However, unlike its competitors at ABC and NBC, the program aired a full report on the Clinton Foundation’s move that lasted one minute and 42 seconds. Under the pretenses of charitable work, the foundation has furthered the interests of the Clintons and their corporate and wealthy donors across the globe.
