Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) might not get the national audience she'd hoped for Tuesday evening, when she delivers her response to the State of the Union address.
Only one television network — CNN — plans to air Bachmann's response to President Obama in its entirety, which she'll deliver separately from the official Republican response. She will make her remarks to the Tea Party Express, which will live-stream her speech on its website.
NBC, CBS, ABC and the Fox broadcast network won't air Bachmann's address, according to spokesmen.
On cable, Fox News won't carry Bachmann's speech, nor will MSNBC, which "will report on it, but [does not] plan to air it live," according to a spokesman.
CNN, by contrast, will air Bachmann's speech "live and in its entirety," according to a spokeswoman. C-SPAN will also carry a portion of her remarks before referring viewers to its special website to watch the rest of the speech. CBS will air the speech live online and cover it in its live, post-State of the Union webcast anchored by Katie Couric and other members of the network's political team. ABC will have a complete wrap of the State of the Union on its "Nightline" program, which will cover the Bachmann response, according to a spokesman. ABC will broadcast Bachmann's speech online, however.
