<p>After making no mention of it on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning, NBC continued its streak of ignoring the militant atheism and liberalism of the North Carolina man accused of killing three Muslim-Americans during Thursday&rsquo;s <em>NBC Nightly News</em>.&nbsp;</p>

<p>While none of the three networks have alluded to Craig Stepehn Hicks&rsquo;s liberal beliefs, what differed from each of the past two network news cycles was that CBS dropped any mention of Hicks&rsquo;s atheism after correspondent Vicente Arenas had included it in reports on Wednesday&rsquo;s <em>CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley</em> and Thursday&rsquo;s <em>CBS This Morning</em>.&nbsp;Over ABC, however, <em>World News Tonight with David Muir</em> did highlight Hicks&rsquo;s atheism after having brought it up both the night before and on Thursday&rsquo;s <em>Good Morning America</em>.&nbsp;</p>
