ABC's morning and evening newscasts, as of the evening of 11 March 2016, have yet to cover the announcement by Washington, D.C. law enforcement officials on 10 March 2106 that Mikhail Lesin, a former advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin, died in November 2015 of "blunt force injuries of the head." The 11 March 2016 edition of NBC Nightly News devoted a full report on the Lesin's death, while earlier in the day, CBS This Morning aired a 21-second news brief on the story.
