As you can see, Fox News was the only site to even have the story visible at all on the initial view.

But let’s recap what the networks thought was important:

  • ABC: The affair of a green beret
  • CBS: Climate change (of course)
  • NBC: Mormons, recovery of stabbing victim and Bill Clinton
  • MSNBC: Chris Christie’s Bridgegate II (unreal)
  • Fox News: The KFC Hoax
  • CNN: Soccer
  • Washington Post: WWII art
  • Wall Street Journal: Activity tracking devices
  • Miami Herald: LeBron James
  • The New York Times: Comfortable Hospitals and…the Tea Party is racist
  • Los Angeles Times: Plane crash…from 2013
