<p><i>CBS Evening News</i> was the sole Big Three evening newscast on 13 March 2015 to cover President Obama's visit to the V.A. hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, where "some vets died before they got treatment, and hospital officials hid those long delays on secret wait lists," as Scott Pelley put it. The CBS program also touted a veteran who poured cold water on the Obama administration's claim that appointment times have improved in the V.A. system. ABC's <i>World News Tonight</i> and <i>NBC Nightly News</i> completely punted on covering the presidential visit and/or the ongoing problems in the veterans's health system.</p>
