Reporting the Return of the Crew of the Maersk Alabama

CNNMaersk_4.16.jpgThe crew of the Maersk Alabama returned to Andrews AFB around 1amET this morning. The Alabama’s Capt. Richard Phillips was unable to meet his crew before they left Kenya because of another pirate attack on a U.S. ship, so he remains aboard the USS Bainbridge.

The 1amET arrival was perfect timing for west coast stations’ late newscasts, but what about the national cable news channels?

How did they report it?

Goldberg to Hannity: “The Right Has To Stop Behaving Like The Left Used To Behave With George Bush”

hannity_4-15.bmpTonight Sean Hannity will be in Atlanta with Newt Gingrich, Joe the Plumber and others for a Tax Day Tea Party, but earlier this week he got a bit of a talking to by FNC contributor, Bernie Goldberg.

As Hannity described the Obama administration’s “racing to take credit” after the rescue of pirate hostage Capt. Richard Phillips, Goldberg brought up an “issue about this that troubles me.”

“We have to stop going out of our way to find fault with every single thing he does,” said Goldberg. “Look, I think I’ve got a little credibility on this issue: I don’t like his economic policies, I don’t like his tax policies, I wrote that book ‘A Slobbering Love Affair’ about how the media slobbered all over him, but I’m not going to be like the left was with George Bush and criticize everything he does.”

On last night’s Countdown, the exchange was part of Keith Olbermann‘s “worst persons” segment.

Brian Williams Talks With Captain of the USS Bainbridge

Castellano_4.13.jpgNBC’s Brian Williams conducted an interview this afternoon with Commander Frank X. Castellano, pictured here with Capt. Richard Phillips on Sunday. Cmdr. Castellano is the captain of USS Bainbridge, which welcomed Capt. Phillips after his four-day hostage ordeal in the Indian Ocean. The only other interview Castellano has done is with his hometown newspaper in Bellport, New York.

Williams discussed his interview on MSNBC this afternoon. The interview will air tonight on Nightly News.

Reporting the Rescue of Capt. Phillips

CaptPhillips_4.12.jpgCNN, Fox News and MSNBC were all in taped programming during the 1pmET hour when the news broke that Capt. Richard Phillips, held hostage by pirates for four days, had been rescued.

CNN was first to report the news during “Fareed Zakaria GPS” at 1:21pmET. MSNBC interrupted their documentary programming at 1:31pm and Fox News interrupted the Pastor Rick Warren Easter special to report the news at 1:34pm.

Lester Holt anchored a special report for NBC stations at 1:40pm and Bill Weir anchored a report for ABC stations at 1:44pm. Not surprisingly, CBS did not interrupt final round coverage of The Masters to report the news.

> More from an emailer: CBS did a crawl about 1:45-1:50 during its pre-Masters coverage.

> Programming notes:
• FNC preempted Huckabee (8pm) and Hannity (9pm) producing a live update at 8 then rebroadcasting the 7pm hour of The FOX Report. Geraldo Rivera picked up at 9 and continues to anchor (as of 10:40pm).
Larry King anchored a live edition of his show at 9pmET on CNN.
