After arguably muted coverage of President Trump’s pardons Tuesday evening, ABC and NBC took to whining about former-Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich for showing “no remorse for his crimes” during a press conference outside his Chicago home on Wednesday. But while they were huffing about Blago’s attitude, none of them cared to mention how President Obama had commuted the sentence of unrepentant, Puerto Rican terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera shortly before Trump’s inauguration.

“Out of prison, thanks to President Trump, disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich emerged from his home in Chicago this morning. Celebrating his newfound freedom, with no remorse for his crimes,” ABC chief White House correspondent Jon Karl kicked off his World News Tonight report.

For NBC Nightly News’s part, White House correspondent Peter Alexander reported that Blagojevich had “no remorse for his crimes but praise for the President.” “The President granting clemency to Blagojevich, a poster child of the type of pay-to-play politics Mr. Trump said he would end,” he chided moments later.

But, as NewsBusters reported back in 2017, neither of these networks dared to report how Obama released an unrepentant, communist terrorist back into the public.
