CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC Sunday Shows Don’t Cover Attempted Murder Of Supreme Court Justice

Authored by Zachary Stieber via The Epoch Times,

Many news networks on June 12 omitted mention of the recent attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, even though some touched on issues facing the nation’s top court.


All Sunday morning shows on CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC did not cover the attempted killing, which took place on June 8.

Fox News covered the topic during “Fox News Sunday.”

Several shows brought up the Supreme Court in other contexts.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Dana Bash noted that the Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade before asking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) about the upcoming midterm elections. Bash also mentioned the nation’s top court declined to take up a case involving elections in Pennsylvania.

Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” only mentioned the Supreme Court once, when asking Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife.

The Supreme Court was not brought up on CBS’s “Face the Nation” or ABC’s “This Week.”

“It is stunningly unprofessional of major media outlets to consciously ignore news of the threat to Justice Kavanaugh,” Jeffrey McCall, a communications professor at DePauw University, told The Epoch Times in an email, describing what happened as “the journalism of omission.”
