Accuracy in Media

The Daily Caller first broke a story yesterday afternoon, where an IT staffer for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was arrested at Dulles airport in the D.C. metropolitan area. The staffer, Imwan Awan, was arrested by the FBI after wiring $283,000 to his native Pakistan. His wife and children had already left the country and were permitted to do so by airport authorities, who confiscated $12,000 found on the wife before letting them go.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former DNC chief, only fired Awan when news of the arrest was made public.

The story broke after 5 PM on Tuesday, but the liberal media only reported on it Wednesday afternoon. Does it take almost an entire day to vet this story, considering the details that the Daily Caller had reported on?

ABC News reported on it after 6 PM, CBS News reported on it after 2 PM, Washington Post published an article at 2:44 PM and NBC News right before 2 PM.
