In Friday night’s installment of bias by omission, NBC Nightly News chose not to cover a deadly suicide bombing in Pakistan at a political rally that left over 120 people dead while this same newscast and the CBS Evening News didn’t fit into their newscasts time for a news brief to pay homage to the now-identified U.S. soldier who died a day earlier in Afghanistan.

ABC’s World News Tonight and anchor David Muir spent 19 seconds near the end of the newscast’s A-Block on the latest identified U.S. soldier to die in combat.
