<p>Despite swirling controversy over the Obama Justice Department&rsquo;s decision to censor 911 transcripts of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen pledging allegiance to ISIS during his shooting rampage, on Monday, ABC&rsquo;s <em>Good Morning America</em> and NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> avoided any mention of the glaring omission.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;</p>

<p>The ABC morning show barely even noticed that the 911 calls were set to be released on Monday. Wrapping up a report on the ongoing investigation, correspondent Linzie Janis only offered a single sentence: &ldquo;And today, authorities will release partial transcripts of the gunman&#39;s communications with hostage negotiators during the three-hour standoff that night.&rdquo;</p>
