South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott

Tim Scott becomes 1st African American Senator from South since 1881 and Liberal News Shows are Quiet!

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley on Monday announced she will appoint Republican U.S. Representative Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate to replace the departing Senator Jim DeMint, but though he will become the “first African American U.S. Senator from the South since Blanche Bruce of Mississippi in 1881” and the only black — Democrat or Republican — in the current Senate, neither ABC nor CBS mentioned the news Monday night.

Yes, the newscasts were dominated by the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy, yet the NBC Nightly News managed to squeeze in 24 seconds to note Scott’s historic appointment.

On ABC’s World News: Diane Sawyer allocated two minutes and thirty seconds to calls for more gun control, one minute and twenty seconds to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s health following a fall which caused a concussion and 35 seconds to the death of Democrat Daniel Inouye, president pro-tempore of the Senate.

CBS Evening News devoted three minutes and thirty seconds to gun control (but that included anchor Scott Pelley noting a new poll found 66 percent said stricter gun laws would have done “little or nothing” to prevent what occurred in Connecticut and Pelley in an interview segment pushing back against Michael Bloomberg on gun control), a full story on the fiscal cliff and 30 seconds on Inouye.
