<p>CNN&#39;s Wolf Blitzer boosted the NAACP&#39;s protest of Senator Jeff Sessions at his office in Mobile, Alabama. Blitzer set aside over five and a half minutes of air time on the 3 January 2017 edition of <em>The Situation Room</em> to an interview of the liberal organization&#39;s president, and gave him a platform to attack the attorney general nominee. The NAACP leader even likened his sit-in to the famous 1965 civil rights march over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. The following morning, ABC&#39;s <em>Good Morning America</em> spotlighted the protest during a 28-second news brief.</p>
