PBS Sets ‘NewsHour’ Election Plans

PBS “NewsHour” has announced its coverage plans for the 2010 midterm elections. Jim Lehrer will anchor a special election night broadcast from 11 PM to midnight, with Judy Woodruff, Gwen Ifill and David Chalian joining analysts Mark Shields, David Brooks and Stuart Rothenberg.

Correspondents in the studio and field will include Hari Sreenivasan, Jeff Brown, Margaret Warner, Ray Suarez, Spencer Micheals and Kwame Holman.

Because PBS does not have the time that the cable news channels have to dedicate to election coverage, “NewsHour” will also have a one-hour webcast preceding the broadcast, which Lehrer will also anchor.

More information in the press release after the jump.

Joe Kernen: “How Can Fox News Double MSNBC and CNN Combined? Air America Can’t Sell An Ad”

This morning on Squawk Box, Joe Kernen played contrarian to the New York Times’ David Brooks. Brooks’ column today, titled “The Wizard of Beck,” is “the story of media mavens who claim to represent a hidden majority but who in fact represent a mere niche – even in the Republican Party.” Brooks writes:

Just months after the election and the humiliation, everyone is again convinced that Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity and the rest possess real power. And the saddest thing is that even Republican politicians come to believe it. They mistake media for reality. They pre-emptively surrender to armies that don’t exist.

CNBC’s Kernen doesn’t see it that way: “David Brooks is a conservative? You tell Rush that his $100M a year, or whatever he makes, isn’t real.”

MSNBC’s Inaugurappuccino and “Moon Landing”

msnbclogo_1-14.gifIf you’re not interested in watching MSNBC on TV, or at the movies, you have another option as well — Starbucks.

The New York Times’ Brian Stelter writes about the Starbucks simulcasts, which “will be open to the public at locations in New York, San Francisco and Seattle,” in 650 of the company’s stores (release after the jump).

starbucks_1-14.jpgAbout the move, James Poniewozik, Time Magazine’s “Tuned In” columnist, writes today, “Seriously: did David Brooks think up that promotion?”

He also describes the “moon landing”-type promos MSNBC is running about the Inauguration. A sample: “When a new President inspires the nation, one day Americans will ask: where were you when Barack Obama became President?”

“As an Obama voter, I’m personally as delighted as anyone with what will be happening on stage Jan. 20,” he writes. “But I’d hope a news organization would make some effort to acknowledge that not everyone else is. Nor do they have to be.”

Election Night: PBS & BBC

The big four broadcasters and cable news networks will keep us waiting a bit longer before they reveal what’s in store on election night. As one insider told TVNewser last week, “you think we want to give our play book to the other guys?” “No,” was our answer.

Anyway, we do have the plans for PBS and BBC.

Jim Lehrer anchors PBS’ election coverage with political analysis from Mark Shields & David Brooks. Senior Correspondents Gwen Ifill, Judy Woodruff, Ray Suarez, Jeffrey Brown, and Margaret Warner contribute. Coverage begins at 9pmET and will continue until midnight or until a winner is announced.

• BBC has tapped British-born but red-blooded American Ted Koppel to join them on the set of the Washington Bureau. Coverage begins at 6pmET and will be anchored by David Dimbleby along with Matt Frei, anchor of BBC World News America.

The press releases are after the jump…
