Credit where it’s due. During Wednesday’s evening newscasts, CBS Evening News was the only network news program to report on the FBI’s expansive raids of current and former leaders of the United Auto Workers union. The corruption probe had been going on for four years and had netted numerous convictions. Despite all of that, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News completely ignored the story.

“Today, federal agents descended on the homes of some top officials with one of the nation's largest unions. Dean Reynolds reports, this is part of a long-term corruption investigation,” announced fill-in anchor John Dickerson at the top of the segment.

CBS reporter Dean Reynolds noted that the “FBI raids today on the homes of Gary Jones, the current president of the United Auto Workers; and Dennis Williams, his immediate predecessor…” He added that the raids “signaled a drastic escalation of a four-year probe into illegal payments to union officials.”

According to the report: “The corruption investigation has so far led to the convictions eight people linked to the UAW and to Fiat-Chrysler, involving bribes and kickbacks designed to influence the nation's sixth-largest union’s bargaining position at contract talks with automakers.”

You know, the classic underhanded tactics of unions.
