A very expensive Newseum

Time Warner World News Gallery,
NEWSEUM, Washington DC

A new museum dedicated to news gathering opening in Washington yesterday, and of course got a lot of coverage from the media. Among the incredible exhibits included are a gallery dedicated to coverage of 9/11 (which includes the top 30 feet of the broadcast tower that once stood atop the WTC), a gallery dedicated to journalists who have lost their lives while covering news events, an interactive newsroom where visitors can prepare a news broadcast themselves, and the Time-Warner World News Gallery, which shows the different levels of press freedom around the world.

Thursday, John Roberts spoke with the curator of the Newseum on American Morning:

It really looks and sounds amazing. Check out more at their online site. I hope it's a big success, although I think it may be a few years (decades? centuries?!) before they recoup that initial investment!

Also happening at the Newseum on Thursday, General David Petraeus and US Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker held interviews with the press, including CNN's Michael Ware. Snippets of the interview were shown throughout the day, although a promised airing of the full interview on AC360 was truncated due to breaking news. (CNN has posted a 15-minute clip on CNN.com, and is supposed to post it all, you know I have my nose pressed to the glass waiting to see it...)

CNN's O'Brien To Appear at Same Event as Rev. Wright
Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, has garnered much media attention for his contentious comments seen on YouTube and elsewhere. Now he'll be appearing with a member of the media at a Detroit NAACP event.

Wright will give the keynote address at the 53rd Annual Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner on April 27. CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien will serve as a special guest announcer for the dinner.

A special preview of O'Brien's CNN documentary, "Blacks in America," will be shown at the event.
You can read the entire press release from the Detroit NAACP here.

Don't forget the special that John King is hosting tonight. Here's the still ad running for it:

Where in the World...?

Saturday, Randi Kaye was in El Dorado, Texas; Suzanne Malveaux in Washington, DC. Sunday, Candy Crowley was also in DC.

Monday, Nic Robertson reported from Baghdad. Campbell Brown hosted "Anderson Cooper 360" through Thursday. (One does wonder whether, with Michael Ware loose in the States, Anderson went into the Witness Protection program; there is some payback due to be delivered for the on-air revelation of the Aussie's birthday last month...)

Tuesday, Michael Ware and Dana Bash were in Washington, DC. John King was in Philadelphia.

Wednesday, Suzanne reported from New York City and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Candy from South Bend and Lafayette, Indiana. Dana Bash was in New York City.

Friday, TJ Holmes was in Greensboro, North Carolina; Suzanne in Philadelphia; Candy in Terre Haute, Indiana; Dana in DC. And Erica Hill finally hosted "AC360"!

That's it for me today -- enjoy your weekend!
