<p>While the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; of ABC, CBS, and NBC all covered on Monday night the developments at the United Nations (U.N.) and the meeting between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, it was ABC&rsquo;s World News Tonight and <em>NBC Nightly News</em> that failed to go the distance and report that Obama&rsquo;s disastrous rebel training initiative in Syria had been suspended.</p>

<p>In contrast, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> not only covered the announcement from the Pentagon but led the newscast with the story before turning to the scene at the U.N. Anchor Scott Pelley declared in the opening tease that <strong>&ldquo;the U.S. shuts down it&rsquo;s effort to train Syrian opposition forces, acknowledging an embarrassing failure.&rdquo;</strong></p>
