ABC Skips Corzine Resignation, CBS and NBC Avoid Democratic Label

(By Brad Wilmouth, Media Research Center) - ABC's 'World News' this week failed to mention the development that former New Jersey Democratic Senator and former Governor Jon Corzine is mired in a scandal involving $600 million in missing funds from the financial firm MF Global which he headed until today.

The 'CBS Evening News' and the 'NBC Nightly News' so far have not mentioned Corzine's Democratic Party affiliation as they ran full reports on Tuesday, and on Friday both shows updated viewers after Corzine's resignation.
