News Fact: When Minutes (Don’t) Count

Total number of broadcast minutes the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts devoted to the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory from Jan. 21, 2017, to Feb. 10, 2019?

  • Two thousand two hundred and two. (2,202)

(or, about 3 minutes a day, every day, for 750 days.)

Total number of broadcast minutes ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts devoted to the  Senate Intelligence Committee announcement on Feb. 12, 2019, that there was no Trump-Russia collusion?

  • Zero (0)

Reminds me of what my Dad told me years ago: When it comes to the Press, their accusations are boldly written on the front page, but their apologies are written in small type in the back of the newspaper.

Note, in fairness, NBC did print an article about the Senate announcement.
