Brian Sicknick, the U.S. Capitol police officer who was killed in the line of duty during the Jan. 6 insurrection, laid in honor in the Rotunda -- and all the major networks but one covered the somber ceremony.
President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden joined Sicknick's family members and other Capitol police officers in honoring the slain officer Tuesday night, and the Air National Guard veteran will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.
The Rotunda ceremony was carried live by CNN, MSNBC and other networks, but viewers noticed that Fox News ignored the event honoring Sicknick -- who was killed as fellow supporters of president Donald Trump tried to overturn the election results.
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.

CNN and MSNBC live at Capitol for honors to fallen police officer Brian Sicknick. Fox has Ingraham talking to Scott Atlas. pic.twitter.com/HVeLXZvNcQ

Fox News isn't covering the ceremony for Officer Sicknick.
Aren't they the Blue Lives Matter people?
I guess they were talking about Smurfs.

MSNBC and CNN are covering the Capitol Rotunda where Brian Sicknick lies in honor.
On Fox News, Laura Ingraham is bitching about Dr. Fauci.

Fox News is not covering the ceremony in the Capitol for Officer Sicknick, who was killed during the January 6th attack. Disgraceful.

While CNN and MSNBC carried President Biden paying tribute to fallen police officer Brian Sicknick, who was killed during the insurrection instigated by Donald Trump, Fox carried Eric Trump having a tantrum and lying about the Trump Organization's taxes in Scotland.

It's fitting that Fox News' Laura Ingraham is getting lambasted for not covering Officer Sicknick being brought into the Capitol...
Laura Ingraham has been one of the most energetic proponents of the Big Lie, which directly led to Officer Sicknick's murder.
She is scum.

I wonder why “pro-police" Fox News almost completely ignored Officer Sicknick's memorial service at the Capitol. Might it have *something* to do with the fact that they repeated Trump's Big Lie that inspired the insurrection nearly 800 TIMES and are complicit in his death?

It is amazing that all of the cable networks are carrying the ceremony for the fallen Capitol Police officer, with the exception of Fox who always claims that they so love their men in blue. They have Eric Trump on. Disgraceful. RIP Officer Sicknick.

Ingraham on FOX is interviewing "Dr." Scott Atlas, king of the herd immunity theory espoused by Trump instead of showing Officer Sicknick lying in honor at the Capitol.
He is blaming Fauci for the "Forever Pandemic".
I thought FOX loved the police. Why aren't they showing it?

I thought blue lives matter was a GOP thing. Tonight the funeral lying in state for the fallen officer, Brian Sicknick, is being covered solemnly on MSNBC and CNN. But not covered at all on Fox or the right wing networks ( OAN, Newsmax) So I guess that was all BS for the GoP. pic.twitter.com/aIhbZaiuq9
