Mainstream News is Failing to Report on Anti-Asian Violence

While ABC, NBC, and Fox aired just a few minutes of coverage, CNN and CBS have not covered the story at all.

Network and cable news largely ignore wave of anti-Asian violence
Cable and network television news outlets have largely failed to cover the recent surge in anti-Asian violence related to the pandemic, even though Asian Amerians have been urging action on the issue. Over the last two weeks since January 28, ABC has shown one segment on the topic on Good Morning America and NBC aired one reporter segment on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. Though MSNBC aired just three segments discussing the violence, it covered the issue the most with almost 20 minutes of airtime. Fox News aired two segments addressing the subject on Fox News @ Night. CNN and CBS have not aired segments discussing the spike. You can't force someone to give a shit, but they can't give a shit if they have no idea what's going on.
