Amy Robach Inspires at NLGJA Gala, Plus a TV News Selfie

NLGJASelfie2

ABC’s Amy Robach lit up the room last night as host NLGJA’s Healdines & Headliners event. Robach, who has three more chemotherapy treatments in her fight against breast cancer told the crowd that we all have battles to face, but it’s how you fight that will determine the win.

“Until it hits you here,” she said to the crowd, pointing to her heart, “you don’t really know what it’s like to be in battle. And once you get in there and get your hands a little bloodied and you see your comrades next to you, you become so powerful.” Robach told us the support she’s gotten since her diagnosis in November has been nothing short of overwhelming.

Robach, accompanied by her husband Andrew Shue, was among 300 attendees, including dozens of TV news anchors, reporters and producers who turned out for at the annual event. “They gave me the night off,” said CNN’s Richard Quest who has been front and center for the network’s Malaysia Airlines coverage.

MeredithVieiraAmyRobachWe chatted with Shepard Smith who was trading Miami stories with his former local news colleague, now Weather Channel meteorologist Bryan Norcross. And there was a cross-network, lead-in pairing as CNN’s Noon anchor Ashleigh Banfield was accompanied by MSNBC’s 1pm anchor Ronan Farrow. Farrow told us he’s getting more comfortable each day hosting his “Ronan Farrow Daily.” The cable news newbie says he’s getting good advice from TV veterans.

Tamron Hall told us she’s still adjusting to her new schedule. The new 9am “Today” show co-host is now doing double morning duty with her MSNBC show at 11am, giving her about 45 minutes to prepare for the second show. “I have very good producers who make sure it comes together,” Hall said.

Pres. Obama: ‘The Affordable Care Act is Not Just a Website’

FoxObamaThe president appeared in the Rose Garden this morning to discuss what’s working, and what’s not working with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. “Let me remind everybody that the Affordable Care Act is not just a website. It’s much more,” said the president at the start of his remarks.

In addition to cable news network coverage, Matt Lauer anchored a special report for NBC, and Jamie Colby anchored for FOX stations. ABC and CBS left coverage to their websites.

Flanked by Americans who have successfully signed up, the president said, “The product is good. The health insurance that’s being provided is good. It’s high quality and it’s affordable.” But the president added, “There’s no sugar-coating it. It’s been too slow and people are stuck during the application process. And I think it is fair to say that nobody is more frustrated by that than I am.”

ObamaFaint > More: Just before NoonET, a woman standing behind the president began to feel weak. After wavering for more than a minute, and assisted by the woman next to her, the president turned around, telling the woman, “I gotcha. You’re okay,” then joked, “This is what happens when I talk too long.” She was helped away from the event by a staffer as the president concluded his remarks.

Fox News Anchors Were Urged to Attend GLAAD Event, Emails Show

GLAAD lashed out at Fox News this week after anchors Jamie Colby and Kimberly Guilfoyle attended the organization’s annual media awards, calling the network’s track record on LGBT issues “abysmal.” But according to an email obtained by TVNewser, a GLAAD executive encouraged Colby and Guilfoyle — among others at Fox News — to attend the event.

In a statement to Equality Matters, which is run by Media Matters Action Network, GLAAD’s vice president of communications Rich Ferraro used Colby and Guilfoyle’s attendance to condemn Fox News:

If Kimberly and Jamie expect to attend future GLAAD events, they will first need to sit down with us to discuss Fox News’ embarrassing, biased and misinformed coverage of LGBT issues. The invitation is open. Fox News’s track record on LGBT issues is abysmal, and it makes no sense to me why any LGBT people or allies would want to be a part of that.

TVNewser has obtained an email from GLAAD director of creative development Marc Honaker urging a current FNC staffer to “ask [Roger] Ailes or Suzanne [Scott] to buy a table for FNC.”

Honaker, who once worked for Bill O’Reilly‘s show, said in the email that Colby and Guilfoyle had an expressed an interest in attending, writing, “We’d love to have lots of FNCers!”

Cable Nets Cover Veterans Day Wreath-Laying

The wreath-laying ceremony at the tomb of the Unknowns on this Veterans Day, falling this year on a Sunday, got the traditional coverage on the cable news networks this morning. Jamie Colby and Eric Shawn anchored on Fox News, Melissa Harris-Perry anchored during her show on MSNBC and Candy Crowley anchored coverage on CNN before “Reliable Sources” began at 11:11am.

Cable Channels Plan To Go Live Overnight As Hurricane Isaac Approaches

Hurricane Isaac is expected to make landfall overnight tonight on the Gulf Coast, and you can bet that cable news channels are planning special live programming to cover it. Weather Channel, CNN and Fox News Channel will be live overnight in the hours normally reserved for repeats.

Weather will have live coverage throughout the night, with Reynolds Wolf and Jim Cantore in New Orleans, Mike Seidel in Alabama and Paul Goodloe and Eric Fisher in Mississippi. Locations are subject to change, if Isaac’s path changes.

Fox News will be live from 1-4 AM, with Gregg Jarrett and Jamie Colby anchoring. The network is sending “Fox & Friends First” anchor Anna Kooiman to Baton Rouge, joining Elizabeth PrannJonathan Serrie and Casey Stegall in New Orleans. Steve Harrigan is in Biloxi, MS, Rick Leventhal is in Dauphin Island, AL, and Phil Keating is in Mobile, AL.

CNN will have a live edition of “Piers Morgan Tonight at midnight (it was already planned for the RNC), and will add live coverage from 1-4 AM. “Early Start,” which normally begins at 5 AM, will start even earlier at 4 AM tomorrow.

Update: MSNBC will be live til 1 AM with live coverage of the RNC and Isaac. An overnight decision will be made soon.

Update AM: MSNBC ended up replaying its primetime programming through 3 AM, and rerunning the RNC speeches beginning at 3. It broke into programming twice an hour with Hurricane Isaac updates.

We’ll update with more information as we get it.

CNN, FNC Fail in Early Reporting of Health Care Ruling

The expediency of TV news is not meeting well with the depth involved in the ruling on the Affordable Care Act of 2010, more commonly known as Obamacare.

“Be cautious with us, we’re trying to do the best we can,” said Bill Hemmer on Fox News, at 10:11am. “We may need to update our lower third, which may not be correct,” added Megyn Kelly, which stated the court had ruled the individual mandate unconstitutional.

At 10:07, CNN’s Kate Bolduan reported the same: “It appears as if the Supreme Court justices have struck down the individual mandate.”

“Wow, that’s a dramatic moment, if in fact the Supreme Court has ruled the individual mandate is in fact unconstitutional,” said Wolf Blitzer.

In fact, they didn’t and it was more complicated than that.

At 10:11am, a breathless NBC justice correspondent Pete Williams got it right in an NBC/MSNBC simulcast, “They have said that it can’t be upheld under the commerce clause, the individual mandate can’t. But [Chief Justice John Roberts] said it can be upheld under the court’s taxing authority. So the bottom line here is the Supreme Court has upheld the health care law. It is a penalty, not a tax.”

That clear enough?

Probably not. Our suggestion: see how the three evening newscasts report it, or read the New York Times.

As for the broadcast networks:  Matt Lauer anchored on NBC until 10:26am, Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos on ABC, with Terry Moran at the court also aired their special report until 10:26. On CBS, Scott Pelley was in Washington along with Jan Crawford at the court with their special report running until 10:30. And FNC’s Jon Scott anchored on FOX stations until 10:27

HLN, CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg and C-Span, are also giving the decision extensive coverage.
