Cable Networks Cover Donald Trump Endorsement

By Merrill Knox Comment

At 3:45pmET, MSNBC, CNN and Fox News went live to the Donald Trump press conference in Las Vegas, where the real estate mogul — and frequent cable news guest — endorsed Mitt Romney for President.

The Trump endorsement has been fodder for cable news all day, with early reports speculating that former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich would get the nod. Citing “sources with knowledge of the endorsement,” CNN was the first to confirm that Trump would actually endorse Romney.

Trump called in to Fox News for a phone interview with Neil Cavuto after the press conference was through.
