On Monday, ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News failed to devote a full story to Republican Governor Scott Walker (Wisc.) dropping out of the 2016 presidential campaign with the latter only giving Walker a combined 57 seconds at the beginning and end of a report on Ben Carson’s comments about a hypothetical president who was Muslim.

In addition, the two newscasts reserved more time (two minutes and 57 seconds) for the growing rumors over a possible 2016 campaign by Vice President Joe Biden than they did for a conservative governor who was formerly the GOP front-runner (two minutes and three seconds).
