Cable news networks CNN and MSNBC's primetime shows Friday night did not mention President Trump's major peace deal, which established "full diplomatic relations between Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain."

"This is a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East. Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region," said a statement released by the U.S., Israel, and Bahrain.

CNN covered the Israel-Bahrain agreement during afternoon programming on Friday.

MSNBC spent less than two minutes covering the peace deal throughout Friday. Their longest segment on the agreement lasted one minute and 22 seconds when anchor Ayman Mohyeldin asked his panel why Trump announced the deal on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
