<p>[See <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2017/04/21/abc-nbc-c…; target="_blank">NewsBusters</a> for more.] Despite a combined six hours of available air time, ABC and NBC on Friday morning skipped Donald Trump&rsquo;s dramatic intervention to free an American aid worker who has been detained in an Egyptian prison for three years. Only <em>CBS This Morning</em> bothered to cover the effort to get Aya Hijazi back to her home in Virginia. Norah O&rsquo;Donnell explained, &ldquo;An American jailed in Egypt is back in the U.S. after an intervention by the Trump administration.&rdquo; Margaret Brennan added, &ldquo;Earlier this month, President Trump welcomed Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to the White House effectively resetting a restrained relationship with the Middle Eastern ally.&rdquo;</p>
