In The Midst Of a Big News Week, Scoops Fly Under The Radar

The Cleveland kidnapping, the Boston bombing, The Benghazi hearing, the Jodi Arias verdict.

It is a big week for TV news, and as a result some big scoops are at risk of falling through the cracks.

This morning “CBS This Morning” had a pair of scoops: an interview with a Secret Service agent suspended after the now-infamous outing in Cartegena, Colombia (watch below). “CTM” also had a story about a $45 million bank heist executed by hackers.

NBC News meanwhile is touting an interview Ann Curry conducted with Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the prime Minister of Turkey, who insists that their intelligence indicates that Syria has used chemical weapons on its own people. The interview was conducted this afternoon, and it made news in Turkey. Whether it gets substantial coverage stateside remains to be seen.
