<p>On Thursday night, the top English and Spanish broadcast networks made no mention of the latest surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal as an Associated Press (AP) investigation found that the number of delays for veterans seeking care has not improved as the scandal approaches its first anniversary.&nbsp;</p>

<p>In the article, the AP&rsquo;s David B. Caruso reported that <strong>&ldquo;VA statistics show that the number of patients facing long waits has not declined, even after Congress gave the department an extra $16.3 billion last summer to shorten waits for care.&rdquo;</strong></p>
