<p>It&rsquo;s been quite the Tuesday on the bias by omission front for the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; of ABC, CBS, and NBC as along with ignoring an Associated Press story on over 70 mass graves in ISIS territory being discovered, the same broadcast network morning and evening newscasts also punted on Secretary of State John Kerry lecturing the media to not cover terrorism as frequently.</p>

<p>Somehow, ABC snuck this story onto its airwaves, but it lasted for just 24 seconds while nearly the entire country was asleep just past 4:00 a.m. during <em>America This Morning</em>. In contrast, Fox News Channel&rsquo;s <em>Special Report with Bret Baier </em>spent an entire segment eviscerating Kerry&rsquo;s pronouncement that the media comply with suggestions to not inform viewers about acts of terrorism.</p>
