It's no wonder we see so much ignorance.

The latest State Department scandal, involving a possible cover-up of sexual misconduct by an ambassador and security officials, was only newsworthy enough to merit one full report each on ABC and NBC's morning and evening newscasts before the two networks moved on. NBC led Tuesday's Today with the "damaging documents" concerning the "possibly illegal...behavior", but ignored it the following morning. NBC Nightly News hasn't even touched the story yet.

ABC arrived late to covering the allegations on Tuesday's World News, but Good Morning America has yet to mention the issue as of Wednesday. CBS broke their scoop on the scandal on Monday's CBS This Morning, and covered it as well on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd filed a full report on the NBC morning show about the "allegations of prostitution and pedophilia, and allegations that those crimes were somehow covered up or not looked into" by the State Department. Todd noted that "NBC News has obtained documents related to ongoing investigations into some disturbing allegations...A State Department memo says the ambassador...'routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children.'"
