Accuracy in Media

The Associated Press reported over half of State Department visitors who didn’t work in government were Clinton Foundation donors, but the report was not featured in any headlines and not on any homepage of ABC News, CNN and NBC News. But, it was on the CBS News homepage, albeit not at the top of the homepage. By “not featured,” we mean that the report’s findings were not highlighted in headlines specifically.

ABC News: “Future of Clinton Foundation Hinges on Election

CBS News: “Head of Clinton Foundation prepares for a Clinton presidency,” “Clinton gets defensive over link between Clinton Foundation, State Department.”

CNN: “Trump, RNC Seize on New Report,” which discusses the AP report’s findings, yet the headline is not what you’d expect.

NBC News: No feature article nor headline on their homepage (see below)
