On CBS News, Seth Doane detailed the lengths he had to go to to find people in Beijing willing to talk about the 25th anniversary, which he said is one “they do not want remembered.” Doane said he has had interviews “mysteriously canceled” and venues where he was supposed to shoot shut down by police: Read more

China Allows CBS News Rare Question at Government Press Conference

CBS News correspondent Seth Doane got the rare opportunity to ask a question at a high-level government press conference in Beijing this week. Doane’s question, which he was required to submit to China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs ahead of time, was one of about a dozen selected to be answered at the press conference.

Before Doane’s report aired on “Evening News” last night, Scott Pelley pointed out the differences between a Chinese press conference and an American one. “Long live the First Amendment,” Pelley said. Watch:

Morning Shows Jockey over Panhandler with the Golden Voice

Another viral video has made it to the mainstream media.

TVSpy has the video of Ted Williams, a down-on-his luck man from Columbus, OH who has been using his God-given gift — his voice — to earn money on the side of the road. Not long after the video hit the internet, TV networks began making calls trying to reel in an exclusive interview with him.

Networks Get out Checkbooks for Interviews with Rescued Chilean Miners

The rescued Chilean miners are beginning to talk to U.S. TV networks, which means the payments in the form of licensing agreements have begun. NBC’s Natalie Morales, who arrived in Chile more than a week ago, got interviews over the weekend with two of the rescued miners, Carlos Barrios and Victor Zamora, 13th and 14th out of the mine.

TVNewser has learned NBC News paid a licensing fee for videos Zamora and Barrios took from inside the capsule as it ascended to the surface. The network also paid for video from Zamora’s 34th birthday party celebrated by his family in his absence. (video after the jump). Morales mentioned the licensing agreement in the on-camera tag of her live report on “Today.”

ABC News paid a licensing fee for video of second rescued miner “Super” Mario Sepulveda — both in the hospital and at his home. Correspondent John Quinones, conducted the interview from New York over the weekend, an hour after Sepulveda was released from the hospital. In his piece, Quinones mentions the network had licensed home video of Sepulveda at his home. ABC News cameras then followed Sepulveda to the beach where he jumped into the ocean — sans clothes — and prayed on the beach with his son.

CBS News correspondent Seth Doane briefly interviewed one of the miners, but CBS News tells us they are not entering into any licensing deals with the miners.

So how much did NBC and ABC pay?
