Networks Pivot From Ukraine to Gaza as Israel Launches Ground Offensive

Shortly before 4pmET, cable and broadcast networks turned from Ukraine — where they have spent most of the day reporting on Malyasia Airlines flight 17, which was shot down near the Russian border this morning — to Gaza, where Israel has just launched a ground offensive after several days of violence there.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was the only broadcast anchor still on the air when news of the ground invasion broke. “We’re just getting reports now from our Hamish MacDonald that Israeli military confirms to ABC news that the ground phase of the war in Gaza has indeed begun,” Stephanopoulos said. “Another huge crisis escalating at the same time as we’re getting all of these reports of the downed airliner.”

On cable, Shepard Smith continues to anchor from the Fox News Deck, joined by John Huddy from Gaza. Jake Tapper is anchoring on CNN, joined by Wolf Blitzer in Jerusalem. CNN’s Ben Wedeman and Karl Penhaul also reported from Gaza during the 4pmET hour. Alex Wagner is anchoring on MSNBC.

MSNBC and CNN have mostly focused on the plane during the 4pmET hour, while Fox News has stayed with the Gaza story.

>Update: As an out of breath John Huddy voiced a running eyewitness account on Fox News, describing what he sees and hears, Smith said, “John Huddy is giving us a view like you won’t see on any channel in this world. I’m watching all of them. And nobody has this view, and nobody has this eye on this, except John Huddy.” Watch here.

The NBC Ticker: Jansing, Vieira, Wagner

  • FishbowlDC reports on Chris Jansing‘s first day as NBC’s new Senior White House Correspondent. Jansing covered the Summit on Working Families. The former MSNBC anchor’s DC start comes on Josh Earnest‘s first day as White House Press Secretary.

  • This Friday, NBC’s Meredith Vieira hosts the 2-hour primetime special “A Leap of Faith,” which takes viewers inside an emerging medical break-through that is both experimental and controversial — but has the potential to save billions of lives.

  • “NOW with Alex Wagner” on MSNBC is airing special reports this week on immigration in the U.S. For the series called  “The Invisible Us” Wagner reports from the U.S./Mexico border.

Lawrence O’Donnell on Crash Recovery: ‘It’s Been a Real Clearing of the Head’

ODonnellWagnerMSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell went on Alex Wagner‘s show this afternoon to talk about his recovery from a taxi crash while on vacation in April.

“It’s been two months, there’s been some difficult parts of it. But the truth of it is, it’s been a pretty great two months,” O’Donnell said. “I am not a workaholic. I am not the first one in the building in the morning. It’s been a real clearing of the head,” O’Donnell told Wagner.

Still no word on when he’ll be back hosting his 10pmET show. Wagner closed by saying, “We look forward to seeing you in the very near future.”

MSNBC Forgets the Bleep Button, Again

Toure“The Cycle” didn’t end on a high note this afternoon when MSNBC forgot its bleep button during a segment on marijuana.

“Calm down motherf*ckers, you win by default,” comedian Dave Chappelle said during a clip Touré tossed to during his monologue about New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd‘s recent marijuana column (she wrote about her experience eating a caramel-chocolate bar with a few extra ingredients).

“The Cycle” co-host claimed Dowd’s column put “too much fear in the body politic,” adding she simply ignored her “weed tour guide” on how much was acceptable to consume.

Coming out of Chappelle’s F-bomb clip, Touré quickly wrapped and tossed to “Now with Alex Wagner.”

This isn’t the first time this has happened. Remember this?

>>Update: On her show, Alex Wagner apologized for the mistake: “In the previous hour MSNBC aired a piece of tape with offensive language. The network obviously did not intend for that language to air and MSNBC apologizes to our viewers.”
