ABC’s World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News Remain Silent on Gruber


<p><em>See more in the <a href="…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the Newsbusters blog.</em></p>

<p>On Monday, ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight with David Muir </em>and <em>NBC Nightly News</em> continued to ignore the news surrounding videos unearthed of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber praising <strong>&ldquo;lack of transparency&rdquo;</strong> as a <strong>&ldquo;political advantage&rdquo;</strong> and insulting voters as stupid regarding the law&rsquo;s passage and contents. With tonight&rsquo;s omissions, the blackout of coverage on Gruber from these two programs now stands at ten days.</p>

<p>Thus far, ABC has only mentioned Gruber once since the first video surfaced on November 7 and it was saved for its Sunday morning political talk show <em>This Week with George Stephanopoulos</em>. When it comes to NBC&rsquo;s total number of mentions, they have only been able to muster two total mentions of Gruber with one on its Sunday morning talk show <em>Meet the Press</em> and another on Monday morning&rsquo;s <em>Today</em>.</p>
