[More in the cross-post on the MRC's NewsBusters blog.]

The 30 October 2015 edition of NBC Nightly News set aside just 34 seconds of air time to the Republican National Committee suspending its planned February 2016 debate with NBC. The evening newscast surrounded this coverage with over two minutes of reporting on other 2016 presidential campaign developments, including the latest NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll results, and the aftermath of the recent CNBC debate — focusing on the spat between Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush. By contrast, ABC's World News Tonight and CBS Evening News devoted full reports to the RNC's suspension of the NBC debate, which was going to be co-hosted by Telemundo.
