Posted on 12 October 2017

<p>The prosecution rested on October 11 in the corruption trial of New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. Yet, with a whole day of reporting to work with, CNN has only mentioned this story for a total of five minutes on 2 shows. On October 11, <em>The Lead With Jake Tapper </em>gave the story 3 minutes and 9 seconds of coverage. Tapper was the only anchor to cover the story the day that the prosecution rested, with <em>CNN Newsroom</em> covering it for 2 minutes and 2 seconds the following morning.</p>
