FOUR FLED IN OHIO! CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS Barely Covering Ohio's Toxic Train Wreck

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.23

We’re witnessing one of the largest toxic ecological and industrial disasters of the last decade play out in East Palestine, Ohio —only, we aren’t really because mainstream media outlets like CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC are barely covering the tragedy.

The story should be top-of-the-fold, headline material —it’s not even on their home pages at the moment. Coverage on their stages has been incredibly limited, as well.

From The Daily Wire:

Analysts from the Media Research Center examined all broadcast coverage of the incident between February 4 and February 14; the conservative nonprofit concluded that the three major networks “fell just shy of a combined 30 minutes” on the matter. CBS devoted 9 minutes and 53 seconds of total airtime to the scandal, while ABC had 9 minutes and 31 seconds, followed by NBC with 8 minutes and 52 seconds.

East Palestine citizens were told they could return safely to their homes less than one week after the controlled burn; residents and first responders have since reported worrisome health issues such as coughing, sore throats, headaches, and diarrhea. The outlets nevertheless refused to continue reporting on the story: CBS offered 1 minute and 4 seconds of additional coverage, while NBC offered 38 seconds and ABC ceased reporting on the incident entirely.

“Rather than healthy skepticism, reporters approached statements by Norfolk Southern and the Ohio EPA, both of whom had a blatant incentive to downplay the seriousness of the situation, with slavish credulity,” analysts at the Media Research Center wrote. “Perhaps this explains why they haven’t gone back to the story: because they abandoned it too early before asking any meaningful questions. For the broadcast networks to revisit East Palestine now would be to admit that their prior abandonment of it was an error born out of laziness and a lack of curiosity.”
