Dorner Cornered, California Manhunt Pushes Up Against State of the Union Coverage

In the hour leading up to the State of the Union, the cable news networks would ordinarily be in continuing coverage of the President’s annual address. Instead, they have been in breaking news mode as choppers hover over a remote cabin in a California forest. Inside that cabin, is believed to be murder suspect and former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner.

On CNN, new anchor Chris Cuomo and old hand Anderson Cooper teamed up for coverage for part of the early evening. At one point, correspondent Miguel Marquez on the scene in San Bernardino County, took off his lapel microphone and clipped it on a Sheriff’s Dept. spokesperson who updated the media on the situation. She didn’t have much to offer, and appeared not to appreciate Marquez’s pressing questions. Wolf Blitzer took over at 8:50pm with State of the Union coverage.

On MSNBC, Chris Matthews put politics aside and anchored coverage of the shootout and fire leading up to the State of the Union. During a lull in the news, Matthews commented on, “this strange connection of the mind that becomes criminal and the love of media attention. And the way this person, apparently, was seeking out media attention. Mentioning names of people in the media, myself even.”

On FNC, the network’s breaking news aficionado, Shepard Smith is halfway around the world in Rome covering the breaking news of the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, leaving much of the anchoring late today to Trace Gallagher in the Los Angeles bureau. During the 8pm hour, as the misinformation swirled like smoke from that cabin, Bill O’Reilly was the voice of reason for weary anchors, reporters and viewers: “It doesn’t matter [about conflicting information]. It will clarify itself. In a breaking news story like this that happens all the time.”

More: As CNN takes the State of the Union coverage, Anderson Cooper continued with the breaking news on HLN along with Nancy Grace.

More: Brian Williams on NBC and Diane Sawyer on ABC briefed viewers about the situation in Southern California before getting to the State of the Union coverage

More: As the president spoke, law enforcement in Big Bear removed a body from the burned out cabin. It is believed to be Dorner. After the president concluded his address, the networks returned to the situation in California. Diane Sawyer brought in ABC’s Pierre Thomas who reported the news. CNN reported the same. Marquez had confirmed it earlier, at 9:59pmET, on HLN.

Update, 11:35pmET: So it appears the sources relied upon by CNN, ABC, NBC and others who reported a body being taken out of the cabin, were not accurate. During a news conference from the scene the San Bernardino Country Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said no body had been found, identified or recovered from the cabin.

How the Evening Newscasts Reported the deaths of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros

British by birth, photojournalist Tim Hetherington called Brooklyn home. He was a dual citizen of the U.S. and the U.K. and much of his work at war was for American broadcasters. During his career, Hetherington had worked for ABC News and CNN. Hetherington and Getty photographer Chris Hondros, were killed yesterday during shelling in Misrata, Libya.

As for how the deaths were reported on the evening newscasts Wednesday, NBC’s Brian Williams, ABC’s Diane Sawyer and CBS’s Harry Smith in for Katie Couric reported short voice over stories, with Williams using a soundbite from Hetherington on “Morning Joe” last September.

All three broadcasts then went to their correspondents in Libya for the latest news: CBS’s Allen Pizzey, one of the few journalists to make it into Misrata, also reported on how Hetherington died during a Q&A with Smith: “Just bad luck as far as I can tell. Wrong place, wrong time. What can you say.” NBC’s Stephanie Gosk and ABC’s Miguel Marquez reported on the fighting from Benghazi.

ABC’s Miguel Marquez Beaten in Bahrain. AUDIO: ‘I just got beat…rather badly…by a gang of thugs.’

ABC News correspondent Miguel Marquez was beaten in Bahrain’s capital, Manama early Thursday morning in the latest attack on journalists covering violent protests across the Muslim world.

Marquez was not badly injured, but he was hit with billy clubs and his camera was pulled from his hands while he yelled, “Journalist, journalist, journalist!” over and over again, trying to show he was not a protester.

“Hey! I’m a journalist here! … I’m going! I’m going! I’m going! I’m going! … I’m hit,” he said. Marquez was on the phone with ABC News in New York when the beating occurred so the entire incident was captured on audio:

Yesterday, CBS News revealed that their chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan was beaten and sexually assaulted in Cairo’s Tahrir Square last Friday night.
