Early Morning Cable Coverage of Beatification of Pope John Paul II

As many of the newsers attending this year’s White House correspondents dinner — and after parties — were calling it a night, in Rome, the cable news networks were just getting going, covering the Mass for the beatification of Pope John Paul II. Chris Jansing (left, with analysts George Weigel and Fr. Robert Barron), who’d anchored coverage of the Royal Wedding Friday and flew to Rome yesterday, began MSNBC’s coverage just before 4amET. On Fox News, Jamie Colby and Eric Shawn anchored from New York beginning at 4am, with religion correspondent Lauren Green and Fr. Jonathan Morris in Rome. CNN/U.S. and CNNI simulcast the Mass with Jon Mann anchoring in Atlanta and correspondent Jim Bitterman and Vatican analyst and author John Allen in Rome.
