<p>[<em>More in the cross-post on the MRC&#39;s <a href="…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.</em>]</p>

<p>CBS was the only Big Three network on the evening of 18 October 2016 and the morning 19 October 2016to continue reporting on the allegations of a quid pro quo between the FBI and the State Department related to Hillary Clinton&#39;s e-mail scandal. <em>CBS Evening News</em>&#39;s Scott Pelley gave a brief about Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy&#39;s denial of a quid pro quo. The following morning, Charlie Rose gave a brief on the&nbsp;19 October 2016 edition of <em>CBS This Morning</em> about a former FBI official admitting that he proposed it.</p>

<p>Meanwhile, ABC was too busy devoting air time on the&nbsp;18 October 2016 edition of <em>World News Tonight</em> to a rare occurrence on <em>The Price is Right</em>. The&nbsp;19 October 2016 edition of <em>Good Morning America</em> also set aside over four minutes to Michelle Obama&#39;s Versace gown at the state dinner the previous evening. The segment also spotlighted her &quot;fashion legacy,&quot; as an on-screen graphic put it.</p>

<p>NBC&#39;s newscasts also ignored the latest developments in the FBI/State Department story. Instead, the 18 October 2016 edition of <em>NBC Nightly News</em> aired a minute and 40-second report on Bob Dylan&#39;s silence so far in response to receiving a Nobel Prize. The&nbsp;19 October 2016 edition of <em>Today</em> also devoted nearly three minutes to the state dinner at the White House.</p>
