<p>Following the media frenzy in July over the death of Zimbabwe&rsquo;s Cecil the Lion, the coverage was decidedly different on Monday evening when ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight</em> and the <em>CBS Evening News</em> failed to inform their viewers of the fact that officials in the authoritarian country would not be pressing charges against American dentist Dr. Walter Palmer for shooting Cecil.</p>

<p>Meanwhile, NBC Nightly News did the bare minimum in acknowledging the decision by the authorities in Zimbabwe with a 21-second news brief about Palmer <strong>&ldquo;appear[ing] to be off the hook&rdquo;</strong> after creating<strong> &ldquo;the firestorm over the killing of Cecil the Lion.&rdquo;</strong></p>
