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.

Roger Goodell: ‘I Don’t Know How TMZ or Any Other Website Gets Their Information’

GoodellIn an interview with “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Norah O’Donnell, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed how TMZ—and not the NFL—got its hands on elevator footage showing Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee.

“I don’t know how TMZ or any other website gets their information,” Goodell said. “We are particularly reliant on law enforcement, that’s the most reliable, that’s the most credible, and we don’t seek to get that information from sources that are not credible.”  Goodell said the NFL asked for the same videotape TMZ secured on “several occasions.” He also didn’t rule out the possibility of Ray Rice returning to the NFL in the future.

Last night, TMZ executive producer Harvey Levin told Greta Van Susteren he doubted Goodell’s defense.  ”Why on earth does he not think the casino [where the incident occurred] video, which is the basis for what the police have in the first place; why does he suggest that the casino isn’t as credible as the police? The police got it from the casino.”

It Took Four People to Produce This Labor Day Cable News Special

Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 10.47.17 AMIn what may be the least labor-intensive Labor Day special, Greta Van Susteren travels to Alaska with wounded veterans and their spouses as a part of Operation Heal Our Patriots.

It’s not that those who worked on it didn’t do a lot of work, it’s because it took just four people to put together the one-hour special airing tonight at 7pmET. Van Susteren and Griff Jenkins shot the entire special — there are no two-camera shoots, no special lighting, just two reporters with hand-held cameras. Van Susteren and Jenkins then brought their camera cards back to Fox News, handed them to one producer and one editor, and from that work, got their special. We’re told the editor was able to cover up the shakey camera work.

The special was shot over the July 4th weekend in conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse which helps military couples reconnect and strengthen their relationships after overseas deployments. Some of these couples share their stories with Van Susteren in the Alaskan wilderness.
