The liberal “Big Three” networks seemed to try everything in their power to not mention Hillary Clinton’s latest E-Mail controversy Wednesday. Throughout all of their news programs, both morning and evening, they gave the E-Mails a total of six minutes, 59 seconds. In stark contrast, they dragged out Trump’s “second amendment people” comment with a whopping 25 minutes, 54 seconds of coverage. “One day after Donald Trump used the second amendment to shoot himself in the foot, Hillary Clinton used her first amendment right to speak out against him,” touted anchor Scott Pelley on CBS Evening News.
ABC’s World News Tonight had the largest disparity in coverage of the two stories Wednesday evening. The network dedicated a mere 38 seconds to the E-Mail controversy, as they mixed it in with other coverage of Clinton. “Today, the Clinton campaign saying, “Hillary Clinton never took actions as Secretary of State because of donations to the Clinton Foundation,” reported Cecilia Vega, “But Trump says the E-Mails exposed pay for play connections.” ABC gave Trump’s comment three minutes, 24 seconds that evening.
On a side note, instead of covering Clinton’s E-Mail controversy ABC chose to lead the night by broadcasting the man climbing Trump Tower. They broadcasted live from the tower for three minutes, 47 seconds, which was not included in larger time total.
