As much as the broadcast networks would have liked to, they couldn’t spend all week talking about Barack and Michelle Obama during their coverage of the virtual 2020 DNC. That said, they were able to muster fawning praise Wednesday night for vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris’s “soaring speech,” ensuring Americans “saw [Harris and Joe Biden] as human beings.” 

Like they did with former President Obama, ABC set expectations high in the build-up to her speech. Senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce assumed women were a political monolith, boasting that her speech would be “a huge moment of significance for women, for women of color, and to especially for young girls.”
