Grand Jury Decision Leads to Night of Violence in Ferguson

Obama Ferguson PoliceAs Pres. Obama called for calm, angry protestors tried to flip a police cruiser in Ferguson, MO.

The president delivered a brief statement from the press briefing room tonight following the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s announcement that police officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

“There is inevitably going to be some negative reaction and it will make for good TV,” said the president as cable news double boxes showed the damage already being done. “But what we want to do is to make sure that we’re also focusing on those who can offer the kind of real progress that we know is possible.”

“You have a small number of knuckle heads causing the problems,” CNN’s Van Jones explained, just before he and CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon were overcome by tear gas fumes.

Cruiser FergusonIn his remarks about the grand jury’s decision, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said the media hasn’t helped the situation. “The most significant challenge encountered in this investigation has been the 24-hour news cycle and its insatiable appetite for something, for anything to talk about. Following closely behind were the nonstop rumors on social media,” said McCulloch.

Less than an hour after the president’s remarks, that police cruiser was on fire. Police told CNN correspondent Jason Carroll and his crew to leave the scene as live rounds in the cruiser started going off.

Update: 10:57pmET: FNC correspondent Steve Harrigan‘s camera was knocked to the ground.

Update: 11:29pmET: A protestor approached the live position of Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo and shouted “Fuck CNN.” “As we said at the top of this broadcast, we don’t know what’s going to happen. So we apologize for that,” Lemon said.

Update: 11:34pmET: MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and his guest Pastor Michael McBride leave their location as the sounds of gunfire are heard nearby. “That’s gunfire…. Alright…. We’re being told to fall back.”

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Defends Interview With KKK ‘Imperial Wizard’ on Ferguson

KKK

You very rarely see cable news networks devote time to interviews with Klansmen. But on MSNBC’s “All In” Wednesday evening, Chris Hayes interviewed Frank Ancona, a self-described “Imperial Wizard” from the “Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK”. In a segment labeled “Prepared for War”, Hayes questioned Ancona about flyers his group is distributing around the St. Louis area that warn protesters in Ferguson have “awakened a sleeping giant.” Hayes tells TVNewser he feels very strongly that doing the interview was “the right call,” though he understands many of his biggest fans disagree. “We debated and wrestled with whether or not to do it and weighed the pros and cons and ultimately decided there was real news/journalistic value in putting him on,” he told us.

Ancona claimed his group has received “hundreds of calls” from residents around St. Louis concerned about “random attacks on whites” and “police officers being threatened that their wives are going to be raped.” It was decidedly uncomfortable to watch, and some viewers were disgusted–not just with Ancona’s words, but Hayes’ decision to give the Klan air time. Even St. Louis Police chief Sam Dotson said “I think the first guest didn’t help the conversation and the dialogue at all.”

October 2014 Ratings: CNN Finishes Second

CNN ranked #2 in primetime and total day for the A25-54 demo in October 2014, edging out MSNBC. For the fourth consecutive month, CNN was second in total viewers and the A25-54 demo, in total day. The last time that happened was six years ago during the 2008 elections. That said, CNN came in third in primetime total viewers, trailing MSNBC by 27K viewers.

The ratings for October 2014:

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 475K Total Viewers / 184K A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 418K Total Viewers / 134K A25-54

Like MSNBC and Fox News, CNN was down compared to October, 2013: down -5% in viewers and down -1% in the demo for total day. In primetime, the net was down -18% in viewers and down -3% in the demo. “AC 360″ topped MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes in both total viewers and the demo.

“New Day” out-rated MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in both total viewers and the demo. This marks the fourth consecutive month (and six of the past eight months) that “New Day” has topped “Morning Joe” in the demo.
