Hats off to NewsBusters for spotlighting the fact that “ABC, CBS, and NBC all covered on Monday night the developments at the United Nations (U.N.) and the meeting between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, it was ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News that failed to go the distance and report that Obama’s disastrous rebel training initiative in Syria had been suspended.”
