January 6th will forever be engraved in the hearts and minds of the American people. Much like the September 11th attack that will still honor and mourn with each passing year, this country won’t soon forget the insurrection at this nation’s Capitol building that tore the seams of our country’s very democracy and claimed the lives of five American human beings — all at the hands of the former President’s rabid supporters and at the spurring of the former President himself.
Among those to pay for the violent Capitol riots with their very life was U.S. Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick who was slain in the line of duty, protecting one of this nation’s most precious and revered buildings from nothing short of domestic terrorists working in the name of Donald Trump.
Sicknick was laid to honor in the Capitol Rotunda — a somber ceremony that was covered by every major news network… Except one.
President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden joined the family of the slain officer in paying their respects last night and the Air National Guard veteran will soon be laid to peaceful rest at Arlington National Cemetery.
The sobering ceremony to honor Sicknick’s life and sacrifice, held in the Rotunda, was covered live by CNN, MSNBC, and every other reputable cable news network. However, Americans quickly realized that coverage of the ceremony was notably absent from Fox News Network. It seems that the network of choice for the Republican party and their supporters simply flat out ignored the ceremony honoring the life of the man slain by supporters of Donald Trump who were attempting to overturn this country’s democratic voice.
Not only did Americans take notice, they quickly and rightfully put the network on blast:

MSNBC and CNN are covering the Capitol Rotunda where Brian Sicknick lies in honor.

Joe and Jill Biden join Democrats and Republicans to mourn slain Capitol cop Brian Sicknick, 42, as he lies in honor in building he was defending from MAGA rioters when he was murdered- and… FOX News did NOT even cover the event.

Please keep this very moment in mind the next time the Republican party claims to be the party of “Blue Lives.”
