On Monday, the morning and evening newscasts of ABC and NBC failed to highlight in their coverage on the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer’s decision to come out in support of whomever President Obama nominates flies in the face of what he said in 2007 about any appointments by then-President George W. Bush.

At no point on ABC’s Good Morning America or World News Tonight and NBC’s Today or NBC Nightly News did Schumer’s flip-flopping fetch even a scant mention as they instead chided and painted Republicans as purely partisan figures in the two days since the conservative Justice died.
