February 26th, 2020 4:02 PM
President Trump’s state visit to India received less than a single minute of evening news coverage from broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC).

Abortion Vote Coverage: Networks Praised Ireland, Ignored Argentina
August 14th, 2018 2:53 PM
This year, two countries held significant votes on elective abortion. But the networks only covered the aftermath of one of them – the country that voted for abortion.

Flashback: In 2009, Nets Slobbered Over Obama’s ‘Sacred Event’
January 20th, 2017 6:05 AM
As Donald Trump is inaugurated the 45th president today, it’s not likely that the three networks will suggest that seagulls were “awed” by the “sacred” event, one that “pilgrims” trekked to Washington to see. But that happened on January 20, 2009 as Barack Obama became the 44th president. ABC, CBS and NBC reporters were beside themselves and compared the event to a religious experience.
Notable Quotables: NBC Winces When Hillary's Honesty Questioned
February 8th, 2016 9:00 AM
This week, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt tells Hillary Clinton how he “winced” when a young voter told the candidate that “people don't trust you,” even as Holt's scandal-scarred predecessor Brian Williams showed a stunning lack of self-awareness when he told MSNBC viewers on caucus night: “We will be the purveyors of truth and justice.” Plus, when Hollywood is accused of racism over the…

February 22nd, 2014 10:39 PM
When you're an acclaimed liberal movie star like Leonardo diCaprio, there's apparently nothing controversial that you can put on film. On the February 16 "Sunday Morning" on CBS, reporter Lee Cowan created an entire interview feature around diCaprio's latest movie "The Wolf of Wall Street" without ever mentioning scenes of orgies or midget tossing, or the more than 500 uses of the F-bomb in the…

On Wednesday's NBC Today, news reader Natalie Morales touted a "Today exclusive" with Michelle Obama, playing a clip of a "wide-ranging conversation" between the First Lady and Kelly Wallace of the NBC-owned iVillage website that amounted to little more than a friendly chat about current events and Obama's 2012 book, American Grown.
