<p>On Monday, ABC&rsquo;s <em>World NewsTonight</em> and<em> NBC Nightly News</em> saw no reason to keep their viewers abreast of two embarrassing failures in Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein&rsquo;s recount efforts to alter the presidential election results as the recount ended in Wisconsin while a judge blocked it in Pennsylvania.&nbsp;</p>

<p>With ABC and NBC missing in action, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> covered the recount news, but barely as anchor Scott Pelley only mustered a 25-second news brief at the conclusion of the newscast&rsquo;s political coverage that failed to even mention Stein as the major driving force of the recounts.</p>
