ABC, NBC, and CBS News have given zero airtime to the “Squad” Hamas-supporting Democrats following the terrorist attacks against Israel on October 7 that resulted in the deaths of at least 1,400 Israelis.

The broadcast networks’ evening newscasts between Oct. 7 – Oct. 22 have not reported on a single comment or action made by the anti-Israel Democrats, allowing them to escape scrutiny from the public and presenting a false image that Democrats are unified in their support of Israel, according to a new study from the Media Research Center.

Analysts said that despite the networks giving a total of 525 minutes of air time to discuss what’s been happening in Gaza and with Israel, not not one of three broadcast networks made a single mention of the “Squad” Democrats’ numerous actions and remarks against Israel.  The study included these seven members of the group: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Reps. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), Cori Bush (D-MO), and Summer Lee (D-PA).

Such remarks include “calling Israel apartheid,” “accusing Israel of war crimes,” and not “cosigning” an “anti-Hamas resolution.” Following the attack on October 7, the study found that not one of the broadcast evening news mentioned that Omar joined Bush and Tlaib in calling on Congress to cease military aid for Israel.

On October 11, a resolution was introduced which affirmed support of Israel and condemned Hamas’s “barbaric” attack. Not one of those 7 Squad members signed it and that was never mentioned on CBS, ABC or NBC.

Omar, Bush and Tlaib all repeatedly promoted the lie blaming Israel for bombing a hospital inside Gaza, which was actually the result of a rocket misfired by Hamas hitting a parking lot, not a hospital. Again, none of this was reported by those three news broadcasts.

On October 17, Tlaib tweeted the false claim and it remains on X at the time of this publication.

“Israel just bombed the Baptist Hospital killing 500 Palestinians (doctors, children, patients) just like that,” Tlaib posted on social media. “POTUS this is what happens when you refuse to facilitate a ceasefire & help de-escalate. Your war and destruction only approach has opened my eyes and many Palestinian Americans and Muslims (sic) Americans like me. We will remember where you stood.”

Omar also promoted it and none of this was mentioned in the evening news broadcasts on those three networks.

At a pro-Hamas rally at the U.S. Capitol on October 18, Tlaib repeated the lie when she told the crowd, “[We] continue to watch people think it’s okay to bomb a hospital …” and, according to MRC, none of this was deemed important for the evening broadcasts to include in its coverage.
