Why is SOPA not part of the evening news?

Perhaps because most of the parent companies of TV news broadcasts are staunch supporters of SOPA:

‘Dimiero based his report on Lexis-Nexis searches which includes transcripts of nighttime newscasts.

Comcast/NBCUniversal (which owns MSNBC and NBC News), Viacom (CBS), News Corporation (Fox News), Time Warner (CNN) and Disney (ABC) are all listed as supporters of the bill. ABC and CBS are also listed as separate supporters of the bill.’

Just in case you were wondering why TV news is igniring this, if it is such a hot topic…

Isn’t a lie of omission still a lie, when it comes to building up trust in your news-sources?

Or is it unreasonable for us to expect news reporters to report news honestly and thoroughly, regardless of how it affects their corporate owners?  Because if we cannot, we must openly realize this and re-categorize ‘news reporters’ as ‘corporate spin officers’ and view all they say through the appropriate lens…

…and people wonder why the legacy media is in its death-throws…
