Pres. Obama: ‘We Will Not Be Sending U.S. Troops Back Into Combat in Iraq’

President Obama delivered a statement on Iraq from the South Lawn of the White House shortly before noon. The broadcast and cable networks all provided live coverage of his remarks on the increased violence in the region.

On NBC, David Gregory anchored from Washington with Peter Alexander at the White House and Richard Engel in Iraq. David Muir anchored for ABC, joined by Terry Moran in Northern Iraq. CBS’ special report was anchored by Scott Pelley in New York with Major Garrett at the White House.

As for the cable networks: Wolf Blitzer anchored on CNN, with Arwa Damon in Iraq. Eric Shawn and Uma Pemmaraju anchored on Fox News, joined by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier from Washington. On MSNBC, Tamron Hall anchored with Chuck Todd contributing.

Obama said he is weighing the options for U.S. military support in Iraq, but ruled out using ground forces in the conflict. “We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq, but I have asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options,” he said.

9/11 12 Years Later

On this 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the cable news networks are giving significant coverage to the remembrances in Lower Manhattan. Fox News and CNN began coverage around 8:40amET ahead of the national moment of silence led by Pres. and Mrs. Obama and Vice President and Mrs. Biden. FNC’s Rick Leventhal and Eric Shawn are reporting from Ground Zero. Deborah Feyerick is there for CNN and David Shuster is in Lower Manhattan for Al Jazeera America.

Once again, MSNBC is replaying the “Today” show from Sept. 11, 2001. It has become an annual tradition for the network. In earlier years, the rebroadcast was watched by a majority of tuned in cable news viewers. But you have to wonder how many more 9/11s MSNBC will replay the tragedy in full.

NBC News produced a network wide 4-minute special report at 8:45amET. That’s in contrast to NBC’s coverage at this time last year when the “Today” show was heavily criticized for not carrying the moment of silence and instead continued an interview with Kris Jenner. Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie anchored the report.

ABC and CBS incorporated the moment of silence into their morning shows. That being the case it did not air in many Central Time zone markets. Still in their own morning shows, many Mountain and Pacific Time Zone stations produced their own coverage — or chose not to.

 

Cable Nets Cover Veterans Day Wreath-Laying

MacCallum will also co-anchor “America’s News Headquarters” alongside Eric Shawn and Jamie Colby from 10am-1pmET.

Additionally, Fox News correspondents Amy Kellogg and Greg Palkot will continue to report on the Jubilee events throughout the day. Fox will also stream the processional and pageant online.

As we told you earlier this week, Brooke Baldwin and Piers Morgan will anchor CNN’s coverage of tomorrow’s pageant. HLN and MSNBC have not slated extended coverage of the event, but both networks will air highlights during news updates throughout the day.

Fox News will feature regularly-scheduled Saturday night programming — “America’s News Headquarters” with Eric Shawn and Arthel Neville at 6pmET and “Fox Report” with Harris Faulkner at 7pmET.

So, How’s Your UN Week Going?

It’s UN week here in New York, where diplomats tie up traffic and ring up tabs.

Eric Shawn has been covering the goings-on at the UN for Fox News. CNN’s man at the UN is Richard Roth, and NBC’s chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell is reporting for “Nightly News” as well as anchoring her MSNBC show from New York.

While Pres. Obama had his say earlier this morning at the UN, there was one notable absence this year: the world leader who gave this 90-minute speech in 2009, is nowhere near New York this week … at least we don’t think so.

And this got us thinking about UN week 2008, when CBS’s Katie Couric caught up with GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin. Palin was in New York for meetings with several world leaders. Couric’s interviews with Gov. Palin two years ago this week were both harshly criticized and award-winning.
