Still, the list had some curious omissions:

Foreign Correspondents, Both Trapped and Free, File Reports from Tripoli

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.

CNN and CNN International are going into co=production with Libya coverage, with Suzanne Malveaux and Michael Holmes anchoring.

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:

NABJ To TV News Organizations: Where is the Diversity?

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:

Russ Mitchell of CBS News, Lester Holt of NBC News, and CNN’s T. J. Holmes are weekend warriors who possess charisma, journalistic heft, and the handsome qualities to front a prime-time show.

President Obama Addresses Parliament

This morning, beginning at 10:50 AM, president Obama addressed Britain’s Parliament. CNN covered it is a co-production with CNNI anchored by Wolf Blitzer, Suzanne Malveaux, Richard Quest, Candy Crowley and Zain Verjee. The network started coverage about half an hour before the speech was slated to begin.

MSNBC and Fox opted not to have a dedicated preview leading up to the speech, but took it live once it began.

Obama’s speech to Parliament comes just a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress in Washington.

CNN/U.S., CNNi Plan Netanyahu Congressional Address Simulcast

While many CNN anchors remain in Joplin, MO, including John King, Ali Velshi, Anderson Cooper and T.J. Holmes, whose first TV job was in Jopin — the network is planning another CNN/U.S., CNNi simulcast of  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress this morning. Wolf Blitzer, Hala Gorani and Suzanne Malveaux anchor the special report beginning at 10:45amET with Dana Bash on Capitol Hill.

Howard Kurtz on Eliot Spitzer Omission: ‘Airbrushing History’

During an abbreviated “Reliable Sources” this morning due to the president’s remarks to the AIPAC conference, host Howard Kurtz took the time to criticize a decision by his own network — CNN.

As TVNewser first reported Tuesday, during a Suzanne Malveaux story on political sex scandals CNN’s own Eliot Spitzer was left out.

This morning Kurtz says leaving him out, is “airbrushing history.”

I’m sorry, if you’re going to do this kind of story you have to include Eliot Spitzer, even if he does now host a prime time CNN program. Otherwise you are airbrushing history.

Cable Coverage plans for Obama’s Middle East speech

President Obama is making his way to the State Department to deliver a highly-anticipated speech on Middle East affairs.

CNN’s Ed Henry Tweeted this picture of Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, brother of CBS News president David Rhodes, writing parts of the President’s speech at a Starbucks last Friday.

CNN is going big on the coverage with a CNN/U.S. and CNNI simulcast beginning at 11:30amET. Wolf Blitzer, Suzanne Malveaux and Hala Gorani anchor coverage with Fareed Zakaria in Egypt, and Gloria Borger, John King, Henry and Jill Dougherty in DC as well as multiple correspondents in several North African and Middle Eastern countries.

FNC’s Jon Scott and Jenna Lee anchor with Mike Emanuel at the White House. Wendell Goler will anchor a special report for any Fox affiliates who choose to take it.

NBC’s chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell anchors on MSNBC with a panel that includes Chuck Todd and Richard Engel.

Pres. Obama will only be doing one TV interview after the speech, and it’s not with an American broadcaster. BBC gets the sit-down with Obama at the White House. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be giving an interview to Katie Couric. This is Couric’s last day with the CBS Evening News. She’ll return to New York this afternoon to anchor her final broadcast.

What CNN’s story on political sex scandals left out: Eliot Spitzer

A TVNewser reader Tweeted at us today:

@tvnewser @HowardKurtz: Did CNN really exclude Spitzer from Malveaux package on Sex Scandals & Politics? Hmm..

The answer: yes it did.

Suzanne Malveaux‘s story, which aired at 2:30pmET, made mention or showed images of politicians ranging from John F. Kennedy to John Edwards; also former Governors James McGreevey and Mark Sanford, and former Sen. Larry Craig and current Sen. David Vitter, former Pres. Bill Clinton, and 2012 presidential candidate Newt Gingrich — their private indiscretions made very public. But no mention of Eliot Spitzer who resigned as Governor of New York after it was revealed he had patronized a prostitution service. Spitzer now hosts CNN’s 7pm show “In the Arena.” We’ve learned the producer/editor on the story, who use their own judgment on what to use and what not to use, chose not to include Spitzer in the story.

CNNPolitics.com has a slideshow of 17 recent political sex scandals. On it, Spitzer is #10.

What brought Sarah Palin and Matthew Morrison to the same event?

Sarah and Todd Palin along with Greta Van Susteren and Bill Press.

Last year at the annual pre-White House Correspondents Dinner Garden Brunch, Greta Van Susteren brought Kim Kardashian as her guest. This year, Greta looked beyond Hollywood and headed straight for Alaska bringing along Sarah Palin who really had brunch-goers turning their heads.

Tammy Haddad‘s annual brunch — which has outgrown its original location in Haddad and husband Ted Greenberg‘s backyard — was held this year at the historic Beall – Washington House, with its expansive yard, larger patios, and multiple watering holes. Haddad, a former MSNBC, CNN and NBC executive and producer shuttled the A-listers around the event — which is always a diverse mix of politicians, actors and journalists.

In addition to Palin, “Glee”‘s Matthew Morrison dropped in, as did Jesse Tyler Ferguson, of “Modern Family” and Chace Crawford of “Gossip Girl.”

We chatted up ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Chris Wallace of Fox News, Pete Williams of NBC News, and Ed Henry and Jessica Yellin of CNN and also spotted MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and Lawrence O’Donnell, FNC’s Bret Baier, CNN’s Dana Bash and Suzanne Malveaux (and twin sister Suzette) and NBC’s Savannah Guthrie.

Susan Axelrod, wife of Obama adviser David Axelrod, and Wendi Murdoch, wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch (both right, with Matthew Morrison) co-chaired the event which was a fundraiser for CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy).

Seeing Double: CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux Interviews Twin Sister On-Air

Viewers tuning into CNN around 12:30 PM ET could be forgiven for thinking they saw double. That’s because they sort of did.

CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux interviewed her twin sister Suzette Malveaux about the sex discrimination lawsuit facing mega-retailer Wal-Mart.

Suzette is a law professor at Catholic University, and something of an expert on class-action lawsuits, or as Suzanne explained in introducing her:
