MSNBC, CNN, CNN Headline News and Fox News all broke in with news that Jennifer Wilbanks is alive. FNC went back to taped programming about 30 minutes after coming on the air, CNN Headline News is simulcasting CNN, and MSNBC’s Cheryl Cassone is anchoring coverage with analyst Clint Van Zandt.
CNN’s booking department seems to be in its element - blowing away the “guest list” of MSNBC. All I see on FOX right now is an O’Reilly repeat. Always live.
Update:FNC is back live — with live interviews with Greta from the scene.
Update2: Now MSNBC is on tape. Having Greta live at the home is giving them a clear win.
Update3: The picture: John Mason and his mother — with a large Fox News Exlcusive banner below.
Update4: Quote of the night: Greta: “Have we been fair to you John? The Press?” John Mason: “I’m so happy right now, I can’t me mad at anyone. Fair to me? No… probably not. To the situation? Yeah, probably”
Update5: Who is this 10-year-old yutz “anchoring” Fox’s coverage? Keep him off the air. FNC just went back to Bill O’ again.
4:54am: CNN has Jennifer’s father live on the phone. He’s very emotional. Is Fox the only with a sat truck in sight? What IS the deal?
4:55am: Gotta love automation. Comcast in Seattle just abruptly cut to CNN HN “local edition.”
4:59am: Side note: Bill O’Reily just said that Marconi invted the telephone. Umm, that was Bell or Meucci. Marconi may have invented the radio — but even that isn’t proven. Watcha thinkin’ Bill?
5:00am: A new hour dawns — FNC & MSNBC are running Your World & H&L… CNN is live. Well, as live as a stillstore and some phoners can be.
