The “Mueller Report” has prompted a bevy of new reports from the nation’s big TV-news outlets
CBS News plotted a Monday primetime special to cover the disclosure of a summary of the “Mueller Report” that had examined Russian influence on the 2016 U.S. presidential election and probed whether President Donald Trump or his campaign had any ties to it, while ABC News brought “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir to deliver its Sunday evening newscast and Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CNN all reworked parts of their Sunday anchor duties to explore the matter more in indepth.
Fox News Channel assigned Shannon Bream, who usually anchors its late-night weekday news coverage, to two separate hours of coverage on Sunday, with Bret Baier and Jon Scott also taking Sunday-night duties. Baier normally anchors a weekday report. MSNBC assigned Ari Melber, its chief legal correspondent, to early-evening anchor duties for coverage of the matter, a time period typically devoted to a repeat of “Meet the Press.” Melber is also a regular weekday presence. Wolf Blitzer has anchored many hours of breaking-news coverage for CNN, though he does not normally appear on air Sunday.
