finally got their shit together and just in time for recess. https://twitter.com/i/events/1540059136305397760)
ABC is carrying the hearing live on broadcast; CNN, NBC Now and MSNBC on their cable networks.
(CBS has likewise thrown in the towel like Twitter as I don’t see the hearing listed under their channel.)
