Last week's #1 story--the ouster of those eight US Attorneys by the Justice Department--received q-&-a follow-ups on CBS and ABC but no mention at all on NBC. None of the networks filed a taped package. ABC's Jan Crawford Greenburg focused on the looming Constitutional "showdown for a separation of powers battle" between the White House and investigators on the Senate Judiciary Committee. "Executive privilege is not even in the Constitution,' she pointed out, even though the Supreme Court agrees that "a President does have the right to confidential advice." CBS' Bob Schieffer saw a Hurricane-Katrina-style crisis: "Clearly political games were being played and worse, for the administration, it leaves the impression of incompetence--that nobody is running the store…Has the Justice Department become the new FEMA?"
