<p>Just shy of 24 hours after U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen halted President Barack Obama&rsquo;s executive amnesty, the major broadcast networks displayed their palpable opposition to the ruling during their Tuesday night broadcasts, lamenting that it <strong>&ldquo;dashes American dreams for millions of families under the threat of deportation&rdquo; </strong>after Wednesday was set <strong>&ldquo;to be a historic day for millions of illegal immigrants&rdquo;</strong> when they could apply for legal status.&nbsp;</p>

<p>All told, the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; of ABC, CBS, and NBC had full segments on the story with each having individual moments of bias and a minuscule 18 seconds of highlighting those against Obama&rsquo;s executive action (not including quotes from Hanen&rsquo;s ruling) throughout their 5 minutes and 58 seconds of coverage.</p>
