George Zimmerman Trial: MSNBC Plans ‘in-depth, continuing coverage’

The George Zimmerman trial starts on Monday, and the cable news channels are gearing up for live coverage on the proceedings.

Most interesting is MSNBC, which is planning “in-depth, continuing coverage” as part of its regular programming.

“MSNBC will provide in-depth, continuing coverage of the trial of George Zimmerman beginning Monday, June 10,” an MSNBC spokesperson says. “The network will cover the criminal proceedings live as news warrants during our regularly scheduled programs.”

MSNBC president Phil Griffin said recently that his channel is “not the place” for breaking news, but rather is doubling down on politics. The Zimmerman trial is breaking news, though it has energized politicians and political pundits in a way that no other recent trial has.

CNN says that it will be covering the trial during its programming “as news warrants,” leaving the in-depth coverage to sister network HLN. HLN will be going wall-to-wall with coverage of the trial, in much the same was as it did with the Jodi Arias trial. George Howell will cover the trial in the mornings, Martin Savidge will cover in the afternoon, and David Mattingly will cover for “OutFront.”

Fox News says it will be streaming every minute of the trial live online and will “present live coverage” during the week on TV. It will also stream the trial live online. Phil Keating will be in Florida covering the trial for the channel.

CNN Special on Ft. Hood Shootings

Recent Palin Interviews, Queued Up For Cable

Palin_Bartiromo_8.29.jpgCNBC put its Gov. Sarah Palin interview, conducted Monday by Maria Bartiromo, to good use tonight. The network rushed together “A Maria Bartiromo Special: The Sarah Palin Interview” that aired at 10pmET.

The special concentrated almost entirely on energy issues, but Bartiromo did ask Gov. Palin if she’d been approached by Sen. McCain to be VP and whether she’d even want the job. “You know,” Palin said, “I go back and forth on thinking would I be able to help and contribute more as the Governor of the state of Alaska, which I am now and I think that we can do, help the nation more, become more energy independent and become more secure…I think today, where I am right now is probably where I can contribute most, so that’s my answer to the VP thing.”

And that admission didn’t come until the last minute of the show.

Producers kept a large CNBC EXCLUSIVE banner up through most of the program. The special was a series of questions and answers edited together, without Bartiromo creating “bridges” between them to create a true narrative. Presumably, that would have been the plan had today’s news not significantly moved up the air date.

Meanwhile, CNN and FNC aired recent interviews with Palin today as well.
