Over two years since liberal Maryland and Washington D.C. sued President Trump for allegedly violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, the media’s roars of approval turned into whimpers after a federal appeals court threw out the case.
On June 13, 2017, ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News spent a combined seven minutes (6 minutes, 59 seconds) playing up and glorifying the ill-fated lawsuit. But on Wednesday, they could barely be bothered to report on the outcome; 40 seconds total, with 18 seconds belonging to ABC and the rest going to NBC (22 seconds).
CBS ignored the outcome after dedicating the most time to touting its filing, two minutes and 28 seconds. ABC came in second back then with two minutes and 27 seconds while NBC had two minutes and four seconds.
