NYC Business Owner Sues Fox News Hosts Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteren

A New York City business owner is suing Fox News hosts Bill O’Reilly and Greta Van Susteren, as well as reporter Juliet Huddy on defamation charges. The woman is Aviva Nash, and her business is Drum Cafe, which is a team building company, with a heavy emphasis on, not surprisingly, drumming. She believes that segments on Fox News about government agencies using her services defamed her business.

The Hollywood Reporter‘s Eriq Gardner has more:

Nash believes that as the result of the show, she has been fingered for perpetrating a “con,” that her business enterprise has been implicated in illegal activity.

As for Van Susteren, on her own show, the host said, “It is so unbelievably insane to take the taxpayer money to do something like that.”

Nash says calling her insane is false. Also, Van Susteren allegedly responded to one of her guests by saying, “When you say blatant abuse, I say stealing.”

8.8 Earthquake Strikes Chile Overnight

Chile1.jpg

The U.S. cable news networks are providing coverage this morning of an 8.8 earthquake that struck central Chile overnight, along the Pacific coast. This is the most powerful earthquake to hit the region in 50 years — since 1960′s 9.5 quake, the biggest in recorded history.

FNC, CNN and MSNBC are relying on images from TV Chile as well as from that network’s news channel 24 Horas. CNN is also relying on information from CNN Chile, and CNN en Espanol. MSNBC is using the resources of NBCU’s Spanish-language network Telemundo. That network, as well as Univision, have been airing uninterrupted coverage from Chile this morning.

Reporting times: Fox News – 2:35amEST, CNN/U.S. – 2:59am, MSNBC – 3:25am. The quake struck at 3:34am. Santiago is two hours ahead of EST.

> More: I received an email from Todd Ogasawara, editor of mediabistro.com site MobileContentToday, a short time ago. Todd lives in Honolulu:

We’re under an ocean-wide tsunami warning (first in decades) caused by the massive earthquake in Chile. Whatever hits will hit around 11:19am HST (4:19pm Eastern) Saturday Feb. 27.

Just got back from Safeway where foot traffic was starting to build by the time I left at 2:25am.

Obama on Peace Prize: “I Do Not Feel I Deserve to be in the Company of So Many of the Transformative Figures Who’ve Been Honored by this Prize’

ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX aired special reports this morning as Pres. Obama announced he would accept the Nobel Peace Prize. “I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments,” Obama said from the Rose Garden, “but rather as an affirmation of America’s leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.” [The screengrab from NBC is from Washington station WRC which was in a local news broadcast at the time.]

CNN, FNC, MSNBC, CNBC and FBN also carried Obama’s remarks.

Related: Time‘s Jim Poniewozik on some of this morning‘s cable news coverage: “…at 9:39, Fox anchor Megyn Kelly mentioned the prize award for (I timed it with a stopwatch) 11.1 seconds. After which Bill Hemmer segued: ‘Hey, meet the guys who built a pumpkin cannon!’ To be fair, it was a really awesome pumpkin cannon.”

Only, it wasn’t Megyn Kelly who said that… she’s on maternity leave… it was fill-in anchor Juliet Huddy.

Juliet Huddy Rejoins Fox News, At Least According to Twitter

HuddyTweet_9.17.bmp

Juliet Huddy, late of “The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet” on FOX-TV, has officially re-joined Fox News Channel. She’d been filling in on FNC as well as FoxNews.com’s Strategy Room since “M and J” went away in June.

Fox News confirms the Tweet. She’ll be a substitute anchor for the network where she hosted “Dayside” with Mike Jerrick. That show morphed into “The Morning Show” and went to broadcast TV in January, 2007.

Later this afternoon, Huddy tweeted, “New segment on O’Reilly Factor — ‘Dumbest Things’. See you on Fridays!”

Cable Differs on Healthcare Meetings

The AP’s David Bauder writes about this afternoon’s cable news coverage, or lack of coverage, of the first of three Pres. Obama town hall meetings this week as he continues to sell healthcare reform.

Fox News Channel cut away from President Barack Obama’s town hall meeting on health care reform Tuesday as he faced
a far more polite crowd than has attended many meetings hosted by
members of Congress recently. CNN and MSNBC carried the session in
full. The loud public debates have been a tonic for cable news
networks during normally quiet August.

When FNC cut away, anchors Trace Gallagher and Juliet Huddy interviewed guests and showed soundbites from Sen. Arlen Specter‘s town hall earlier in the day.

“Any contentious questions, anybody yelling, we will bring it to you here,” Gallagher said. Fox never returned to live coverage. Obama seemed to invite tougher questions toward the end of the town hall. “I don’t want people thinking I just have a bunch of
plants in here,” he said. At the event’s end, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell noted the questions were “not too challenging.”

FNC’s Weekend Jackson Plans

Fox News has added a live hour tomorrow afternoon at 2pmET/11amPT to cover the Michael Jackson story. The hour will be anchored by Kelly Wright and Juliet Huddy. The business block stays intact from 10am-NoonET. Also, Greta Van Susteren will anchor a live “On the Record” tomorrow night at 9pmET from Los Angeles.

And WebNewser reports on another rare move the network has made.

Time Warner Center Hosts Annual NLGJA Benefit

More than 300 TVNewsers packed Time Warner Center’s 10th floor event space last night for the 14th annual NLGJA Headlines and Headliners benefit and silent auction. CNN’s Soledad O’Brien emceed the event which raised more than $130,000 for NLGJA’s annual programs and scholarships.

In attendance: Geraldo Rivera, Juliet Huddy, Mike Jerrick, Natalie Morales, Meredith Vieira and her former “The View” co-host Joy Behar; Jeanne Moos, Jane Velez Mitchell, Jenna Wolf, and Alison Stewart; NBC News president Steve Capus, FNC VP John Moody and many more (we had to duck out half way through the event so probably missed some late-comers.) Here are some of the faces in the crowd:

Several local newscasters, who headed back to their stations to anchor the 10 or 11 O’Clock shows, were in attendance, including Ernie Anastos and Dari Alexander of WNYW, Sade Baderinwa and Bill Ritter of WABC, and Chris Wragge of WCBS, doing double duty this week for the local station and the network.

At this hour, five noteworthy auction items remain on eBay.

“Mike and Juliet” Not Renewed

mj_1-8.jpg“The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet” has not been picked up for a third season, announced Twentieth Television president and COO Bob Cook today.

“Over the past two years, we set out to produce a high-quality show that provided viewers with an engaging source of entertainment,” he said. “We believe we accomplished this goal. Unfortunately, the current serious economic conditions made it challenging to continue producing the type of unique program that we wanted to deliver.”

Original episodes of the program will end in June.

Last January there were questions whether the program would be picked up for a second season, although it was ultimately renewed and expanded to more markets. Co-hosts Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy previously served as hosts of “Dayside” and “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Fox News.
