Inauguration Notes: The Day After

• The New York Times’ Alessandra Stanley takes a wide look at the spectrum of TV coverage yesterday. “Viewers were never quite sure where to look: Television celebrated a new president making history, but the screen also belonged to those millions in Washington who made history just by showing up,” she writes. She also notes that through all the coverage, “The best narration was wordless.”

Paul J. Gough of The Hollywood Reporter writes about the CNN control room yesterday. “Fifty pool cameras are taking in everything at the Capitol, along with 46 high-definition cameras that CNN have set up on their own, as well as feeds from all over the country as the nation tunes in to watch Obama’s inauguration,” he writes. As for the Roberts/Obama oath flub, CNN correspondent Jeffrey Toobin said, “I almost fell out of my chair. It’s only a 35-word oath.”

• The Los Angeles TimesScott Collins writes “Fox News was the only major national TV outlet that carried a live telecast of former President Bush’s homecoming speech to cheering supporters in Midland, Texas.” While it is true FNC took the majority of the 20-minute speech, MSNBC also was live as Bush approached the podium. After he began his speech, Chris Matthews said they would monitor the feed and returned to the parade.

Cramer Talks Ailes, More in Monday Profiles

cramer_10-20.jpgCNBC’s Jim Cramer, who has found himself at the center of the CNBC-FBN battle recently, is profiled on both coasts today.

The Los Angeles Times’ Scott Collins writes Cramer has ignored the ads taken by FOX in the wake of his Today show pronouncement. “I have not seen any of the Fox ads,” he said. “You know why? For the same reason that I haven’t read a blog about me in years; I haven’t read an article about me in years. Because you know what? I gotta do my job.”

FBN EVP Kevin Magee is quoted as well. “People don’t like to lose money,” Magee said. “When he tells you to stay in a stock that collapses a few days later, people remember that stuff.”

In a David Carr column in the New York Times, Cramer defends his five-year comment. “It was one of the greatest calls of my life,” he said, “And I’ve been pilloried for it.”

Cramer also discussed his former boss, FNC CEO Roger Ailes. “I like Roger, he taught me a lot,” he said. “He taught me I am a hate ‘em or like ‘em person. The hated is the flip side of being liked.”

And in case you’re wondering, this time the New York Times included the disclaimer about their content-sharing agreement with CNBC.
