<p>[For more, see video cross-posted at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2014/06/04/nbc-cbs-skip-lat…;.] As the Veterans Affairs scandal engulfing the Obama administration spread into Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, only ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday found time to cover the latest developments. GMA news reader Amy Robach revealed, "We're learning those secret waiting lists were also kept at ten facilities in these four Midwestern western states with nearly 100 veterans waiting more than three months for treatment." Despite the eight hours of air time available to the three networks, CBS and NBC avoided the story. ABC allowed 21 seconds. Obviously, the prisoner swap involving a U.S. soldier and five Taliban terrorists has rightly dominated the news. However, The four-hour-long Today show still found time to devote five minutes and 13 seconds on the subject of "six months to six pack" abs. CBS This Morning offered three minutes and 50 seconds to the phenomenon of "urban farming." Clearly, time was available.</p>
