When it came to the major broadcast networks covering this breakthrough in their Monday morning news shows, NBC’s <em>Today</em> decided not to inform their viewers of the story.&nbsp;</p><p>Between the two networks that did cover the latest in the VA scandal, ABC and CBS, ABC’s <em>Good Morning America</em> clocked in with the lowest amount of air time (no surprises here) with only a 16 second news brief during the 7:00 a.m. hour. Meanwhile, <em>CBS This Morning</em> had a report from CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes on the bipartisan negotiations and included numerous details of the plan.&nbsp;</p>
