ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN spent only a few minutes on the bombshell report, according to a Media Research Center study.
ABC and NBC did not cover the story at all during the first week after the bombshell Hill report.
CNN gave the revelations less than four minutes of air time and CBS covered the story for just over a minute.
In contrast, mainstream evening news programs have spent over 1,000 minutes since January 20 covering whether Russia tried to boost Donald Trump in the 2016 election and whether the campaign colluded with Russia.
Around one fifth of the evening newscasts' Trump coverage this year has been on the Russia collusion theory.
