ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX aired special reports this morning as Pres. Obama announced he would accept the Nobel Peace Prize. “I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments,” Obama said from the Rose Garden, “but rather as an affirmation of America’s leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.” [The screengrab from NBC is from Washington station WRC which was in a local news broadcast at the time.]

CNN, FNC, MSNBC, CNBC and FBN also carried Obama’s remarks.

Related: Time‘s Jim Poniewozik on some of this morning‘s cable news coverage: “…at 9:39, Fox anchor Megyn Kelly mentioned the prize award for (I timed it with a stopwatch) 11.1 seconds. After which Bill Hemmer segued: ‘Hey, meet the guys who built a pumpkin cannon!’ To be fair, it was a really awesome pumpkin cannon.”

Only, it wasn’t Megyn Kelly who said that… she’s on maternity leave… it was fill-in anchor Juliet Huddy.
