Not only did the broadcast networks spent more time on the People’s Climate March, than the March for Life, they portrayed it positively, ignoring all the radicalism promoted by participants.

NBC “Nightly News,” ABC “World News Tonight” on Sept. 21 and CBS “This Morning” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sept. 22 gave a combined 3 minutes and 27 seconds to the climate march. That was four-and-a-half times the 46 seconds of stories that NBC and ABC evening news shows gave to the March for Life in January 2014.

Nicolle Wallace, The View's new "conservative" co-host, on Monday trashed Sarah Palin and defended Hillary Clinton against alleged sexism. Wallace, who worked for Palin in 2008, has previously attacked her former boss. Asked to talk about an alleged brawl that broke out at a Palin family party, the ex-political operative mocked, "I have political staffer version of PTSD. So, whenever I hear she's breaking her silence...my heart stops."

Starting Friday night, CBS began previewing an exclusive 60 Minutes interview with Leon Panetta, which aired on Sunday night, where the former Secretary of Defense said he had advised President Obama to arm the Syrian rebels as early as 2012. Despite Panetta’s criticism of President Obama’s strategy to combat ISIS, ABC and NBC have ignored the story altogether despite having multiple opportunities since the preview for the interview first aired on Friday’s CBS Evening News w/ Scott Pelley

ABC's Good Morning America uncritically promotes the liberal agenda, regardless of the facts. But it's not just political stories that excite the credulous hosts. On August 4, George Stephanopoulos eagerly announced, "A Southern California city on edge, because they fear a lion is on the loose? It's all over that video right there."

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice told NBC News that Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) was innocent of any wrong-doing relating to the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge. Despite Governor Christie’s reported innocence, ABC and CBS have yet to cover the NBC story, but when the story originally broke in January, all three networks eagerly jumped on it. So far NBC has devoted only two news briefs on its Thursday night and Friday morning broadcasts totaling 59 seconds.

On Wednesday night, it was reported that two Marine Corps veterans are walking from northern North Carolina to Washington D.C. and the White House to demand that President Obama take action to ensure the release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican prison. However, none of the major broadcast networks have stepped up and covered the actions of the these veterans.

One of the two veterans, retired Lance Corporal Terry Sharpe, gave an interview to Greta Van Susteren on her Fox News Channel (FNC) show On the Record Wednesday and told her that he and fellow veteran Alan Brown hope to arrive at the White House to verbally deliver the message to the President within the next seven days. As of the interview, the pair were 100 miles south of Washington.

An enormous development in the Bridgegate scandal broke late Thursday afternoon when federal officials reported that they have cleared New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) of any wrong-doing relating to the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge in September 2013. 

When it came to the major broadcast networks covering this huge development, ABC and CBS punted on the story and refused to cover it in their Thursday night newscasts. NBC Nightly News did cover the story, however, but only in the form of a news brief that lasted for 38 seconds.

What do the networks consider vital information for their viewers? ABC, NBC and CBS again on Thursday offered the latest about the "firestorm" engulfing the National Football League. Yet, these same outlets have ignored a shocking act of domestic terrorism within the United States. Ali Muhammad Brown allegedly murdered 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin on June 25th.  According to CNN, told police: "My mission is vengeance for the lives, millions of lives are lost every day: Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, all these places where innocent lives with being taken every single day." 

He chillingly added, "So, a life for a life." Brown gunned down Tevlin in New Jersey, shooting the college student multiple times. ABC, CBS and NBC have, thus far, not uttered a word on this act of terrorism.

On Thursday, September 18, a strange thing happened: ABC actually covered President Obama’s plummeting poll numbers. No, not ABC News, but the daytime ABC program The View which spent nearly four minutes discussing his falling poll numbers. Moderator Whoopi Goldberg proclaimed that President Obama “might be afraid…the latest approval ratings seemed to have sunk lower than George Bush's levels. Partly because more than half of Americans are disapproving of the way he seems to be handling terrorism.”

A government report claiming that there was no conclusive proof that long wait times led to deaths at Veterans Affairs hospitals was altered. Yet, for the second day in a row, NBC ignored this revelation. ABC's Good Morning America on Thursday allowed a scant 21 seconds, despite news reader Amy Robach hyping the "stunning admission."

The mother of ISIS beheading victim James Foley told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, on September 11, that she was “embarrassed and appalled” by the White House’s handling of her son’s kidnapping. On September 8 a spokesman for the family of ISIS victim Steven Sotloff claimed that both families were “bullied and hectored” by the administration.

So how many Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network stories have been devoted to helping these families tell their shocking stories of a White House that let them down and even intimidated them? Just three (CBS 2, ABC 1, NBC 0).
