There were a handful of segments that stood out to me from today’s cable news coverage of the shooting in New York. While every network eventually had a correspondent or producer on the scene, Fox News managed to get ahead of the curve, due to random chance.
Jaquee Boothby, a booker for FNC, happened to be walking in the area, and called into the programming to report what she saw.
CNN had one of the more interesting accounts from a witness:
MSNBC showcased some of NBC News’ breaking news chops, featuring anchor Lester Holt reporting from the scene:
- Cable News Covers Wayward Plane with 'Unconscious and Slumped Over' Pilot
