With the late breaking news of Brian Williams receiving a 6-month unpaid suspension from NBC and Jon Stewart announcing he’s leaving Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” all three evening newscasts updated their west coast editions.
The Stewart news broke just before 7pm on the East Coast, while the Williams news broke about 50 minutes later.
ABC’s “World News Tonight with David Muir” updated with the Williams news, reporting a story 13 minutes into the west coast edition. Neither “NBC Nightly News” nor the “CBS Evening News” reported the Williams story. But, in the last 10 minutes of their programs, all three reported on Stewart leaving “The Daily Show.” ABC even teased it, twice.
