Former Democratic operative turned journalist George Stephanopoulos good barely restrain himself on Tuesday as he gushed over a new movie about the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama. Talking to the stars of Southside With You, he hyped the film as focusing “on one day in the summer of 1989 when Michelle and Barack Obama went out for the first time.”

A major report broke in the New York Post on Sunday that laid out top Hillary Clinton Aide Huma Abedin’s past where she worked for a radical Muslim journal. “For a decade [Abedin] edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11,” wrote the Post’s Paul Sperry. But you would never know it if you watched the “Big Three” networks ABC, CBS, and NBC on Monday. They neither covered it in their morning shows nor their evening broadcasts.

When CNBC’s Joe Kernen calls someone out for liberal bias, it is usually one of his colleagues. This time, he hit ABC This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos. “I love when Steph goes after the Republicans, man. He's tough. He is tough. Whew,” Kernen remarked sarcastically in a jab at the ABC News’ chief anchor on Squawk Box Aug. 22.

Colin Powell, who the networks hyped when he endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, has now slammed Hillary Clinton for attempting to “pin” responsibility of using a private server on him. Yet, CBS and NBC on Monday minimized the story with CBS This Morning noting it for just a scant 29 seconds (out of a two hour program).

ABC demonstrated a marvelous case of hypocrisy on Sunday when it comes to its transparency and perhaps conflicts of interest. On Good Morning America, anchor Dan Harris joked that correspondent Ron Claiborne "can barely hide his lack of objectivity when it comes to the Yankees” after a sports report. However, during ABC's This Week, moderator George Stephanopoulos failed to re-disclose his contributions to the Clinton Foundation while interviewing Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook about the organization.

The network evening and morning shows seem to have badly misplaced priorities. ABC, CBS and NBC have already devoted 10 times more coverage to the Olympic swimmer “scandal” than they did the bombshell admission that the Obama administration linked the release of four American prisoners and a $400 million payment to Iran.

Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS presented several reports on the “massive” and “historic” flooding devastating Louisiana, even comparing storm damage to that suffered during Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina. However, the one thing missing from the coverage was a single mention of the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

ABC became the first Big Three network to cover the felony conviction of the Democratic attorney general of Pennsylvania, Kathleen Kane, on the early Wednesday edition of Nightline. Byron Pitts spotlighted the downfall of the "rising star in Pennsylvania's Democratic Party," who went from being endorsed by Bill Clinton to being a "convicted criminal." ABC's morning and evening newscasts still haven't covered the Kane story, nor have their competitors at CBS and NBC.

On Tuesday, ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning newscasts, along with CNN's New Day, all failed to cover a jury convicting Pennsylvania's Democratic attorney general, Kathleen Kane, on two felony charges of perjury and seven other criminal counts. MSNBC covered the breaking news of the verdict on The Rachel Maddow Show on Monday, and on Tuesday's Morning Joe. Fox News Channel gave news briefs on Kane's conviction on Tuesday's Fox and Friends.

ABC and NBC on Monday night and Tuesday morning ignored what is being described as a “big setback” for ObamaCare, completely skipping the fact that insurance giant Aetna will reduce by two thirds its involvement in the President’s health care plan. This absence is despite a combined six hours of air time over the two days.

Despite serious legal and ethical questions being raised about the Clinton Foundation having high-level access to Hillary Clinton’s State Department while accepting large foreign donations, a CNN report on Thursday revealed that the Obama Justice Department squashed an FBI investigation into the matter. So far, the broadcast networks have censored any mention of the growing scandal.

On Thursday, the three network morning shows were more interested in a man climbing Trump Tower in New York City than the latest revelations in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal. In total, the NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts offered a mere 2 minutes 15 seconds on new e-mails showing Clinton Foundation donors had high-level access to the Clinton State Department, while devoting 5 minutes 12 seconds to a man being arrested for scaling Trump’s Manhattan office building.
