‘GMA’ Anchors Share Who’s Inspired Them

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 22:17

Ahead of the release of Robin Roberts‘ memoir — which is about people who inspired her during her battle with MDS — the “Good Morning America” anchors shared who has inspired them this morning.

Lara Spencer talked about her father and George Stephanopoulos talked about his friend Loring Henderson, who runs a homeless shelter in Lawrence, Kansas. Ginger Zee talked about Brad Edwards, a reporter for the CBS affiliate in Chicago that suffers from a rare disease that affects his balance, and Amy Robach talked about the “GMA” viewers, who have sent “boxes and boxes” of support letters as she continues to battle breast cancer.

“I want everyone to know what an impact that has had on me,” Robach said. “When my alarm clock goes off at 4 o’clock in the morning, I’m inspired by everyone who says, ‘Go get it. You’ve got this. Fight like a girl.’”

Anchors from the “Today” show devoted a week in November to a similar topic.

Video of the “GMA” segment is after the jump. continued…

Edward Snowden Reporting Wins Pulitzer Prize For Washington Post, Guardian

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 21:59

The Washington Post and the U.S. edition of the Guardian have won the top award in journalism — the Pulitzer Prize. They will share the Public Service award for their series of stories on NSA surveillance, as revealed by Edward Snowden, an NSA contractor who gave the top-secret information to the news organizations. The Pulitzer committee said the journalism was “marked by authoritative and insightful reports that helped the public understand how the disclosures fit into the larger framework of national security.”

Barton Gellman led the Post’s coverage, while Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill led the Guardian’s coverage.

Greenwald became the public face of the reporting, appearing on two Sunday shows last June 9 just hours before the Guardian posted a video interview with Snowden detailing NSA tactics. As an international chase began for Snowden — he eventually made it to Moscow, where he remains — Greenwald kept up his U.S. TV news appearances, often from Rio de Janeiro where he lives, including on “Meet the Press” where journalism itself, became the topic of debate. Greenwald and Poitras returned to the U.S. last Friday, to accept a Polk Award, also for their Snowden reporting.

Lawrence O’Donnell Will Be Off MSNBC for Several Weeks After Car Accident

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 21:36

Lawrence O’Donnell will be off the air for several weeks after being involved in a car accident over the weekend while vacationing.

Here’s MSNBC’s statement:

“Lawrence O’Donnell and his brother Michael were injured in a taxi accident on Saturday while vacationing out of the country. They were transported back to the US – Lawrence to NYC and Michael to Boston. They are both under the care of doctors and expected to make a full recovery. Lawrence will be off from MSNBC for several weeks as he recuperates. Our thoughts and support are with the O’Donnell family and we look forward to having Lawrence back on the air soon.”

No word yet on the extent of the O’Donnell brothers’ injuries, but MSNBC tells us both are in good spirits.

Alex Wagner will fill in on “The Last Word” tonight and tomorrow night, with Ari Melber filling in on Wednesday and Thursday.

Barbara Walters to Don Lemon: CNN Wouldn’t Do Nonstop MH370 Coverage If Not for Ratings

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 21:30

While sitting in as a co-host on “The View” today, CNN’s Don Lemon fielded an onslaught of questions from the chat show’s ladies about his network’s nonstop coverage of missing Malaysia Flight 370.

“You’ve covered this more than any other story that I can remember,” Barbara Walters said. “CNN would not do this if it were not for the ratings.”

“Well, I don’t know if we would do it just for the ratings; we do a lot of things that don’t rate well, but we still do it,” Lemon responded, adding that CNN is giving the audience what it wants.

Co-host Jenny McCarthy asked how Lemon finds the words to continue talking about the missing airliner, day after day. Lemon tipped his hat to a great group of CNN aviation experts. “I rely on them, I don’t pretend that I’m an expert,” he said.

“We [CNN] may not have taken the plane, but we might certainly find it,” Lemon concluded.

Lemon’s colleagues, Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett, and Wolf Blitzer echoed his sentiments while speaking to TVNewser last week. Cooper conceded the network has covered the story a lot, but called it a very “human” story involving “239 souls.” Burnett pointed to security concerns the story raises, while Blitzer raised the still-unknown question of whether criminal activity or mechanical failure was the reason behind the plane’s disappearance.

A Fulltime Job and Twins, CNN’s Kyra Phillips Now Adds a Podcast to Her Routine

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 20:59

Increasingly, TV news anchors and hosts are going extra-curricular as they expand their “brand.” A few years ago, former CBS “Early Show” and local TV anchor Rene Syler launched parenting site Good Enough Mother while still continuing TV appearances. When she left CNN, Soledad O’Brien started her own production company and can now be seen on CNN, Al Jazeera America and other outlets. Then there are the TV news anchors who do double duty on radio, FNC’s Brian Kilmeade among them.

CNN anchor Kyra Phillips is getting into the multi-tasking fray. Phillips and two friends started “The Mom Squad Show,” a 3-times-a-week podcast which, in its first week on iTunes, was downloaded 7,000 times. The podcast is hosted by Phillips in Atlanta, and fellow moms Christine Eads in Washington, DC and Chaz Kelly in Connecticut. Kelly’s husband “Seton” O’Connor is a sidekick on the Dan Patrick show. Eads co-hosts a show on SiriusXM.

Phillips will continue her day job in the CNN Investigative unit, while recording the podcast in her off hours. She’s not allowed to pitch products, or otherwise overstep her CNN contract. Phillips and her husband, Fox News Atlanta-based correspondent John Roberts, are the parents of 3-year-old twins.

“The Mom Squad Show” already has distribution. It went live on iHeardRadio today, and will soon be carried on TuneIn.

All the Media News, That’s Fit To Air

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 20:17

While the three evening newscasts and the network morning shows often look the same — with the same lineup of stories, often airing at the same time — the two media criticism shows, provide two distinct options for news junkies: those who are partial to Fox News and those who tune in to CNN.

Both shows, CNN’s “Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter” and FNC’s “MediaBuzz with Howard Kurtz,” air at the same time, 11amET Sundays. (“MediaBuzz” also gets a re-air at 5pmET)

Yesterday, “Reliable Sources” led with the Stephen Colbert taking over CBS’s “Late Show.” “MediaBuzz” led with how the media covered the departure of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Kurtz got to Colbert :47 minutes into his show. “Reliable Sources” didn’t cover Sebelius at all.

On CNN, Stelter had a 10-minute segment, which included an interview with Sen. Al Franken, on the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. Kurtz didn’t cover last week’s merger news, but had two segments with former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who was also on Bill O’Reilly‘s show earlier in the week.

Stelter reported last week’s news of a new ABC News president, Kurtz did not. Kurtz discussed the coverage of Jeb Bush last week, Stelter did not. Both shows gladly covered competitor MSNBC, and the reports that host Al Sharpton was once an FBI informant.

While no one will ever confuse CNN and Fox News, the two programs that cover the media are leading the way in differentiation.

Scott Pelley Recounts CBS’ Boston Marathon Bombing Reporting

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 19:50

In a “60 Minutes Overtime” piece last night, Scott Pelley recounted 100 hours of CBS News’ reporting after last year’s Boston Marathon bombing story broke.

Pelley and his team were in CBS’ “Fishbowl” room at around 3pmET when then-”CBS Evening News” EP Pat Shevlin had a marathon picture sent to her phone. “In the picture, I saw red,” Pelley said, adding that although it was a lousy picture, it convinced him to go on-air at 3:09pmET.

Pelley explained why he was very careful not to initially use the “B word.” “We don’t know it’s a bomb…we know there are explosions.” He then spoke about the “pandemonium” that ensued when other networks started prematurely reporting arrests had been made.  “People are saying, ‘why aren’t we going on the air?’” Pelley said.

He answered his staff: “We don’t know this…we don’t report other peoples’ reporting, and we don’t have two sources on this, and I’m going to have to have two sources on this.” His restraint proved correct, as CBS never falsely reported arrests had been made like many of their TV News competition.

‘MTP’ Covers Anniversary of Boston Bombings Without Adrianne Haslet-Davis

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 19:25

The “Meet the Press” panel on the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings aired yesterday with former Boston police commissioner Ed Davis, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and several first responders — but no survivor of the attack — after Adrianne Haslet-Davis canceled her scheduled appearance over whether the bombers would be identified by name.

Haslet-Davis, a dancer who lost one foot in the bombings, says she asked the show not to identify the bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, by name. Haslet-Davis left before the panel discussion began taping; an NBC News spokesperson said on Friday that the show couldn’t guarantee that the name wouldn’t be used and the network regretted “any distress caused by this miscommunication.”

As it turns out, Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s name was said during the panel discussion. “MTP” host David Gregory identified him by name while posing a question to Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey about whether red flags were missed. Watch (at about the 17 minute mark):

Haslet-Davis was also profiled for a CNN special that premiered last week. In an appearance on “CBS This Morning” with Anderson Cooper to promote the special, Haslet-Davis discussed why she won’t say Tsarnaev’s name and what she would like to see happen to him: “I think he did a terrible thing and I support them seeking the death penalty for this case.” Watch after the jump. continued…

Savannah Guthrie on Pregnancy: ‘Honestly Didn’t Know If I’d Ever Get This Chance’

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 18:54

“Today” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie is expecting her first child with husband Mike Feldman this summer, and announced today she’ll be delivering updates about her pregnancy through a new blog, ”Savannah’s Maternity Musings.”

“I’m 42 years old, and I honestly didn’t know if I’d ever get this chance,” Guthrie writes in her first blog post. “I’ve never been more thankful, or felt more blessed from above. I know how lucky I am. For a long time, I think I was afraid to even let myself think about how much I hoped to one day have a baby.”

And on “Today,” Guthrie previewed more lighthearted content coming up on the blog, like the joys of pregnancy jeans and her quest to remain in the dark about the sex of her baby.

Robin Roberts on Not Revealing Girlfriend Sooner: ‘Some People Like Their Anonymity’

tvnewser - Lun, 14/04/2014 - 16:32

Robin Roberts tells Good Housekeeping she’s grateful to have the love of girlfriend Amber Laign, but wasn’t in a rush to come out publicly.

“I was so moved that people got it and said, ‘You’re happy,’” Roberts said about the response to her year-end Facebook post that revealed her longtime partner Amber. She also answered those who wondered why she took her time coming out.

Others, though, were asking, “Why didn’t you say something about her before? Why are you only recognizing her now?” News flash: Some people like their anonymity. This is what’s right for me. Love is love, and I’m grateful to have that. Sometimes there’s a stigma attached to how people view you if you’re living a certain way. But I don’t care — you gotta live your life. You gotta find what happiness is and what it means for you, and you can’t get caught up in what someone is saying about you on Twitter. You don’t go through a year like I did to not be happy and not make your own choices.
