TV’s Most Powerful

Some interesting local tidbits in the annual “TV News’ 10 Most Powerful“:

  • On Fox…”However, FNC has been oddly low-profile and sotto voce in the most portentous political year in memory despite the presence of Karl Rove in Fox News’ pundit pack.”

  • On ABC’s David Westin: “Westin has become an adroit player/booker and the growth of ‘This Week With George Stephanopoulos‘ into a consistent silver medalist in the Sunday newsmaker show competition lends ABC News a comforting air of tradition even as it digs for the pot of gold at the end of the digital rainbow that teases all news organizations.”

  • On NBC’s Tim Russert: “Mr. Russert’s loyalty to people used to making familiar points in a familiar way can sometimes make his roundtables seem fusty, especially in a presidential campaign year like this when a woman and an African American man have changed the political landscape and the race and gender conversations forever.”

  • On CNN: “The addiction to politics of Senior VP and Washington Bureau Chief David Bohrman and political director Sam Feist is the wind beneath CNN’s politically corrected ratings wings these days.”
