Networks Omit How Democratic Governor in South Carolina Raised Confederate Flag in 1962

In their coverage on Monday night of the calls by South Carolina officials to remove the Confederate flag from the State Capitol’s grounds, the major broadcast networks failed to note the full context of the flag’s history in the Palmetto State and how it was a Democratic Governor who first hoisted it above the Capitol dome in 1962.

Meanwhile, Fox News’s Special Report noted this fact during one of the show’s “All-Star Panel” segments with host Bret Baier alluding to it as well as how a Republican was in office when the flag was taken down from the dome and moved to the Capitol’s grounds as a compromise in 1998.

Prior to comments by Fox News Channel (FNC) contributor Charles Krauthammer about the issue, Baier felt it was pertinent to provide viewers with some “important historical context” in that “the flag was raised over the state capitol by Democrat Fritz Hollings – then Governor” in 1962 before being “taken off the state capitol by Republican David Beasley after pressure in 1998 and put on the State grounds.”

While ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir did not mention the flag’s history around the State Capitol, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley and NBC Nightly News highlighted how the flag returned to the Capitol during the Civil Rights Movement, but never explained it any further. On CBS, correspondent Adriana Diaz put it this way:

The Confederate flag began flying on the Capitol dome in 1961, in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement. In 2000, it was proved to the Confederate War Memorial on Capitol grounds and is the only flagged that cannot be lowered without a legislative vote, so after the shooting, when the other flags at the statehouse were lowered, the Confederate flag flew high[.]

Similarly, NBC News correspondent Ron Allen gave a brief description of the Confederate flag’s history on the Capitol grounds: “The flag first flew atop the dome in 1962, a symbol of defiance during the Civil Rights Movement. In 2000 a compromise moved the flag to the war memorial on the Statehouse grounds.”

While the networks punted on this element of the story, Fox News and The Rush Limbaugh Show were joined by liberal National Public Radio (NPR) in finding time to mention it with an online article written by political reporter Jessica Taylor.

After Baier’s comments on Special Report, Krauthammer predicted that states that fly or incorporate the Confederate flag “are on their way to extinction over time” and agreed with fellow panelist Wesley Lowery of The Washington Post that:

Nikki Haley has done everyone a favor in giving cover because the standard Republican position is it should be up to the people of South Carolina. She speaks for the state. The two senators, who are Republicans, have spoken for the state. So, everybody is covered. As a matter of policy, if I were a South Carolinian, I would do exactly as she did. I would have done it five years ago.

Krauthammer also emphasized that t’s a good thing that it's been done,” but added that “this a total irrelevance” to the tragedy that took place in Charleston

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."
