CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS Blackout Coverage Of Elon Musk Twitter Files Leaks

Fake news explained in one stat: CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, and ABC have spent just 14 minutes combined covering the ‘Twitter Files’.

Liberal media networks NBC News, CBS News, ABC News, and CNN largely ignored the “Twitter files” on the air, with only MSNBC offering substantial coverage of the company’s internal documents.


Elon Musk and Matt Taibbi revealed the “Twitter Files” on December 2, a thread revealing the inner communications of Twitter employees and U.S. lawmakers surrounding the censorship of NY Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story.

CBS News, ABC News, and NBC News have not discussed the Twitter files.

“You look now, and they’re talking of course about Hunter Biden’s laptop. They’re in the middle of this Twitter thing that I swear I’ve tried to read through a thousand times and figure out exactly what they’re trying to prove, and if they’re proving anything, what, maybe that Twitter made decisions that they didn’t like,” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said on Monday, briefly alluding to the files.

The Monday evening newscasts were filled with discussions about Twitter, including criticisms of Musk and the re-release of Twitter Blue. One thing missing was that the Twitter files never came up on the networks, except a brief reference on NBC News when a reporter discussed how former top Twitter official Yoel Roth was forced to leave his home after receiving death threats.

“Do the Twitter files show evidence of left-wing bias on Twitter?,” Hasan asked rhetorically.

On Dec. 4, the major Sunday shows on ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN devoted a total of seven seconds to the story, prompting Twitter CEO Elon Musk to sound off on the overwhelming silence.

When asked for comment, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, and CNN did not respond to Fox News Digital when asked why they skipped coverage of the Twitter files, if they believe it is important to inform viewers about the story, or whether they plan to cover future reports on internal Twitter documents.

The fifth installment of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” revealed that staffers believed that tweets written by former President Trump around the events of Jan. 6 had not actually violated its policies against incitement despite the company saying so at the time.
