‘Ed Show’ Live From Columbus Ahead of Ohio SB5 Vote

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz will host “The Ed Show” on Monday and Tuesday from Ohio, where voters will head to to the polls this week to decide the fate of Senate Bill 5, a controversial re-write of the state’s union laws.

Schultz will broadcast from the Columbus Professional Firefighter’s Local67 Union Hall. Both Monday and Tuesday’s shows will be open to the public.

Which Sunday Shows Covered the News Corp. Hacking Scandal?

On Sunday, two of the network public affairs shows reported on the News Corp. hacking scandal and two didn’t. “Meet the Press” had Ohio Gov. John Kasich on as a guest. Kasich once hosted a show on FNC before he reentered politics. David Gregory asked Kasich about whether the scandal overseas, could affect News Corp.’s cable news channel here.

They have not been touched by this, they have told me, and I believe them. And we’ll just have to see how this all unfolds. Murdoch’s fired people, you know, he’s quoted as being told his head’s in his hands crying with the family that was impacted. I mean, it’s a terrible thing, and hopefully, we’ll get to the bottom of it and it will change journalism.

ABC’s “This Week” led with the news, as Christiane Amanpour reported the arrest of Rebekah Brooks, then discussed it later with Ken Auletta.

“FOX News Sunday” and CBS’s “Face the Nation” did not report on the story.

Syndicated show “The McLaughlin Group” also covered the scandal, while two other syndicated shows: “The Chris Matthews Show” and “The Wall Street Journal Report” — which gets its name from a News Corp. property, but is produced by NBC Universal — did not cover it.

Here’s how the media criticism shows: Fox News Watch and CNN’s Reliable Sources covered the story.

Heat-Mavs Game 6 Scores 15.0 Overnight Rating

Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat earned a 15.0 overnight rating, the highest-rated Game 6 on ABC, according to Nielsen.

Sunday’s closeout game was the third highest overnight rating for an NBA game on ABC, trailing Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals (18.2 overnight rating, Lakers/Celtics) and Game 5 of the 2004 NBA Finals (15.5 overnight rating, Lakers/Pistons). The game peaked with a 20.9 rating from 10:30-10:45 p.m. ET.

Ratings were up 22 percent compared to Game 6 last year (12.3 overnight rating) and up 35 percent compared to Game 6 of the 2006 Finals (11.1 overnight rating), when these same two teams met.

Locally, Game 7 was the highest-rated metered market rating ever for an NBA game in both Dallas (39.8) and Miami (36.2).

Rupert Murdoch: News Corp. RGA Donation ‘Had Nothing to do with Fox News’

In August, News Corp., the parent company of Fox News Channel, made a $1 million donation to the Republican Governors Association. As TVNewser pointed out at the time, media companies routinely give campaign cash to political organizations, though the RGA donation was unusually large.

News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch was in Washington D.C. yesterday to accept an award from The Media Institute, and he told Politico’s Keach Hagey that the donation had nothing to do with Fox News, or even politics:

“It doesn’t reflect on Fox News,” he said. “It had nothing to do with Fox News. The RGA [gift] was actually [a result of] my friendship with John Kasich.”

Kasich is a close friend of Murdoch, and a gubernatorial hopeful in Ohio. He is also a former Fox News host. News Corp. also recently made a $1 million donation to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
