CBS Will Pre-Empt Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

https://deadline.com/2019/11/cbs-news-impeachment-hearing-1202781213/?fbclid=IwAR204eI8OG7aq4M4PJVArvdSvC3pLpCHj1yrgGmhxdPKOAZLtsbw_7FIzQ4


CBS Will Pre-Empt Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage
By Ted Johnson
November 8, 2019 8:06am


CBS is the first U.S. broadcast network to announce its plans to pre-empt regular daytime programming for coverage of next week’s first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry. All of the broadcast networks are expected to join cable news channels and news streaming services to cover the hearings, which will start Wednesday with the testimony of Bill Taylor, the top diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department.

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell will lead coverage of the hearing and another one scheduled for November 15, with testimony from Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. CBS Evening News also will originate from Washington on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week. The newscast is expected to move to Washington permanently by the end of the year.

CBS also said that it will provide coverage on CBSN, its streaming service, along with coverage on CBS News Radio and CBS Newspath. CBS This Morning also will feature interviews and analysis, with co-hosts Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil joined by 60 Minutes correspondent John Dickerson with historical perspective.

Others contributing to the network coverage include Face the Nation moderator and senior foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan, chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett, chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes, political correspondent Ed O’Keefe and White House correspondent Paula Reid. Contributors Jonathan Turley and Kim Wehle will provide analysis.

CBS is a network, not a cable channel and it reaches a huge amount of people. Hopefully that will have a big effect on the public.

43. I found the article

"PBS will broadcast the Trump hearings live starting Nov. 13, with analysis from its new NewsHour team. As always stations make their own programming decisions, but the coverage will be available to affiliates. The hearings will then be available on demand on all PBS digital platforms including pbs.org and the PBS video app, which is available on Apple TV, Roku and smart TVs. The hearings will also air in primetime on WORLD, the digital channel carried by 157 public television stations (covering 64.4% of US TV households). A PBS NewsHour and Amanpour & Company will also have "extensive coverage" of the hearings."

Hope this helps!

23. I remember during Watergate being annoyed that my usual soap operas were


Pre-empted. I was in my early 20s, had a young child and didn’t realize the seriousness of the situation until I started watching the proceedings. THEN it dawned on me that I was watching something historic. I was glued to the TV (a small B & W on an antenna) whenever they were showing it. I remember seeing John Dean testify and his lovely wife with her platinum blonde hair pulled back in a neat bun. So my soap operas took a back seat to history. I am hoping that the same thing will happen this time. Once people see the proceedings and understand the historic nature, I’m hoping they’ll pay close attention and will know why tRump must go.

25. I'm afraid that people will only listen to the pundits.

I do remember the Watergate hearings, which occurred before cable news. At that time, we heard the reporters actually "reporting", and not media-types pontificating on what it all meant.

The pundits, or as I like to call them, the "opinionators" are a far cry from reporters who report, without their personal or corporate-paid, thoughts.

38. That could happen. But --


I think people are curious to hear from these witnesses with first hand knowledge. That includes people like me (and others here at DU) who have followed the bouncing ball on this scandal for months — some of us for years! You know many of us have an ability to detect lies from truth based on many factors — body language, micro expressions, choice of words, eye movements — I think actually seeing and hearing their testimony will be very instructive to us. We can decide for ourselves if someone is being truthful or deceptive.

The body of evidence is building brick by brick and before this is over, like in Watergate, the world will know this nasty tale and who is responsible. tRump better hope he has good secret service protection because if some of his loyal subjects discover how badly they’ve been duped (and some of them will) they’ll not be very pleased to learn how he made chumps out of them. I know some will go down with his sinking ship, but some will learn a bitter lesson. If tRump thinks he is hated now, just wait until his base gets wise.

40. Maybe all of us should make sure we mention it in passing to everyone we talk to.

Such as saying, "I'll be busy watching the impeachment hearings" if someone asks what we're doing next week. Just drop it casually so that people know there are a lot of us out here who will be watching. They may think, "hmmm...this must be important".

64. Me, too, True Blue.


I lived in Ft. Worth, Tx at the time. I was in the 10th grade when the PA system came on during biology class with a static crackled announcement that JFK had been shot. (Few knew at that moment he was dead.) My teacher ran outside of the room and talked in hushed tones to another teacher. Eventually another announcement was made that he had died. And in that moment everything changed. As you said, a collective mourning began. A sadness enveloped the nation and touched many around the world. Little did we know at the time, we’d experience the shock and sadness of sudden death of more leaders familiar to all of us.

Those deaths were a very grim reminder that life is fragile and often unpredictable. So many of us remember exactly where we were when JFK died and how we felt. It is indelibly etched in our mind’s view of history. I imagine it changed many of us forever who meet in places like this and share our stories and memories.
