New Report: Broadcasters Obsess Over Trump Jr., Ignore 'Hillary Clinton's Russia-Uranium Scandal'
One gets 62 minutes of coverage in four days, the other three minutes in two years

They were obsessed: ABC, CBS, NBC evening news shows have been dominated by one subject this week: Donald J. Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower — “a meeting in which apparently no favors, money or meaningful information was exchanged,” writes analyst Geoffrey Dickens, in a new study for Newsbusters.org, a conservative press watchdog.
In the past four nights, the “Big Three” networks devoted over 62 minutes of airtime to Mr. Trump’s story he said, after tabulating the content of the coverage.
But those same news sources all but ignored “Hillary Clinton’s Russia-Uranium scandal” two years ago the analyst noted.
