In another embarrassing immigration policy reversal to take things back to the way former President Trump handled them, President Biden ordered the construction of the border wall to resume or at least to fill in large gaps left in Arizona sectors that were left unfinished by his order to halt. And despite the order coming down on Thursday, the morning and evening flagship newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC blacked out border wall news.
Instead of reporting on Biden building back border wall, ABC’s World News Tonight spent 49 seconds griping about Justice Samuel Alito mocking foreign critics of his ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. On CBS Evening News, spent 19 seconds on fretting about a Hersey candy shortage for Halloween. Meanwhile, NBC Nightly News spent over two minutes (2:18) on stoking fear of sharks in the water.
In stark contrast, Fox News Channel’s Special Report dedicated over two and half minutes (2:34) to sections of the border wall getting completed at some point in the future.
