After having ignored the story on Wednesday night, CBS and NBC arrived on scene Thursday morning with coverage of an indictment in the rape of a 10-year-old Ohio girl and subsequent abortion in Indiana. But on CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today, neither cared to point out the man who’s confessed to raping her is an illegal immigrant and, in the case of the former, they implied the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade will cause there to be more incidents like this.

The case — which had seemed like dubious based on a single story and single source from the Indianapolis Star — fetched 28 seconds on Today with co-host Craig Melvin sharing in a news brief that “[a]n Ohio man has been charged with raping a 10-year-old girl in a case that’s garnered national attention.”
