[See NewsBusters for more.] If it wasn’t already clear that the networks want to avoid talking about the crisis at the border, that fact was proven all over again on Thursday. Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced on Wednesday that, due to the federal government’s refusal to deal with the illegal immigration problem, he will be sending busloads of illegals to the steps of the Capitol in Washington D.C. Yet, so committed to ignoring the disaster at the border, the evening newscasts on Wednesday completely ignored the Republican's announcement and CBS Mornings on Thursday allowed just nine seconds. (The other two networks were again silent on Thursday.) Additionally, CBS’s coverage doesn’t really amount to anything. It was simply a clip of other journalists talking about the move in the show open.
