The Morning Ticker: Brokaw, Exclusives, Rivera

  • The Hollywood Reporter reports NBC’s Tom Brokaw‘s cancer “appears to be gone. “I’ve gotten some very good news in the last week… I hope that within six weeks I can be on a drug-maintenance program,” Brokaw said.

  • Geraldo Rivera‘s verdict is in on Jay Carney‘s first CNN appearance Wednesday night with Senator John McCain. Let’s just say he thinks the former Press Secretary has some cable news work to do.

Behind the TV Scenes: ‘OutFront’ EP Susie Xu

This summer, we’re putting a spotlight on the industry’s top producers; getting the inside story about their shows, how they got to where they are, and advice they have for future TV journalists.

Susie XuIn 13 years at CNN, Susie Xu has risen from intern, to field reporter, to producer for “Larry King Live,” to her current role as executive producer of “Erin Burnett OutFront.” Xu was born in Tianjin, China, the second child in her family, born during China’s one-child policy. “From the beginning of my life, I was really not supposed to be born,” Xu tells us. “The government came down on my parents and said, ‘you’re not supposed to have a second child.’ But my parents defied them, and I think that’s shaped a lot of who I am.” Xu and her family immigrated to the U.S. when she was four. She grew up in Grove City, PA and graduated from Penn State.

TVNewser: You’ve risen up the ranks to an EP position pretty quickly. What helped you climb the ladder?

Xu: A lot of it was taking every opportunity that CNN gave me and just running with it. I don’t say this as someone who drinks the Kool-Aid of the company, but CNN has provided so many opportunities in terms of different skills that I can gain, different jobs that I can do. I started out doing show producing, running prompter, running scripts to Wolf Blitzer. Suddenly, there was an opportunity in New York and be part of the live production. I jumped on that opportunity. Within, not even two years, an opportunity opened up in the Beijing bureau to field and package produce. I had never been on the newsgathering side of things, but because I’m fluent in Chinese, and because I have that interest and that drive, my boss at the time at CNNI gave me a chance. From there, producing for Larry King just fell into my lap, and they called me when I was just coming home from Beijing, and said, “we need you to go film a special about transvestites in Miami… I knew nothing about that, but I just thought, ‘well, that’s really interesting, I’ll jump on a plane and go do it.’ A lot of it is just throwing caution to the wind and jumping in head first and figuring out as you go.

TVNewser: What was it like for you producing in the Beijing bureau?

Xu: I found it to be more difficult to acclimate than I thought, because I do know the language and have family there. I’ve been to China many times to visit family, so I thought this was going to be a piece of cake. But operating as journalist in a country that’s so restrictive will always take some getting used to. You know you’re going into a communist country; you know they’re going to censor you, but at the same time it’s always shocking what you’re being censored for. We did a story on a really crippling drought in Western China, and that to me was a weather story, and how it affected the country economically. But the local government really saw that as a threat, and got really paranoid, and followed us around to every single shoot. Every single location, there was a

Erin Burnett Fact-Checks Israeli Official’s Allegations that CNN Coverage is Biased

DermerCNNOn her show last night, Erin Burnett followed up on a segment from Thursday’s “OutFront,” where Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer called out CNN for biased coverage of the war in Gaza. Burnett invited Dermer to come for Friday’s show to, in part to disprove some of his assertions, but he couldn’t come on. So Burnett fact-checked his comments.

At one point, Dermer says, ”I’ve been listening to two hours of reports on CNN. I have seen split screens, horrible pictures that any decent human being would be horrified by. I think that that does a disservice to your viewers to not give them the context they need to make these judgments.”

Burnett then played a clip from part of that prior two hours during which Wolf Blitzer did report on how the U.N. demanded that Hamas stop endangering civilians “by placing weapons in U.N. schools.”

The fact-checking continued…

Fox News Most-Watched During Coverage of Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight

MegynKelly304FNC was the most-watched cable news channel in both Total Day and Primetime for yesterday’s breaking news stories of the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and Israel’s ground war into Gaza.

In primetime, FNC averaged 3.08 million total viewers and 570,000 in the A25-54 demo. 2It was FNC’s second-best Total Day and primetime this year, following the night of State of the Union on January 28. Fox News’s “The Kelly File” and “Hannity” had all-time highs in viewers.

CNN was second in all averages and day parts. Several CNN hours outdrew Fox News in the demo including soon after the news from Ukraine broke. From 1pm to 5pMET and again at 7pmET, for “Erin Burnett Outfront,” CNN was No. 1 in the demo.

White, Male Guests Dominate Cable News

A new survey by Fair finds cable news guests are overwhelmingly white and male in the evening hours. Fair surveyed six cable news shows — “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity” on Fox News, “All In with Chris Hayes” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC and “OutFront with Erin Burnett” and “Anderson Cooper 360″ on CNN — over five weeks for the study.

Of the 1,015 guests that appeared across the shows in the survey period, 84 percent were white and 72 percent were male. The most diverse show in terms of ethnicity was “All In,” while “The O’Reilly Factor” was the most diverse in terms of gender.
