Not that this should come as any surprise, but according to this report from Media Matters' Ben Dimero, traditional media companies in the United States are so enthusiastic about SOPA, that they failed to make any mention of the "fury over the bill during their primetime broadcasts."

Controversial legislation that the co-founder of Google has warned "would put us on a par with the most oppressive nations in the world" has received virtually no coverage from major American television news outlets during their evening newscasts and opinion programming. The parent companies of most of these networks, as well as two of the networks themselves, are listed as official "supporters" of this legislation on the U.S. House of Representatives' website.
