[See NewsBusters for more.] The networks this spring and summer blasted states like Georgia for election security laws, deriding them as racist power grabs. But when the deeply liberal and Democratic state of New York suffered a massive debacle on Tuesday, the networks were virtually silent. ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday offered ZERO coverage to New York City’s mayoral race descending into chaos as over a hundred thousand test ballots accidentally were included in the voting totals. NBC’s Today show allowed a scant 31 seconds and CBS This Morning mirrored that with just 32 seconds of coverage. In total, these three morning shows are six hours long, but allowed just 63 seconds.
