ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC all skip John Kerry controversy over alleged leaking of Israeli intel to Iran

While I was briefing Trump, Kerry was briefing Iran

 There's been a widespread blackout in media coverage of the growing controversy surrounding Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry over his alleged sharing of Israeli intel with Iran. 

There has been intense backlash after the New York Times reported that Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif alleged in audiotape that Kerry told him that Israel had struck around 200 Iranian targets in Syria.

The Iranian leader admitted he was shocked by the purported admission, as reported by The New York Times.

While Kerry has called the claims "unequivocally false" and such a conversation "never" occurred during or since his tenure as Secretary of State, GOP lawmakers are calling for investigations and for his resignation from the Biden administration if the allegations turn out to be true. 

Apparently, none of this was newsworthy to ABC, CBS, and NBC, which dedicated zero coverage to the controversy on Monday and Tuesday during their morning and evening news programs, according to Grabien transcripts. 

And despite being a 24-hour news network, MSNBC also skipped any mention of Kerry's alleged chat with Iran. 

NN only addressed the Kerry controversy twice on Tuesday, once during its "Early Start" program in the morning and a brief mention by Jake Tapper during his interview with Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Neither CNN nor MSNBC made any mention of Kerry on their most-watched shows in primetime.

So let me make sure I understand this. The reliable source, an Iranian General who never lies, had 200 sites in Syria destroyed. Until Kerry told him it was the Israelis, he assumed A. It was Jewish laser beams from outer space ala Marjorie Taylor Greene B. Kansas and Nebraska were bombing Iranian sites in Syria C. Asssad was unhappy with the amount of aid he was receiving from Iran, so he destroyed the 200 sites. D. It was the Chinese/ Russians/ North Koreans.
In any case, Kerry learn from the best. "President Donald Trump discussed classified information provided by a U.S. ally regarding a planned Islamic State operation during an Oval Office meeting on May 10, 2017 with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Two Israeli intelligence officials confirmed privately that Trump's disclosure of the intelligence to Russia was "for us, our worst fears confirmed." They said the disclosure jeopardizes Israel's "arrangement with America which is unique to the world of intelligence sharing" and that Israeli officials were "boiling mad and demanding answers".

Biden is the President ....
Trump keeps living in the brains of these haters ...LOL
At any rate ... If Zarif is lying .... A)then why is the USA sitting with a bunch of liars who cannot be trusted
B) if Kerry is lying then he gave top secrets to an enemy and stabbed its allies in the back
and C) the New York Times is lying ... ... if that's in fact true ..... then Kerry has to come out and say that the New York Times are liars ..
