There were two different yet related forms of bias by omission during the broadcast evening newscasts Monday night. While CBS Evening News ignored the New York attorney general’s office releasing thousands of pages of documents and hours of video testimony from the investigation into former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), ABC’s World News Tonight ignored how that evidence exposed the role of their former reporter, CNN’s Chris Cuomo played in coordinating the response from his brother’s PR team.
Instead of reporting on the newly released evidence against Andrew, CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell spent over two minutes (2:12) hyping Cyber Monday deals. She also gushed about the Christmas decorations at the White House (19 seconds).
