Amidst all the news coverage about Donald Trump’s trip to Mexico on Wednesday, there was one other major story in Latin America as Brazil removed its corrupt and far-left President for questionable behavior with the country’s finances. Of course, it nearly saw nary a mention on the broadcast network evening newscasts as ABC and CBS were out to lunch on Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment. 

Somehow, NBC didn’t let their firm ties with Brazil after being the U.S. broadcaster for the Rio Olympic Games (which concluded six days ago) stand in the way as NBC Nightly News fill-in anchor Savannah Guthrie spent 21 seconds on Rousseff.
