Pope: Where Are Jennings & Schieffer?

On NBC, Brian Williams has been anchoring the special report on the Pope’s death. But on ABC and CBS, their big-name anchors were M.I.A. when the news broke. Instead of Peter Jennings, Bob Woodruff handled the coverage on ABC. Rather than Bob Schieffer, Thalia Assuras anchored the report on CBS. (Schieffer must be in D.C. for Face the Nation…)

> Update: 4:10pm: “Peter hasn’t been feeling well,” an ABC News insider tells TVNewser. “He was here on stand-by all yesterday and he anchored World News Tonight last night. He has decided to take the time to feel better because there will be many more days of coverage in the weeks ahead.”
