(NewsBusters) - After the media spent the week praying the Boston Marathon bombers wouldn’t have ties to radical Islam, it’s now going to be interesting to see how they report the religious beliefs of the Tsarnaev brothers.

Failing miserably Friday was NBC’s Nightly News which despite airing a 90 minute special broadcast on the ensuing manhunt in Watertown, Massachusetts, according to an examination of the closed-caption transcript didn’t once mention the Tsarnaev’s Muslim connection.

By contrast, both ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS’s Evening News did report it.
