- CNN has NALEO (National Association of Latino Elected Officials) covered. Suzanne Malveaux anchored Newsroom International from the conference; Jim Acosta and Jessica Yellin will report; CNN en Español is there and Wolf Blitzer will interview Sen. Marco Rubio today for “The Situation Room.”
- The Supreme Court ruled today that the FCC “failed to give Fox or ABC fair notice prior to the broadcasts in question that fleeting expletives and momentary nudity could be found actionably indecent.” ABC is pleased: “We’re pleased with the decision of the Supreme Court regarding the episode of NYPD Blue.”

During the work day (9am-4pmET), CNN has long relied on “CNN Newsroom” to bridge the gap between its morning shows and “The Situation Room.” Now the network seems to be switching it up a little bit, tweaking the long-running format. At NoonET today, CNN launched a new hour of “CNN Newsroom” called “Newsroom International.”
The hour looks a lot like the typical “CNN Newsroom” programming, but instead of talking U.S. politics or business, the hour focuses on international news and events. Given what is happening in Syria, and the elections in Egypt and Greece, the timing for the new format couldn’t have been better.
CNN has been making tweaks to its programming lineup over the last few weeks, most notably canceling “John King USA” and adding an extra hour of “Situation Room.”
The logline for the new hour is after the jump.

With Kentucky’s 67-59 win over Kansas last night, March Madness has officially come to an end. That also means that it is time to declare a winner in TVNewser’s 2012 March Madness bracket challenge.

Fox Business Network stocks editor Liz MacDonald!
“It was great fun going up against really tough competition,” MacDonald says. “I am honored and thrilled to be this year’s champion.”
It was a close match this year, with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and Kyra Phillips very close behind MacDonald in the standings. This is the second straight year that a competitor for one of the business news networks won. Last year’s winner was Bloomberg TV’s Dominic Chu. Chu also had a good showing this year, placing ninth.
In last place, tragically, was your humble TVNewser editor, who clearly needs to reevaluate his college basketball picking skills. My strategy of picking teams who had cool mascots (Blue Devils? Awesome!) may not have been the most sound.
A big “Thank You!” to all of this year’s participants.
The final standings are below.
CNN is shifting its dayside anchor lineup.

To mark World AIDS Day today, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta moderated a panel discussion at George Washington University this morning hosted by grassroots advocacy group ONE. The panel featured three Presidents — Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton — as well as Bono and Alicia Keys.
Following the panel’s conclusion, Gupta and Bono were interviewed by CNN Newsroom anchor Suzanne Malveaux:
CNN’s Awkward Interview with Martha Stewart: ‘I thought this was going to be about my beautiful entertaining book’
Kind of a rough show for CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux Monday. During the NoonET hour, this happened. About an hour earlier, Malveaux interviewed Martha Stewart about her new book — her 75th. After a couple questions on the book, Malveaux asked about the new book by Stewart’s daughter Alexis, “Whateverland,” which does not always give a flattering portrayal of her mother. “I’m not going to say anything bad about the book, because we were laughing hysterically when we read it,” said Stewart.
Malveaux then tried to move on, asking about Stewart’s time in prison. “I thought this was going to be about my beautiful entertaining book!”
And then politics, as Malveaux said: “You are a very successful businesswoman. You’re also an active Republican.”
“Where did you get that?” Stewart asked. “I have always been a registered Democrat.”
Politico edited together some of the highlights, after the jump…
The Root has released its 2011 list of the most influential African Americans, and many TV news personalities are present. Leading the way are CNN anchors Soledad O’Brien and Don Lemon at #5 and #6. MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall represented her channel at #14, along with MSNBC regular Melissa Harris-Perry.
Still, the list had some curious omissions:
The situation in Tripoli, Libya continues to evolve every hour, and the result has been a series of compelling reports from foreign correspondents in-country.
Update: CNN’s Sara Sidner is outside of Gadhaffi’s compound, and is reporting that rebels have captured the building and are celebrating. She says she has seen files that the rebels have removed from the compound.
On “AC360″ last night, CNN’s Matthew Chance–who is trapped in the Rixos Hotel along with a handful of other foreign journalists–told Anderson Cooper about a strange appearance by Colonel Gadhaffi’s son Saif at the complex:
On MSNBC, Richard Engel has been live all morning on a rooftop overlooking Gadhaffi’s compound. After some stray bullets were fired not far from his location, he would put on a thick armored helmet for future live-shots:
The National Association of Black Journalists has a message for the TV news organizations: where is the diversity in your on-air ranks? The NABJ notes a lack of diversity in primetime on both network and cable, and says some anchors are ready for their shot:
