The Morning Ticker: Sharpton, Ramos, Rascon

  • MSNBC host Al Sharpton put himself at the center of the news this weekend. Following the choke-hold death of suspect Eric Garner while in NYPD custody last week, Sharpton led a march and press appearances with the victim’s family, calling for change in police tactics.

  • Fusion’s Jorge Ramos will anchor “America” from the U.S.-Mexican border tomorrow. Ramos will report on the journey thousands of unaccompanied children are taking as they flee the increasing violence and economic hardship in their home countries.

  • KNBC reporter Jacob Rascon is on temporary duty for NBC News’ Los Angeles bureau for the rest of the summer. Rascon, the son of former CBS News correspondent Art Rascon, joined KNBC in 2012. His first story for NBC News is the Washington wildfires.

May 2014 Ratings: MSNBC Reclaims #2

With the search for Malaysian Air Flight 370 dying down, MSNBC reclaimed the outright second-place spot on the cable news leaderboard in May, besting CNN in both total day and primetime. But the network hit a series of seven-year lows in both total day and primetime this month.

The ratings for May 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 536,000 Total Viewers / 153,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 327,000 Total Viewers / 103,000 A25-54

Like its competitors, MSNBC was down compared to May 2013: the network was down -5% in total viewers and -10% in the A25-54 demographic in total day and -1% and -13%, respectively, in primetime. MSNBC was down the least of all the cable news networks for the month.

In total day, MNSBC delivered its lowest ratings in total viewers since December 2007 and in the A25-54 demo since June 2006. In primetime, the network had its lowest demo delivery since July 2006.

In primetime, “All In with Chris Hayes” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” were both up in total viewers but down in the demo compared to the same month last year: Hayes’ program was up +6% in total viewers and down -13% in the demo and Maddow’s program was up +3% and down -16%, respectively. “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” was down -16% in total viewers and-12% in the A25-54 demo.

It was also a mixed bag for MSNBC’s early evening programming. “The Ed Show” and “Politics Nation” were both down in total viewers but up in the demo. They were the only two cable news shows to grow in the 5pmET and 6pmET timeslots. At 7pmET, “Hardball with Chris Matthews” was up in total viewers but down in the demo.

“Morning Joe” reclaimed the second-place spot among the cable news morning shows for the month, growing +13% in total viewers and +39% in the demo compared to May 2013.

Behind the Scenes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

For the White House Correspondents’ Association, it’s a night to celebrate the free press. For Joel McHale, it’s a night where “a guy like me can stand before the president, the press and Patrick Duffy, and tell jokes without severe repercussions.” And for TVNewser, it’s a night where the people we cover all year — executives, producers, reporters and anchors from every major network — are all together in the same room: the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which we attended this year as a guest of ABC News.

Our night began outside the entrance to the ballroom at the Washington Hilton, where we overheard now-NBC News correspdonent Cynthia McFadden ask for directions to the ABC News party. We followed her in, and a few minutes later we were chatting with Diane Sawyer, who told us she always looks forward to the Correspondents’ Dinner, and James Goldston, who said he was pleased with his first few weeks as ABC News president. In the back of the room, Fox News anchors Ainsley Earhardt and Kimberly Guilfoyle posed for a picture with Sofia Vergara; Earhardt told us afterwards that she’s “having a blast” anchoring “Fox & Friends First,” despite the crazy hours. We spotted Katie Couric chatting with former Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his daughter, Abby Huntsman, who is a co-host of MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”

Wolf Blitzer made the rounds with Diane Lane. We saw NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and ABC’s Lara Spencer snap a picture with Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal.” We spent a few minutes with Rebecca Jarvis, and chatted with Alicia Menendez about her participation in the TVNewser Show as well as her Twitter habit.

On the way into the ballroom, we spotted Guthrie and her husband, Mike Feldman, chatting with Bret Baier and his wife Amy. We saw Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, chatting with fans. Simpson’s ex, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, was also at the WHCD as a guest of Fox News. Read more

Joe Klein is Turning to Fox News Because CNN Has ‘Gone in the Toilet’

As Time Inc. prepares to spin off from Time Warner, TIME columnist Joe Klein says he can now speak candidly about soon-to-be former corporate sibling CNN.

“It is such an embarrassment to our profession that CNN has gone in the toilet the way it has,” Klein told PBS’ Jeff Greenfield last night at New York City’s 92nd Street Y. Klein recounted coming home, turning on CNN at 6pm to watch Wolf Blitzer, only to be disappointed with nonstop missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 coverage.

“I miss being able to watch a straight newscast, and it turns out the only place you can go to get one at 6 o’clock at night is Fox,” Klein said, adding that the other option is to turn on MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, who he “still considers to be a major criminal.”

Megyn Kelly Bets David Gregory Isn’t The Only One Being Analyzed

KellyOn last night’s “The Kelly File,” Megyn Kelly took on NBC News reportedly hiring a psychologist for “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory, suggesting Gregory isn’t the only one being analyzed.

“I’m going to bet there are psychiatrists analyzing us on their couches right now, but I’m going to tell you right now, they weren’t hired by Roger Ailes,” Kelly joked, adding that they’re actually Fox watchers concluding “it was all her mother’s fault.”

NBC News told Fox News the same thing they told us yesterday; they hired a brand consultant, not a psychologist, to speak with Gregory, his family, and friends.

And Sean Hannity “has had enough with NBC News,” offering harsher criticism last night for MSNBC’s “left-wing loudmouth” Ed Schultz.

Hannity aired clips of Schultz criticizing Hannity’s coverage of the Bundy-ranch standoff with federal rangers, which Schultz said he should be ashamed of. “Are they going to send 200 armed agents to everybody’s house?” Hannity asked about the federal government’s actions.

He concluded the segment airing a montage of the “buffoon” Schultz, airing some of Schultz’s more over-the-top statements about Vice President Dick Cheney and Laura Ingraham (which Schultz was suspended for). He also took on “mob rat” Al Sharpton.
