[See NewsBusters for more.] Despite a combined six hours of air time, ABC and NBC on Friday morning skipped the latest release of Hillary Clinton e-mails, 66 of which contained classified messages. According to Fox News, “In one email, Clinton even seemed to coach a top adviser on how to send secure information outside secure channels.” Still, this wasn’t enough of a story to warrant coverage on ABC or NBC. Instead, Good Morning America devoted five minutes and 52 seconds to the upcoming Powerball drawing. NBC’s Today offered five and a half minutes to the lottery, but nothing on Clinton. On CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose allowed 19 seconds on the topic (out of a possible two hours of air time).
