NewsHour adds war coverage Washington Post News divisions big and small continue to adjust to the changes prompted by the Persian Gulf war. PBSs MacNeil-Lehrer NewsHour started airing a regular one-hour edition on Saturday at 5 p.m., anchored by Judy Woodruff. The past two weekends, because of the outbreak of the war in the gulf, the PBS program has been on the air Saturdays and on one Sunday. The Woodruff-anchored program will apparently be a regular Saturday feature for the duration. Speaking of the PBS news program, the sixth annual Congressional Staff Survey, conducted by the Fleishman-Hillard Inc.
public relations firm, has named the NewsHour the most credible of the network evening news programs. A survey of senior aides in 351 congressional offices showed 27 percent named the NewsHour, 22 percent ABC World News Tonight, 19 percent "CNN World News Today, 13 percent NBC Nightly News and 12 percent CBS Evening News. Another 8 percent named other programs Ratings points are the percent of 92,1 million TV households; shares are the percent of households with sets on. (S) Special This 40-minute CBS-Fox video is listed at $19.98 but will be marketed on the back of several million boxes of Wheaties in March, April and May with $2.50 rebate offers for both the new Jordan video and Come Fly With Me. "Playground is the first sports video to combine original footage with a story line, action highlights and an exclusive soundtrack.
The original footage and story line feature Jordan and Tyrin Turner, who appeared in Janet Jacksons Rhythm Nation video. Turner plays a kid who has been cut from his high school basketball team and has doubts about trying again. Jordan encounters him on the playground and tells him how Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team. The playground story line is skillfully spliced with action shots of Jordans practicing as he preaches, unleashing an awesome mix of great shots and masterful dunks, blocked shots and steals, dishing off to open players when double-teamed. Turner makes the team the second time around, and a music video evolves with Jordan joining full force in the videos exclusive theme song, "Anything Possible.
Jordan does not embarrass himself as a singer or dancer in this delightful windup; he seems to have had fun doing it and makes it fun to watch. John Gaffney, CBS-Fox director of sports marketing, rated Jordans performance somewhere between Fred Astaire and M.C. Hammer. Actually, Jordan mixes in some nifty moves and fancy steps, ad-libbing a glide here and there to cover his pride. No matter.
In the end, the show is a three-pointer at the buzzer.
