Exclusives That Aren’t: Ashoka Mukpo Speaks With CNN, After Speaking With NBC

AshokaCNNCNN billed its interview with Ebola survivor Ashoka Mukpo today as an exclusive. But it’s not. Mukpo gave his first interview to NBC’s Kate Snow last week just after being released from the hospital. That’s not surprising since Mukpo, a freelance cameraman, was working for NBC in Libera when he was diagnosed with Ebola earlier this month. Don Lemon‘s interview with Mukpo airs on “CNN Tonight.”

Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes Honored by Green Beret Foundation

KEANE_AILESThe Green Beret Foundation honored Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes and Beth Ailes, Publisher of the Putnam County News & Recorder and Putnam County Courier with the Lifetime Achievement Award for their personal support of the nation’s military and Green Berets. Army Gen. Jack Keane (left) presented the Aileses with their awards.

“Behind every successful man is a surprised wife,” Ailes joked as he began his remarks.

Last night’s event at the Pierre Hotel was emceed by FNC anchor Bill Hemmer. Various FoxNewsers were there including Shepard Smith, Bret Baier, Harris Faulkner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Steve Doocy, Janice Dean. Megyn Kelly dropped by for the cocktail hour, so she could be back for “The Kelly File.”

“When President Kennedy helped form the Green Berets he knew that some day they’d be needed,” Ailes went on to say. “The values and principles that lead you to go in harm’s way willingly are unique American traits. The people in this room — particularly the Green Berets — have my greatest respect because they are prepared to risk everything for an idea, and that idea is called America.”

Elaine Howard, CEO of Gannett Government Media and Lieutenant General John Mulholland, Jr, former Deputy Commander of the Special Operations Command, were also honored.

‘Smells Good…Smells Like College’: Rachel Maddow Tours Colorado Pot Shop

The owner of a marijuana dispensary in Colorado, Jamie Perino, gave a tour of the very legal business to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who was in the state to report on the weird world of the state’s blooming marijuana industry.

Maddow’s first thought on heading inside the pot shop? “Smells good. Smells like college.” After getting her ID checked, the man at the door gave Maddow the quick run-down on how it all works: “It’s kind of like ordering sushi.”

Royals to Win World Series, According to The Weather Channel

GoodloeGame 7 of the World Series is tonight and if baseball fans want to know the outcome, they should probably tune in to The Weather Channel. Meteorologist Paul Goodloe is two-for-two predicting World Series games based on one key factor… wind.

Prior to Game 1, Goodloe mentioned the wind coming from the east at Kauffman Stadium, which would give right-handed hitters an advantage at the plate. He predicted both Giants OF Hunter Pence and Royals catcher Salvador Perez would hit home runs. They both did. He also correctly predicted a Giants’ victory.

Before Game 6, Goodloe predicted Royals 3B Mike Moustakas would homer to right field due to Northwest winds, which statistically favor left-hand players in Kauffman Stadium. He also highlighted Royals 1B Eric Hosmer as a potential key player in the game and said the Royals “should win.” Well, Moustakas hit a home run and Hosmer went 2-5 with two RBIs in the Royals’ 10-0 victory.

So what will happen tonight? Read more

Lester Holt Thanks Jimmy Fallon For ‘Dateline’ Shout Outs

HoltLetter304“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” has made a habit of mentioning fellow-NBC show “Dateline” whenever possible.

Sharyl Attkisson: ‘I Don’t Trust Them, I Don’t Respect Them, I Can’t Work for Them’

AttkissonWaPo’s Erik Wemple continues poring over former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson‘s new book, Stonewalled and comes across an episode that is at the heart of her story. As we’ve reported here, Attkisson has said time and again that “CBS Evening News” producers went out of their way to keep her stories from making air. Or when they did air, either “heavy-handed editing” stripped away much of her reporting or politics got in the way.

This came to a head during CBS’s reporting in the weeks after the attack in Benghazi, just as the 2012 election was heating up. Attkisson writes:

So for the second time in five days, New York has us insert the same line and Obama sound bite in an Evening News story to imply that the president had called Benghazi a terrorist attack the next day. It seems as though they’re putting a lot of effort into trying to defend the president on this point.

Attkisson says she then went straight to the top: Read more

The Ticker: WiCi, Over-Under, Devour!

Morning in Prime: Norah O’Donnell on ‘Blue Bloods;’ Al Roker Cut From ‘Mysteries’

RokerLauraIt’s corporate synergy at its finest, and just in time for November Sweeps.

Norah O’Donnell of “CBS This Morning” makes a cameo on an upcoming episode of CBS’ “Blue Bloods.” The result was some nice cross promotion, as “CTM” shot a segment about the scene which was filmed at Studio 57. That episode airs next Friday.

NBC had a similar approach when the “Today” show’s Al Roker filmed a scene for an upcoming episode of “The Mysteries of Laura.” Unfortunately for Roker fans, the scene was left on the cutting room floor. “You were cut?,” Willie Geist asked this morning. “I was cut,” Roker confirmed, “My cameo never made it into the show.”

Check out both scenes, after the jump… Read more
