ABC, CBS News to Carry James Comey Senate Testimony Live

ABC and CBS will break into their daytime programming on Thursday to cover James Comey’s appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos will anchor the network’s coverage, while “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Norah O’Donnell, Gayle King and Charlie Rose will anchor coverage for that network. Rose, King and O’Donnell will be joined in New York by “Face the Nation” anchor and chief Washington correspondent John Dickerson and chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford. The former FBI Director’s testimony is set to begin at 10 a.m. ET.

NBC News has yet to confirm whether or not they will carry the hearing live.

3. My secret shame...

 

...when Nixon stood at the top of the stairs of the plane I was mad as hell. PISSED. And tearing up. They didn't have to treat him like that.

I know. I know. I just wanted to cry looking at him.

14. Welcome to DU, Jacquette!

We were all celebrating that day. Everybody I knew was reveling, with some version of "we FINALLY GOT that bastard!"

Amazing, isn't it, how later presidents actually wound up making Nixon look good?

One thing that he did that I bet other politicians took VERY close note of: remember how he smiled, remained so poised, stood at the door of Marine One and threw out his arms, making the victory sign with his fingers, and beaming as though he'd just won the lottery? Well, lo these many years later, THAT is the takeaway. You don't get the angst, the anguish, the public humiliation. You don't get the sense of him feeling or looking like a man utterly defeated. He projected the image of a winner. Makes me think of the comments about that asshole Tom DeLay's mug shot after he got into serious legal trouble, and convicted of criminal charges of conspiracy. He looked straight into the camera and smiled this big smile as though he was about to go walk his daughter down the aisle or something. And THAT'S the visual you're left with. You don't get to see him looking down 'n' out (which would have been well-deserved in his case). Years later, you'll see that photo and only note the confident-looking smiling face, not the guy who would be facing a possible prison sentence! Recognizing that as an actual mug shot is not even in the vibe of it.

Sneaky slick little trick there, 'eh?

5. I did. At first I thought it was like a dog chasing his tail.

A break-in at the Watergate DNC Hdqtrs - very interesting I thought. Never thought that it would lead to tricky Dick's resignation. After that, I started paying more attention to politics and what our elected officials were doing.

7. I did and welcome to DU

I was hugely pregnant the Summer of '73 and my 3 year old took very long afternoon naps so I got to watch the hearings every afternoon.

9. I was just going to say,

"shades of Watergate!" I was 19, and my Mom and I watched constantly. And this is, most definitely, FAR worse than Watergate.

13. Welcome to DU, bdtrppr6!

I watched the hearings. I was in college. Home for the summer. Couldn't peel myself away from the TV in the family room. Transfixed! I didn't understand all the fine points, but I knew even back then that this was history I was witnessing. That, and following the reportage of Woodward and Bernstein was what made me want to get into the news biz. But then again, everybody I knew in school wanted to do that. Some of us females also fancied ourselves as the new Barbara Walters. I remember thinking - imagine doing THAT for a living!
