[See NewsBusters for more.] The FBI on Tuesday seized the phone of Congressman Scott Perry, yet you wouldn’t know it if you watched that night’s evening news or Wednesday’s morning news programs. CBS and NBC completely buried the story. ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday allowed a scant 19 seconds to the development, which happened in the wake of the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home. Here’s the quick mention from GMA’s Karl on Wednesday: “And in an entirely separate investigation, Republican Congressman Scott Perry, a staunch Trump ally, revealed overnight that the FBI sized his cell phone, Perry says he was traveling with his family at the time.”
