Trump vs. New York On The Morning Shows

NBC reality show host Donald Trump was back in the news this morning, as the Attorney General of the State of New York filed suit against the mogul claiming that his “Trump University” was a scam.

Pretty much every morning program covered the lawsuit, either in a pre-taped report, or in live interviews with AG Schneiderman or Trump himself.

On the network morning shows, “CBS This Morning” featured a report from Terrell Brown. ABC’s “Good Morning America” featured an interview with Schneiderman in a package, and then had Trump live on the phone to respond. NBC’s “Today” ran a package on the lawsuit, before having Trump on via phone to respond.

On cable news, “Fox & Friends” had Trump call in for his usual Monday segment, and used it to rail against Schneiderman. MSNBC discussed the lawsuit on “Morning Joe” and talked to Trump, with Richard Lui interviewing Schneiderman live in-studio during the 10 AM hour.

CNN’s “New Day” interviewed Schneiderman live in studio (and billed it as a “live exclusive,” although Schneiderman would appear live on MSNBC and CNBC not long after). “New Day” also had Trump on the phone.

Morning Shows Focus on Human Impact of Boston Bombings

Wall-to-wall coverage of the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon continues into the second day. ABC News, NBC News and CBS News all broadcast special reports for President Obama’s remarks from the White House press briefing room at 11:30amET. Lester Holt anchored from Boston on NBC, Anthony Mason anchored on CBS and Diane Sawyer anchored on ABC. The cable news networks also broadcast the President’s comments.

Faced with few overnight developments in the investigation of the bombings, the morning shows focused on the human impact of the explosions, interviewing eyewitnesses and victims that were at the marathon finish line.

On “Today,” Savannah Guthrie‘s interview with the President — which was taped before news of the bombings broke — was condensed due to NBC’s coverage from Boston. More of the interview will air later this week. In Boston, Matt Lauer did a number of interviews with victims of the attack, including one with a couple from a hospital room at Tufts Medical Center:

On “Good Morning America,” George Stephanopoulos anchored from Boston, joined by ABC’s Josh Elliott, Martha Raddatz and Brian Ross. Stephanopoulos interviewed a runner who crossed the finish line seconds before the first blast, and “GMA” used a spot-shadow to identify her in the video of the explosion: Read more

Expanded Evening Newscasts After Deadly Explosions Rock Boston Marathon

All three evening newscasts were expanded Monday after a pair of explosions killed at least two people at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The newscasts began shortly after President Obama addressed the nation from the White House press briefing room at 6:10pmET. NBC’s Brian Williams, ABC’s Diane Sawyer and CBS’ Scott Pelley had been anchoring coverage on their respective networks since the news broke shortly after 3pmET. ABC News and NBC News took brief breaks from their respective special reports just before the official start of the evening newscasts at 6:30pmET.

CBS News had Terrell Brown reporting from the scene and Don Dahler reporting from Massachusetts General Hospital. At the beginning of “Evening News,” correspondent John Miller took a few minutes to “clarify all these reports we’re seeing about a suspect in the media.” Saying he wanted to “proceed very carefully from here on out,” Miller reported that the person who was detained is a Saudi national who was seen running from the scene. “That may mean a lot, that may mean nothing at all,” Miller cautioned, noting that many people were running away from the blasts.

On NBC News, Williams was joined by Katy Tur in Boston, Chuck Todd from Washington D.C. and Pete Williams on the Boston police investigation. Williams interviewed an eyewitness, Serdar Ozturk, who saw the explosion from the finish line. “People’s faces instantly changed from smile to tears, and fear,” he told Williams. “People started running for their lives.”

ABC News had reports from senior national correspondent Jim Avila, senior Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas and Linsey Davis from the scene. Sawyer also checked in with Alex Perez in Chicago and Cecelia Vega in Los Angeles about security precautions in place in those two cities. “World News” ended with a montage of still photos from the scene. “We thank you so much for watching tonight,” Sawyer said. “Boston, as you know, is one of America’s great cities, filled with resilience and spirit. So on this day, when something terrible happened, we wanted to remind you of all those who rushed to help.”

All three networks have more extended coverage planned. Williams will anchor a special report at 10pmET on NBC, Terry Moran will anchor “Nightline” live at 12:35amET on ABC, and Pelley remained on the air with “Evening News” through 8pmET.

Gayle King: ‘I’m a big, big, big TV news junkie’

“CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King is the latest subject of The Atlantic Wire’s “What I Read.” King details her daily media diet and shares her thoughts on some of her favorite newscasters:

I have a TV in every single room of my house. I’m a big, big, big TV news junkie. I think it starts with my background in local news. I love the news. My DNA is very news driven and news oriented. I like Lori Stokes. I see her in the morning. She’s on ABC. At our place I like Terrell Brown. That’s my morning team that I tune into see. I like Scott Pelley for evening news because I’m a team player. I always like to see what we’re doing. I’m a big Anderson Cooper fan. I like to watch his show at night it’s really great to catch up on the day’s news with Anderson. He seems to cover all the bases, or certainly things I’m interested in, whether it’s a local story breaking news or national breaking news. I find I can get a lot out of his show. CNN is big for me, MSNBC is big, and during the campaign I was watching Fox because I was curious to see what they were saying.
