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

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