More in the cross-post on the MRC's NewsBusters blog.

During his speech to the United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly on Wednesday, President Barack Obama made a striking, unusual and ridiculous comparison between the reign of terror taking place in the Middle East at the hands of the brutal Islamic terrorist group ISIS, the ongoing unrest in Ukraine, and the unrest that took place in Ferguson, Missouri last month after the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

As far as the any of the major broadcast networks bringing up this absurd comparison on their evening newscasts, neither ABC, CBS, or NBC gave that portion of the President’s speech any attention or allowed it to see the light of day.
