Haggerty Quoted in Newsweek on Coverage of Trump Trial



PRCG CEO James F. Haggerty was interviewed by Newsweek this week, for an article entitled: “Trump’s Televised Trial Could Rival Super Bowl Viewership.”

The question: Whether, given all of the legal issues arising from their coverage of the 2020 election, Fox News would cover the trial at all?

Haggerty said this:

“The ratings will be too much for Fox to resist,” James Haggerty, communications consultant specializing in high-profile litigation, told Newsweek. “They’ll take steps, no doubt, to avoid their past mistakes, but there’s just too much money at stake. In fact, I’d expect CNN to broadcast all or most of a Trump trial as well.”
