There was no consensus on overseas news. CBS did not assign a single reporter to foreign policy or international developments. NBC was the only network to cover the political crisis in Pakistan, where police attacked protestors in Islamabad after President Pervez Musharraf ordered the arrest of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. NBC bureau chief Carol Grisanti told Andrea Mitchell that the police "lost control" and tear-gassed the crowd indiscriminately. They then vandalized the studios of GEO-TV, halting the station's transmission of its exclusive coverage of the protests. Mitchell noted that the Bush Administration has "strong links" to Musharraf, whose "iron-fisted reign is facing its greatest challenge yet."
