Over the weekend of September 29-30, 2012 the Univision network broke major news in the Fast and
Furious gunwalking scandal. They found 57 previously unreported guns
used in crimes by Mexican cartels, but ABC, CBS and NBC have yet to
report the Spanish-language network’s findings. There were zero mentions
on Sunday night’s ABC's <em>World News</em> and CBS's <em>Evening News</em> (NBC's <em>Nightly News</em>
was pre-empted by Ryder Cup coverage) or on any of Monday’s morning
shows. The blackout on ABC’s broadcasts is particularly confounding
since they have an excerpt from Univision's September 30, 2012 report on ABC's <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-furious-scandal-details-e… Web site</a>.</p>

The refusal by ABC, CBS or NBC to report the findings is remarkable
since the Univision report not only contains politically explosive
information to a sitting administration at the height of the election
season but also compelling human tragedy. Univision’s Gerardo Reyes and
Santiago Wills reported “Indirectly, the United States government played
a role in the massacre” of 14 Mexican teens in a one-story house by
“supplying some of the firearms uses by the cartel murders.”</p>
