Broadcast and Cable Networks Dispatch Correspondents to Ukraine

Ukraine CBS CoverageAs tensions escalate in Ukraine, cable and broadcast networks are ramping up their presence in the region.

Each of the broadcast networks have correspondents in Ukraine: Bill Neely is in Simferopol for NBC News, Alex Marquardt is in Crimea for ABC News and Elizabeth Palmer is in Sevastopol for CBS News. Charlie D’Agata and Clarissa Ward are also reporting from Kiev for CBS.

As for the cable networks: Anderson Cooper is headed to the region for CNN to anchor “AC360″ tonight. Fox News correspondent Amy Kellogg is live from Kiev today, and MSNBC has been using NBC’s Neely for live shots from the region. Nick Schifrin and Jennifer Glasse are on the ground in Simferopol for Al Jazeera America, and Phil Ittner is reporting from Kiev for the network.

Ukraine received extensive coverage on the Sunday public affairs shows yesterday, with Secretary of State John Kerry appearing on all the broadcast shows — except one. “For the record, we invited Secretary of State John Kerry to join us today,” Chris Wallace said on “Fox News Sunday.” “But although the White House put him out on all the other broadcast Sunday shows, they declined to make him available to us or you.”

>Update: Shepard Smith is also traveling to Ukraine for Fox News. He will anchor “Shepard Smith Reporting” and report for the network’s daytime and primetime shows from Kiev.

Chris Wallace Chides White House After Susan Rice Goes ‘On Only One Show’

RiceMTPFox News Channel’s Chris Wallace called out the White House this morning over David Gregory‘s exclusive interview with National Security Advisor Susan Rice on “Meet the Press.” This was Rice’s first appearance on one of the Sunday public affairs shows since being named the president’s National Security Advisor.

“I wanted to ask the Obama Administration about the crisis in Ukraine, but they decided to put National Security Advisor Susan Rice on only one show today in her first Sunday appearance since 2012 when she blamed the Benghazi terror attack on reaction to an anti-Islam video,” Wallace said. “Of course FOX has led the way in questioning how the administration handled Benghazi.  Perhaps Susan Rice didn’t want to answer the tough questions we would have asked.”

For his part, Gregory did ask Rice about those Sunday show appearances back in September of 2012. “When you were last here, Ambassador Rice, it was an eventful morning on the story of Benghazi and the horrible attack on our compound there,” said Gregory. “We haven’t seen you in a while. As you look back at your involvement in all of that, do you have any regrets?”

Romney Addresses Melissa Harris-Perry Comments: ‘People Make Mistakes’

romney fox news sundayMitt Romney has accepted an apology from MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry after she and several guests mocked a Romney family photo that included his adopted black grandson, the former Presidential candidate said on “Fox News Sunday” this morning.

“I recognize that people make mistakes, and the folks at MSNBC made a big mistake. They’ve apologized for it, and that’s all you can ask for. I’m going to move on from that, I’m sure they want to move on from it,” Romney said. “I’ve made plenty of mistakes myself, and they’ve apologized for this, and we can go on from there.”

When Chris Wallace pressed for further reaction, Romney said, “People like me are fair targets. If you get in the political game, you can expect incoming. But children, that’s beyond the line. And I think they understand that and feel that as well. I think it’s a heartfelt apology and I think for that reason we hold no ill-will whatsoever.”

Romney’s comments come on the heels of an on-air apology by Harris-Perry, who teared up while addressing the comments on her show yesterday. “My intention was not malicious, but I broke the ground rule that families are off-limits, and for that I am sorry,” she said.

The Ticker: Claman, Best Dressed, Romney

Chris Wallace Marks Ten Years as Host of ‘Fox News Sunday’

Chris-Wallace2Chris Wallace celebrates his tenth anniversary as host of “Fox News Sunday” this weekend. “If you look at our interviews, I think they tend to be tougher, more informative, more interesting and produce more news,” he tells the AP’s David Bauder. “I like where we stand.” Wallace also says he’s not planning on making any career moves soon:

Wallace, 66, who covered the White House for NBC News during the Ronald Reagan administration and also moderated ‘‘Meet the Press,’’ said ‘‘there is a special joy in having the best job of your career in the home stretch of your career.’’

For the Wallace family, ‘‘home stretch’’ is a relative term. His dad, Mike, who died last year at 93, worked at ‘‘60 Minutes’’ until he was almost 90. ‘‘When I was hired by Roger [Ailes] 10 years ago, I said, ‘Looking at my father’s career, I can only give you 30 years,’’’ he said. ‘‘So it’s 10 down, 20 to go.’’

Sarah Palin Accepts Martin Bashir’s Apology, Hits MSNBC ‘Hypocrisy’

sarah palin_304x200Sarah Palin accepted MSNBC’s Martin Bashir’s apology during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” suggesting everyone must be humble enough to accept an apology, but she did have pointed words for the “media elite bubble.”

“Who am I to not accept an apology?” Palin said. “Everyone must humble themselves and accept that offer of apology,” she continued, warning that next time a media personality wants to say something vile about her and then call her to apologize privately, she’d like them to go through her husband or children first and “then they can come to me.”

Chris Wallace asked Palin for her thoughts on MSNBC suspending Alec Baldwin, but not Bashir: “That’s the executive hypocrisy that is so prevalent in that media elite bubble,” Palin said. “It depends on the target of the vile rants, it doesn’t depend on what the rant itself actually is.”
