FOX Sweeps DC Market Sunday Show Ratings for 7.27.14

According to Nielsen Media Research in the DC market on Sunday, July 27th, “FOX News Sunday” moderated by Chris Wallace was the most-watched Sunday show in the DC market in households, total viewers and the A25-54 demo.

FOX posted its second highest total viewership ever in the market with 107,000 total viewers (the highest was Feb. 7, 2010 when Wallace interviewed Sarah Palin with 132,000 in P2+). July 27 was also the first time FOX bested NBC in 7 years, and second time ever. The ratings come days after reports that David Gregory‘s time as “Meet the Press” host is coming to an end.

In the key A25-54 demo, FOX led with 41,000 viewers in the DC market, followed by ABC’s “This Week” with 36,000 and NBC’s “Meet the Press” with 33,000. In total households following FOX at 64,000 was NBC with 53,000 and CBS with 36,000.

This past Sunday, both FOX and NBC had interviews with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. ABC hosted Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX). Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright joined CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Henry Cisneros, former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, was on “Al Punto.” Highlight’s from the day’s programing here.

The Hill’s Bob Cusack Named Editor in Chief

The Hill today announced that Bob Cusack has been named editor in chief. He’s served as managing editor of the paper since 2004.

Cusack’s promotion came with several other announcements, including the departure of Hugo Gurdon who’s heading to The Examiner. Hill news editor Ian Swanson will replace Cusack as managing editor, and business and lobbying editor Dustin Weaver will fill Swanson’s role. POLITICO’s Scott Wong will now serve as a senior staff writer for The Hill. 

TheHillTweet

At 9:04 am, The Hill tweeted the announcement (to the right), and funny enough, misspelled his name (thank you Fishbowl reader for the screen grab!).

The tweet has since been deleted and a new tweet issued, spelling corrected (below).

National Journal ‘Women in Washington’ Issue Leads with Piece by NPR’s Michel Martin

NJCover07_26_14Friday we gave you the Magazine Cover of the Week, a look at NBC4′s Jim Vance and Doreen Gentzler 25 year run as evening news anchors in the Washington Post Magazine, and we’re back to highlight National Journal’s “Women in Washington” issue.

In it, NPR’s Michel Martin penned the piece “What I’ve Left Unsaid: On Balancing Career and Family as a Woman of Color.”

On how the media portrays women of color, the NPR host of “Tell Me More” – set to fold August 1 – said, “It isn’t just the entertainment industry that does a poor job of depicting women of color and their full range of experiences; journalists should take some responsibility for this as well. One former TV boss of mine used to talk about getting a ‘white guy in a suit.’ The thinking was, if you wanted to show that whatever you were reporting on was a universal issue, you needed to go find a ‘white guy in a suit,’ either as the subject of the story or even to tell the story.”

The July 26 issue also features ”Go Ahead, Ruffle Some Feathers“ by former DC public school chancellor Michelle Rhee, ”Working Mother, Washington Powerhouse? Good Luck“ by Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, and ”How I Learned to Love My Firstness“ by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Check it out, here, or on newsstands now.

Highlights from 7.27.14 Sunday Shows

Hillary Clinton on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” answering what Vladimir Putin is ‘like as a man’ : “Well, he’s very tough. He’s a very arrogant person to deal with, which I think is a combination of this vision of Russia and some fundamental insecurity because when you are dealing with him, he often acts as though he couldn’t care less, he’s not interested, even talking with him about getting Russia into the World Trade Organization which is something the Obama administration was determined to do because we want to have a rules based order in so far as possible.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on President Putin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “I think that Putin is living in his own world.  He has made up an awful lot of lies in terms of who is responsible for the fact that the Soviet Union disintegrated. He actually called that the greatest disaster of the 2oth century. Hard to believe, when there were two world wars that killed millions of people; among them, Russians. So that’s the first lie. And then he has, in fact, propagandized all that to his own country, and then into central and Eastern Europe. I think what he wants to do is to reestablish himself as the identification of Russian nationalism. And then also to do everything he can to kind of reestablish something akin to the Soviet Union, obviously not that, but a grouping of countries around Russia that are completely subservient to him and to Moscow. And until he can get that, he’s going to work to destabilize Eastern Europe.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : If you had 2,500 rockets falling on your cities, if you had terror tunnels dug underneath your border to reach your kindergarten, if you had attacks by land, by sea, and by air, of course  take action. You take action, you take military action aplenty. I have no doubt that you would. So does Israel.” Read more

Sarah Palin Launches Channel to Explore ‘Important issues facing the nation’

Sarah Palin over the weekend announced a new project she’s launching – “The Sarah Palin Channel” – to explore “important issues facing the nation,” part of the TAPP network.

“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” she explains in a video promo for the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Most of the channel is members only, at the rate of $9.95 a month or $99.95 for a year. In the site’s FAQ’s under ‘Is the Channel members only?’ it answers: “Yes, we have launched our video channel looking for the support of our community through subscriptions. We also feel that the community would feel more secure knowing everyone watching, uploading videos, and participating in the discussions and video chats was a contributing member and not anonymous,” aka it’s viewer funded but we’ll act like having people pay $10 a month via credit card actually makes it “feel more secure.”
