Early Sunday Show Listings

An early sneak peek at this week’s Sunday show listings…

• NBC’s “Meet the Press”: As we reported yesterday, former President Bill Clinton and NY Governor David Paterson

• ABC’s “This Week”: Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Senator John McCain (R-AZ)

• CNN’s “State of the Union”: Also has Gates, plus CNN’s Mary Matalin and James Carville will join John King for “Sound of Sunday”

• And Roland Martin will make his Sunday show debut this week on TV One. “Washington Watch” airs at 11am and “will focus on issues of importance to African Americans through discussions with officials from the White House and Congress, other policymakers who represent communities with significant black populations, journalists, commentators, and policy experts.” We’ll have a Q&A with Martin on FBDC tomorrow.

Sunday Show Wrap-Up: Obama-Rama

Embedded video from CNN Video

• Above, on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” yesterday, Howard Kurtz discussed, among other topics, President Obama’s five-Sunday-show-blitz with WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza, conservative commentator Amy Holmes and St. Petersburg TimesEric Deggans.

• More from Kurtz in WaPo‘s Media Notes “Saturation Sunday“: “”Anytime is a good time to interview the president,” says “Meet the Press” host David Gregory. “We’re here to get news,” says “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer. But sharing the same guest — even the world’s top newsmaker — makes it harder for them to distinguish their programs.”

Baltimore Sun‘s David Zurawik‘s Z on TV “President Obama: A weak Sunday TV blitz

NYT‘s Alessandra Stanley‘s The TV Watch “For President, Five Programs, One Message

NYPost‘s Charles HurtOn-the-air prez seems like endless ‘infomercial’“: “During his first eight months in office, President Obama has sat down for three times as many television interviews as his most recent two predecessors combined.”

• Mediaite: “How Rude! President Obama’s Favorite Four-Letter Word To Describe The Media

• Also from Mediaite: “Obama’s Magical Media Tour: Who Had The Best Interview?” (Spoiler: Steve Krakauer says CNN’s John King.)

WSJ‘s Peggy Noonan called President Obama’s Sunday show blitz “boorish” in a roundtable discussion on ABC’s “This Week.” “He’s doing it because he can,” the former speechwriter told host George Stephanopoulos. “The media environment allows a modern leader to be something subtly damaging, and that is boorish. They get their face in your face every day all the time. It’s boorish and it makes people not lean toward you but lean away from you, no matter what the merits of the issue.” (h/t HuffPost)

• A few lighter moments on the Sunday talk show circuit… just before Tom DeLay‘s debut tonight on “Dancing with the Stars,” Gregory asked House Minority Leader John Boehner whether he has a future on that show. Boehner replied, “I’ll pass.” And on CNN, “State of the Union” anchor King played a clip of James Carville getting spoofed on Thursday’s SNL. Weekend Update called the CNN Democratic strategist “skeletor,” and his wife, CNN Republican strategist Mary Matalin came to his defense- “I love this look.”

• Also, this Sunday CNN aired a response to Fox News’ print ad in newspapers Friday. CNN’s response ad says “Fox News, Distorting not Reporting.” Check out Fox News’ print ad and CNN’s video ad (via Media Matters) after the jump…

NEWSPAPERS

NYT ran an op-ed Sunday by President Obama and has actually decided not to charge syndication clients who want to run the piece after some complaints from editorial page editors.

TV

Fox News was the second most-watched basic cable channel in primetime last week, only behind USA. FNC was 5th overall in Total Day viewership. MSNBC was 24th in primetime and 32nd in Total Day. CNN ranked 26th in prime and 23rd in Total Day. And Glenn Beck, in particular, had a great week, ratings-wise.

Also, a good week for MSNBC in primetime.

Gail Shister profiles CNN’s Michael Ware for TVNewser.

RADIO

NPR has selected the three budding journos who will participate in a year-long intensive training and reporting program at NPR and member stations- congrats to Carolyn Beeler, Habiba Nosheen and Sam Sanders. More at FishbowlNY.

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Earlier this week former deputy press secretary to Presidents Nixon and Ford Jerry Warren said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs can be “too jovial about serious things.” Now, the Daily Beast’s Lee Siegel calls Gibbs “smug.” Poor guy can’t win.

From Esquire: How to Field Questions Like the President.

NEWS NOTES

Happy Birthday to CNN’s Mark Preston. What we know and what we’re reading this Tuesday morning…

NEWSPAPERS | TV | MAGAZINES | NEWS NOTES | JOBS

NEWSPAPERS

Boston Globe: The Boston Globe‘s largest union, which represents nearly 700 editorial, advertising and business office workers, overwhelmingly approved a package of $10 million in wage and benefit cuts last night, ending more than three months of tense bargaining and brinksmanship.

From WaPo managing editors Liz Spayd and Raju Narisetti‘s online chat yesterday (h/t Poynter). “Paid wall for the Web site?: There’s a lot of chatter on the Web about moving newspaper’s Web content behind a paid wall. Any chance of that happening at WaPo? Spayd and Narisetti: Nothing imminent though we are constantly evaluating ways to get paid for our content.”

TV

Walter Cronkite‘s voice will stay as the intro to the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

Because of Pres. Obama’s news conference Wednesday night, CNN is shifting the schedule for the first night of “Black in America 2.” On Wednesday, it will air at 9pmET, but will be back on at 8pmET on Thursday.

Black Retort critiques CNN’s “Black in America” here.

CNN’s Campbell Brown spoke about the state of journalism in a recent interview, saying her network is the only one on cable “doing journalism.” Check out the clip on HuffPost.

CNBC’s Trish Regan announced on the air yesterday that she is expecting twins.

MAGAZINES

Newsweek has yet to see a bump from the redesigned mag.

NEWS NOTES

The Examiner‘s JP Freire‘s take on NJ‘s newly launched 3121, an online networking tool designed exclusively for all congressional members and staff.

Politico on Mary Matalin‘s lesser known role in DC… editor-in-chief at Threshold Editions.

Eight questions from the Economist for Slate’s Jacob Weisberg, including: “In the great shake-up that is now occurring in the media do you think anything of value will be lost?” His answer: “There’s a great deal at risk. The financial basis of the leading organisations that perform large-scale systemic news reporting has collapsed, and it’s not clear what, if anything, will replace it. Certain categories of coverage—foreign, local, investigative—don’t look economically viable on a for-profit basis at the moment. This is a political and societal problem as well as a business one because of the vital role that the kind of journalism traditionally performed by newspapers plays in democracy. We need to find new hybrid models to support it.”
