The broadcast networks morning and evening newscasts, along with the cable news networks, have largely ignored the 31 January 2017 report from Axios's Mike Allen that Hillary Clinton's campaign team blames President Obama for her loss in the 2016 election. Charlie Rose mentioned the revelation in passing on the 2 February 2017 edition of CBS This Morning: "You have reports, for example, that the Hillary campaign thought it began with President Obama not doing enough in terms of the Russian hacking." On 1 February 2017, Fox Business Network's Kennedy program devoted part of panel discussion segment to the Axios report.
