Wednesday: Inauguration Special Coverage Pre-Empts JX
It was pretty much a given that a few more major news stories would break between the first of the year and January 20th, the date of the presidential inauguration.
But we didn't count on both an attack on the U.S. Capitol and a second impeachment of President Trump. At Noon eastern time, Trump gets a prefix (ex- or former-), and Joe Biden loses a suffix: -elect.
