When Trump Calls, TV Still Answers
Live TV phone interviews with Trump continue despite widespread criticism

Donald Trump spent almost 30 minutes on the phone with the moderators of two major cable television networks Friday morning, dropping one-liners at Hillary Clinton's expense and repeating phrases from recent stump speeches.  

The live phone interviews, on "Fox & Friends"  on Fox News and MSNBC's "Morning Joe,"  continue a practice that breaks a long-standing industry rule and has attracted widespread criticism over the primary campaign.
