Highlights from the 11.2.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyUS Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer:

…there really are positive signs in all three countries. In Liberia, thanks to the presence of the CDC and the US military, we see the rate of safe burial, which is a key part of the solution here, skyrocketing to close to 90% in the capital Monrovia. In Sierra Leone, the rate of safe burial within 24 hours is close to 100%. And CDC thinks that around half to 70% of the infections may well come from unsafe burial. So you could imagine what a difference that could start to make here you know just in a matter of days or weeks. And the rate of improvement in safe burial came over a four or five day period just because of the injection of command and control, frankly, by the United States and by the British and the Sierra Leonean context.

Jon Stewart Confirms NBC News Pursued Him as ‘Meet the Press’ Replacement

john_stewart(6)In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart confirmed that NBC News approached him to replace David Gregory as moderator of “Meet the Press.”

It was first reported earlier this month by New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman that NBC News’ president Deborah Turness pursued Stewart in the network’s efforts to boost the show’s ratings. Sherman cited three unnamed senior television sources, with one saying that NBC was “ready to back the Brink’s truck up.”

Stewart confirmed the offer during a recent interview with Andy Greene, who writes:

In an new interview with Rolling Stone, Stewart confirms that there were indeed discussions. “My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” he says. “I’m sure part of them was thinking, ‘Why don’t we just make it a variety show?’” Read more

Highlights from the 10.26.14 Sunday Shows

SundayShows-w-candyDr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with guest host Charlie Rose:

“Well, first of all, the most important thing, to protect the American people.  And as you said, you’ve got to base your decision and your policy on scientific evidence and scientific principles. Talking about health care workers coming back, they are at different levels of risk depending on their experience.”

“And you tailor the kinds of monitoring, passively, actively, direct, according to that kind of risk. The idea of a blanket quarantine for people who come back could possibly have a negative consequence of essentially disincentivizing people from wanting to go there. And the reason that’s important, Charlie, is because the best way to protect Americans is to stop the epidemic in Africa. And we need those health care workers to do that. So to put them in a position when they come back that no matter what, automatically they’re under quarantine can actually have unintended consequences. And that’s the reason why we’re concerned about that.”
