‘It’s a big deal’: TV coverage notes magnitude of Kamala Harris victory


Active member
Soon after the major television networks called the White House for Joe Biden and devoted some time to discussing the coming end of the Trump presidency, they began taking note of a milestone: the ascendancy of the first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect, Sen. Kamala Harris of California.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski described Harris’ success as “a crack in the ceiling.”

“As we give this context and talk about Joe Biden’s incredible path to victory, it would be amiss not to mention right now we’re also in another moment of transition and history, where we are going to be witnessing the first woman vice president of the United States,” Brzezinski said.


Harris’ rise to the second highest role in American government came four years after Hillary Clinton’s White House run fell short and 36 years after Geraldine Ferraro lost her bid for the vice presidency.
On CNN, Abby Phillip said that Harris, 56, would help Biden, 77, bridge the gap between the Democratic Party’s old guard and its newer members.


“Kamala Harris represents so much for millions of people in this country,” Phillip said.
Her CNN colleague Dana Bash noted that Harris was a key part of a winning national ticket 100 years after women had won the right to vote and 55 years after the Voting Rights Act sought to protect against Black disenfranchisement.
Harris was born in 1964, a year before the act was put in place.


“The magnitude of this moment certainly is not lost on Black women and likely many women in general,” said the ABC News anchor Linsey Davis. “I’m especially thinking about the little girls of all colors, but in particular, Black and brown girls, because there’s so much power in seeing someone who looks like you.”
