Feb. 14, 2013, will go down in history as the first day Jeff Zucker’s dynamic new CNN really covered a breaking news story, like a sewage-soaked Carnival cruise blanket. Let’s take a look at how much broadcast time CNN dedicated to what will be remembered by many as Jeff Zucker’s Gulf War.
At 5 a.m., it began.
The “Situation Room,” CNN’s premiere political show, dives in at 4 p.m.
Erin Burnett takes over at 7 p.m.
Surprisingly, Anderson Cooper is nowhere to be found during this huge day for CNN. New guy Chris Cuomo answers the call.
Donny Duetsch, in for Piers Morgan, gets his chance to impress Zucker with his ability to handle such a massive story.
As CNN heads into the home stretch, it keeps pace with Duetch’s wall-to-wall coverage.
