(Newser) – ABC, CBS, and NBC all cut away from President Trump on Thursday evening as he spoke from the White House and made an unfounded accusation that the presidential election was being stolen from him. MSNBC's Brian Williams also interrupted the president. Fox News Channel and CNN aired the president's full address, after which CNN's Anderson Cooper said Trump was “like an obese turtle on his back, flailing in the hot sun realizing his time was over.” Network personalities had sharply criticized Trump after his angry, middle-of-the-night speech following Election Day but aired that talk in full. Trump was more subdued Thursday, yet offered a litany of complaints about “suppression” polls, mail-in voting and fraud that he never specified. Details from the major networks and elsewhere:
