CNN Ran One Article on Susan Rice on Homepage after “Unmasking” Controversy Emerged

CNN apparently wants to distance itself from the controversy surrounding former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice. Rice is embroiled in controversy over her request to “unmask” (i.e. identify” members of the Trump campaign in intelligence surveillance.

One would assume this would be newsworthy and on the homepage of the CNN website last night, but that was not the case. Only one article [1] was dedicated to Rice, two articles to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and sexual harassment allegations, five articles on North Korea after a missile launch, mixed with a ┬ávariety of other types of news (pop culture, etc.).

Why the glaring omission of digging deeper into the “unmasking” allegations surrounding Susan Rice, CNN?
