> ABC’s Good Morning America was the first network morning show to report the Miers news, at 8:56am. Update: 1:50pm: CBS had an across-the-board special report at 8:57am, a tipster says. NBC followed at 9am.

> Who was first on cable?

> Wolf Blitzer has been anchoring coverage in The Situation Room…

> FNC is awfully fond of these three-pieces: they’ve been placing live video in a large box, file video of Miers in the upper right, and live shots of the Supreme Court and White House in the lower right.

> Update: 1:50pm: An e-mailer asks: “So Fox News was bashing ‘The Situation Room’ when it premiered, and now that they see that it has potential to be a good program, they are copying the shows idea by placing lots of video on the screen all at once?”
