Fox News and MSNBC both carried a high speed pursuit in South Florida around NoonET. Both used the signal from Fox affiliate WSVN (which counts among its alumni Shepard Smith, Robin Meade, Rick Sanchez and┬áMike Tobin). NBC, which has an owned & operated station in South Florida, WTVJ, went with the WSVN signal. An insider says WSVN “graciously┬ámade the feed available” to MSNBC.

CNN still has a policy of not carrying car chases, leaving that to sister network HLN. WSVN is a CNN affiliate which is why HLN also carried the signal from that station. The pursuit wrapped up after the suspects, implicated in a bank robbery,  jumped out of the car, into some woods and then into a neighborhood where police caught up with them. They were taken into custody without incident.
