[See NewsBusters for more.] The Jussie Smollett hoax trial went to the jury on Wednesday afternoon, but you wouldn’t know it on Good Morning America. Since the start of the trial, the ABC show has offered ZERO coverage of the claims that the actor lied about a MAGA mob assaulting him. It seems as though GMA’s reporters and hosts are embarrassed of their 2019 credulous, fawning interview with Smollett. Here’s a larger question: When was the last time Good Morning America covered or mentioned Smollett’s crumbling claims at all? According to a Nexis and Snapstream search, it was February 12, 2020. That’s 665 days ago.
