An unprecedented move on the part of the three major U.S. TV networks.

NBC, MSNBC, CBS and ABC all cutting away from President Trumps news conference last night  after he claimed that "fraud" had taken place in the presidential election. 

NBC anchor Lester Holt was the first to cut away after roughly five minutes.

Holt telling viewers, "We have to interrupt here because the president made a number of false statements including the notion that there's been fraudulent voting."

Moments later CBS and ABC followed suit.

CNN and FOX aired the news conference without interruption.
