<p>On Wednesday, ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight</em> and <em>NBC Nightly News </em>neglected to cover two separate stories on the business and news media fronts as Al Jazeera America announced that it will cease operations in April while General Electric made clear that it will move its headquarters to Boston after 41 years in Connecticut because of high taxes.&nbsp;</p>

<p>In contrast, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> offered dual news briefs on both stories totaled 29 seconds with anchor Scott Pelley citing<strong> &ldquo;[s]lumping oil prices&rdquo;</strong> as a reason for the Qatar-based parent network Al Jazeera deciding to shutter its liberal American venture.&nbsp;</p>
