[See NewsBusters for more.] The bombshell news that Hillary Clinton will finally turn over her private E-mail server, as well as the confirmation that her electronic communications as Secretary of State included top secret material, warranted a mere nine and half minutes on Wednesday's network morning shows. This is out of a combined eight hours of available air time on NBC, CBS and ABC.  ABC's Good Morning America offered the least amount of time, a scant one minute and 40 seconds. CBS This Morning allowed three minutes and 38 seconds on the growing controversy enveloping Mrs. Clinton. Yet, the show's hosts investigated Trump and his latest comments for four minutes and 55 seconds.
