The Hill reports that "MSNBC did not cover breaking news of 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett being charged with filing a false police report about an attack in Chicago during its prime-time programs on Wednesday night."

Chicago police announced just before 8 p.m. that Smollett was being charged with faking his own attack, prompting Fox News and CNN to cover the story heavily for the remainder of the evening.

But a review by The Hill of all four MSNBC programs from 8 p.m. to midnight showed no coverage of the Smollett story.

MSNBC did not immediately reply to a request for comment from The Hill.

Honestly, I'm not surprised.
