ABC, CBS, NBC ignore CNN’s settlement with Nick Sandmann, analysis finds

The three major networks — ABC, NBC and CBS — ignored CNN’s settlement with Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann, and CNN gave the story less than 30 seconds of airtime, according to a media analysis.

The conservative Media Research Center reported that news of the undisclosed legal settlement reached Jan. 7 met with “blackouts” by the three major networks and MSNBC, a stark contrast from the coverage on the Fox News Channel, which devoted 13 minutes and 28 seconds to the story.

CNN “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter gave the news 29 seconds on his Sunday show, and CNN ran an article on the settlement by senior media correspondent Oliver Darcy on its website.
