<p>[See <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2016/01/12/networks-…; for more.] The three networks on Tuesday mostly glossed over the Democratic candidates participating in a forum that included radical questions about &ldquo;white privilege,&rdquo; &ldquo;white terrorism&rdquo; and reparations. Instead, ABC and CBS focused on fun, light queries at the Iowa event. NBC ignored it entirely.&nbsp; On <em>CBS This Morning</em>, Nancy Cordes allowed just one of the more incendiary questions to be mentioned. She explained, &ldquo;Democratic candidates took questions from a panel at the minority oriented forum. But this one came from a college junior.&rdquo; Cordes then featured a clip of a Drake University student demanding, &ldquo;Secretary Clinton, can you tell us what the term white privilege means to you.&rdquo;</p>
