ABC Skip News CPAC Attendee ‘Tested Positive’ for Deadly Coronavirus

It seems as though nothing can shake the ABC News blackout of any story related to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) from its news programs. That disinterested played out again during Sunday’s Good Morning America despite overnight revelations that a CPAC attendee was diagnosed with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Instead of reporting how thousands of attendees were put at risk, they spent almost two minutes (1:57) bashing the Trump administration for “mismanaging” the response to the virus generally.

In contrast, NBC’s Sunday Today noted how both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were at the conference.

“There is also news that an attendee at CPAC, the conservative action group that met in Washington last month that was attended – this conference, by the President, the Vice President, and administration officials that an attendee tested positive for the virus, bringing it closer to the White House,” reported NBC correspondent Hans Nichols.
