A Busy Friday for Senator John McCain

As potential U.S. action in Iraq drew saturation coverage on TV news today, Senator John McCain lent his voice.

The Arizona Senator, who has urged President Obama to “get a new national security team,” appeared on cable news five times across MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN.

He started on “Morning Joe” and “New Day” this morning, first telling an MSNBC panel we should’ve left stabilizing forces in Iraq similar to Japan, Germany, Korea, and Bosnia. Speaking with Chris Cuomo, McCain got specific on Iraq: “Airstrikes are something to be considered.”

Next, he appeared on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” in a pre-recorded interview. “I think I’d put David Petraeus on a plane to Baghdad right now to sort all of this out,” he told Mitchell.

On-set in New York, McCain joined Neil Cavuto on “Your World” in the 4pmET hour following an Army press conference updating the condition of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is now back in the U.S. undergoing treatment. “Right now, he probably deserves a lot of our patience,” McCain said.

McCain rounded out the day back on CNN, appearing on “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” weighing in on which members of the president’s national security team need to go. “The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, number one, the National Security Adviser [Susan Rice], number two…who should probably spend time with her family on Sundays,” he said.

Pres. Obama: ‘We Will Not Be Sending U.S. Troops Back Into Combat in Iraq’

President Obama delivered a statement on Iraq from the South Lawn of the White House shortly before noon. The broadcast and cable networks all provided live coverage of his remarks on the increased violence in the region.

On NBC, David Gregory anchored from Washington with Peter Alexander at the White House and Richard Engel in Iraq. David Muir anchored for ABC, joined by Terry Moran in Northern Iraq. CBS’ special report was anchored by Scott Pelley in New York with Major Garrett at the White House.

As for the cable networks: Wolf Blitzer anchored on CNN, with Arwa Damon in Iraq. Eric Shawn and Uma Pemmaraju anchored on Fox News, joined by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier from Washington. On MSNBC, Tamron Hall anchored with Chuck Todd contributing.

Obama said he is weighing the options for U.S. military support in Iraq, but ruled out using ground forces in the conflict. “We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq, but I have asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options,” he said.

Snuggie, Jealousy, and a Weed Limousine Invite: CNN’s Anderson Cooper Birthday Tribute

Anderson BirthdayJudging by last night’s on-air tribute for Anderson Cooper‘s 47th birthday, one can only wonder what CNN will do in a few years for the big 5-0.

Just a few seconds into Cooper delivering a typical “Ridiculist” segment, Wolf Blitzer popped up on screen, beginning a video montage of CNN personalities wishing Cooper a happy birthday.

Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin pointed out the lack of buzz around his birthday two weeks ago. “Did I get an on-air tribute from Wolf Blitzer? I don’t think so…what is the big deal, is this kindergarten? Everyone has a birthday.”

Randi Kaye, whose reporting for “AC360″ left her slightly high earlier this year, had an interesting gift idea. “I heard about these really cool limo tours in Denver, in Colorado. Really cool, if you know what I mean,” Kaye said, referencing a limousine ride she took with “ganjapreneurs” smoking marijuana.

And John Berman donned his “AC360″ snuggie. “When you fill in for Anderson, they actually give you one of these AC360 snuggies. My understanding is he’s worn every one of them, so before you get it, Anderson has to wear it…I can smell him in it.”

The star-studded tribute after the jump.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, Carol Costello Move to NYC

costello baldwinTwo CNN anchors are making the move from Atlanta to New York this summer. Beginning in August, Brooke Baldwin and Carol Costello will anchor their respective hours of “CNN Newsroom” from NYC. Costello anchors “Newsroom” from 9-11amET and Baldwin helms the 2-4pmET hours.

“Carol Costello and Brooke Baldwin will move to New York to anchor their weekday CNN Newsroom shows, beginning in August. There will be no other changes to those shows’ production team,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser. “Atlanta is, and always will be, a critical part of CNN Worldwide’s operations. It remains home to much of our programming and content, including the production for many of our shows, CNN’s worldwide newsgathering operations, CNN Digital, CNN International, CNN en Espanol, HLN and Newsource.”

Other CNN shows that are anchored from New York but produced in Atlanta: “CNN Newsroom” with Don Lemon” and “Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield. Wolf Blizter‘s 1pmET “Wolf” is produced in Atlanta but anchored in DC. A CNN source tells us having the anchors in New York gives them more on-set guest opportunities.

The shift means all of CNN’s weekday programs will be anchored from New York or DC. When Jeff Zucker took over as CNN Worldwide president, he said: ““Atlanta will continue to be the home for CNN and continue to be the backbone of CNN.”

Behind the Scenes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

For the White House Correspondents’ Association, it’s a night to celebrate the free press. For Joel McHale, it’s a night where “a guy like me can stand before the president, the press and Patrick Duffy, and tell jokes without severe repercussions.” And for TVNewser, it’s a night where the people we cover all year — executives, producers, reporters and anchors from every major network — are all together in the same room: the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which we attended this year as a guest of ABC News.

Our night began outside the entrance to the ballroom at the Washington Hilton, where we overheard now-NBC News correspdonent Cynthia McFadden ask for directions to the ABC News party. We followed her in, and a few minutes later we were chatting with Diane Sawyer, who told us she always looks forward to the Correspondents’ Dinner, and James Goldston, who said he was pleased with his first few weeks as ABC News president. In the back of the room, Fox News anchors Ainsley Earhardt and Kimberly Guilfoyle posed for a picture with Sofia Vergara; Earhardt told us afterwards that she’s “having a blast” anchoring “Fox & Friends First,” despite the crazy hours. We spotted Katie Couric chatting with former Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his daughter, Abby Huntsman, who is a co-host of MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”

Wolf Blitzer made the rounds with Diane Lane. We saw NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and ABC’s Lara Spencer snap a picture with Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal.” We spent a few minutes with Rebecca Jarvis, and chatted with Alicia Menendez about her participation in the TVNewser Show as well as her Twitter habit.

On the way into the ballroom, we spotted Guthrie and her husband, Mike Feldman, chatting with Bret Baier and his wife Amy. We saw Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, chatting with fans. Simpson’s ex, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, was also at the WHCD as a guest of Fox News. Read more

Bret Baier: ‘After I Saw that, I Said ‘We Are Dropping the Ball on that Coverage’

BaierTVSBret Baier is taking a cue from John Oliver.

The Fox News “Special Report” host was watching Oliver’s inaugural show on HBO last Sunday when it hit him that the world’s biggest election — where up to 800 million people in India will be voting — is getting almost no coverage in the U.S. “After I saw that, I said ‘we are dropping the ball on that coverage,’ Baier told us at the TVNewser Show on Tuesday. His team is now working on a story about the election which wraps up May 12.

Baier says shows like Oliver’s as well as “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” “can really penetrate on news stories.”

We interviewed Baier for about 20 minutes following his keynote speech. We discussed everything from the 2014 and 2016 elections, to how he engages with “the most fervent critics of Fox News,” and the current state of the media’s relationship with the White House: “I think there is a sense that the president feels like he doesn’t get enough good treatment in a media that has, for the most part, turned a little bit on this White House, in policy and substance.”

I began by asking Baier what he thought about the president’s approval rating, which an ABC News/Washington Post poll released earlier that morning showed it had dropped to 41%.
