ABC News’ Terry Moran Said He ‘Felt No Threat’ While Reporting Next to Scotus Protesters

By A.J. Katz 

ABC News chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran says he didn’t feel threatened while reporting from Supreme Court plaza on Monday night after the Scotus nomination announcement, and that he found the protests “very democratic, all-American.”

Moran’s view seemed to be different from that of Fox News anchor and Supreme Court reporter Shannon Bream, who reported from just outside the Supreme Court Building at the same time as Moran: 9:19-9:20 p.m. ET.

She told The Wrap yesterday: “People were jostling around, getting physical. People were standing behind me while I was trying to do live shots. It was pretty unnerving.” She also added that “a small group of people who were yelling and getting in our faces were saying things that were anti-Fox,” and “I want to sing the praises of the U.S. Supreme Court police because they’re always fantastic. They always do a good job. But last night the barriers weren’t there.”

Bream was supposed to anchor her 11 p.m. ET newscast from the same area, but she and her team made the decision to head back to her D.C. studio due to a “volatile mood” at her broadcast location.

Fox & Friends senior meteorologist Janice Dean noticed Moran’s tweet, and defended her friend and colleague while criticizing the ABC Newser.

*Update: Bream responded to Moran’s tweet at 9:53 a.m. ET:
