Skip to comments.ABC, NBC Too Busy With O.J. Simpson Police Chase Anniversary To Cover V.A. Scandal

CBS Evening News was the only Big Three evening newscast on Wednesday to report that the FBI has opened a criminal investigation into the V.A. scandal. Neither ABC's World News nor NBC Nightly News covered this latest development in the ongoing controversy. Instead, both programs devoted air time to the 20th anniversary of O.J. Simpson's slow-speed run from the police, after the murder of his wife and her friend.
On Monday's Your World on Fox News Channel, MRC President Brent Bozell slammed the Big Three networks for their burial of the V.A. scandal in the wake of former Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation: "It's no different than the coverage of Bergdahl. This has diappeared. Benghazi disappeared. The IRS disappeared. Fast and Furious disappeared. Stimulus abuses disappeared. All these scandals are disappearing on purpose."
After Pelley's brief on the FBI investigation, the CBS evening newscast aired a one minute and 45 second report from correspondent Elaine Quijano on protests against the World Cup in Brazil nearly six times the amount of time set aside for the latest on the V.A. scandal.
They do what they’re told.
they overdo ...what they’re told to do
why leave anything to chance
Ill bet that half the people watching that tripe arent old enough to remember OJAY
For what it’s worth, I didn’t see much about the fall of Mosul either.
Yep, we’ve got to rehash the anniversary of OJ, rather than covering current news about the Obama administration.
Just wait a few years, we’ll have to deal with anniversaries of Trayvon Martin, or other long over issues.
First Amendment? Priceless.
Bergdahl? Is that a new kind of pancake syrup?
Being a public interest watchdog is a noble but demanding job. There
are few harder jobs than holding the government’s feet to the fire.
It is so difficult to be a reporter that the vast majority of them take
from four to eight years vacations, usually during Democrat
administrations. That is when reporters practice their love letter
