CBS, NBC Skip Pelosi Threat to Investigate Opposition to Ground Zero Mosque

Only Good Morning America's Jake Tapper on Thursday mentioned the call by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to investigate those who oppose the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero. CBS's Early Show and NBC's Today both skipped any discussion of the subject. So did Wednesday night's network newscasts.
Tapper explained, "And the House top Democrat also called for transparency for who is funding the opposition to the Islamic center." He then featured a clip of Pelosi advocating, "And I have joined those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded."
