Several broadcasters won't send camera crews inside Donald Trump's indoor campaign events in Nevada over concerns that staff could be exposed to coronavirus. CNN's Brian Stelter, whose network will not be covering the president's indoor rally on Sunday with its own camera crew, reports that news outlets have been forced to make “tough decisions about how to keep their staffers safe” while the president flouts public safety guidelines by increasing the risk of transmission among large groups at his indoor events. “Major TV networks have decided not to send their camera crews inside, because they feel it will not be safe enough,” he said.
