<p>Minutes after Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) declared his candidacy for president, the major broadcast networks went to work in their Monday evening newscasts downplaying and attacking Rubio over his age, policy positions, and touting the<strong> &ldquo;experience,&rdquo; &ldquo;fame,&rdquo; </strong>and <strong>&ldquo;fortune&rdquo; </strong>possessed by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and possible Republican candidate Jeb Bush.</p>

<p>At the beginning of her report on <em>NBC Nightly News</em>, correspondent Kelly O&rsquo;Donnell criticized Rubio immediately by taking a dig at him for pandering to Fox News: <strong>&ldquo;Candidates rarely make their announcements in the evening, but Marco Rubio did. He came here at the precise time of 6:03 p.m. to make sure that cable networks like the conservative home of Fox News would carry it live for a friendly audience, and the location was also intentionally symbolic.&rdquo;</strong></p>
