Grand Jury Decision Leads to Night of Violence in Ferguson

Obama Ferguson PoliceAs Pres. Obama called for calm, angry protestors tried to flip a police cruiser in Ferguson, MO.

The president delivered a brief statement from the press briefing room tonight following the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s announcement that police officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

“There is inevitably going to be some negative reaction and it will make for good TV,” said the president as cable news double boxes showed the damage already being done. “But what we want to do is to make sure that we’re also focusing on those who can offer the kind of real progress that we know is possible.”

“You have a small number of knuckle heads causing the problems,” CNN’s Van Jones explained, just before he and CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon were overcome by tear gas fumes.

Cruiser FergusonIn his remarks about the grand jury’s decision, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said the media hasn’t helped the situation. “The most significant challenge encountered in this investigation has been the 24-hour news cycle and its insatiable appetite for something, for anything to talk about. Following closely behind were the nonstop rumors on social media,” said McCulloch.

Less than an hour after the president’s remarks, that police cruiser was on fire. Police told CNN correspondent Jason Carroll and his crew to leave the scene as live rounds in the cruiser started going off.

Update: 10:57pmET: FNC correspondent Steve Harrigan‘s camera was knocked to the ground.

Update: 11:29pmET: A protestor approached the live position of Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo and shouted “Fuck CNN.” “As we said at the top of this broadcast, we don’t know what’s going to happen. So we apologize for that,” Lemon said.

Update: 11:34pmET: MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and his guest Pastor Michael McBride leave their location as the sounds of gunfire are heard nearby. “That’s gunfire…. Alright…. We’re being told to fall back.”

Blitzer, Cooper to Lead CNN’s ‘Election Night in America’ Coverage

best_wb_ac_10.03.12CNN will turn to Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper–along with the Empire State Building–to headline the network’s election night coverage, dubbed “Election Night in America.”

The network will begin coverage at 5 p.m. ET, with Blitzer and Cooper joined by CNN’s Jake Tapper and John King, who will take his usual spot at the “CNN Magic Wall.” Election night analysis will include political analysts Gloria Borger and David Gergen, and CNN correspondents Dana Bash and Candy Crowley. Other commentators taking a seat around the table will be Michael Smerconish, Paul Begala, Jay Carney, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter, Newt Gingrich, Van Jones, Kevin Madden, and Ana Navarro.

CNN also plans to “take over” the Empire State Building, which will be used to display U.S. Senate vote results. As Senate results are projected, a vertical LED-illuminated “meter” atop the building’s spire will indicate with either red or blue. Once one of those colors reaches the top of the spire, control of the Senate will be indicated.

CNN International will broadcast CNN’s coverage of the midterm elections starting at 7 p.m., and at 9 p.m. ET, CNN en Español will provide Spanish language coverage, “Voto Latino 2014″, anchored by Carlos LópezPatricia Janiot and Fernando del Rincón.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Unites Democrats and Republicans in Praise of Tough, Fair Debate

AP GOVERNOR-FLORIDA-DEBATE A ELN USA FLMaybe we should just have CNN’s Jake Tapper moderate all the debates from now on. Tonight, Tapper showed how a strong moderator can peel political candidates away from their pre-planned quips and comfortably boring talking points. Viewers got to see, well, a real debate. “We asked questions that had not been asked, and tried to knock them off their talking points,” Tapper told TVNewser shortly after the debate ended. “We wanted this, as much as possible, to be a conversation.”

It was a real conversation between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Charlie Crist, and like conversations between two people who clearly do not like each other, it wasn’t always comfortable to watch. But it was fascinating, and it never felt scripted. Part of the credit for that goes directly to Tapper and his producers, who decided the format would be flexible–less about timing, and more about talking. At times, Tapper sat back, ignored the clock, and let the candidates dig in to each other’s answers. At other times, Tapper interrupted, cutting off talking points in mid-sentence with a friendly but firm “thank you.”

B0gSKMeIEAMDkXGA deftly moderated debate like CNN’s can be risky for candidates, but it was wonderful for viewers and voters. To make it happen, Tapper tells TVNewser he and the debate producers (pictured, left) worked for weeks on debate prep. “We went over and over the questions.” Tapper says it was essential that the candidates understood “you’re not going to get to filibuster, but then also, we’re going to try to get them to answer questions.” As in, you know, actually answering the questions.

To make that happen, Tapper consulted with Florida political reporters, asking for suggestions on issues that needed clarification late in the campaign–but also, asking the Florida press corp for some insight into exactly how the two candidates change the topic. “How has this candidate avoided this question in the past?”
