John McCain, R-Ariz., lies in state in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, Friday, Aug. 31, 2018, in Washington. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik) McCain, Franklin services challenge TV networks NEW YORK, N.Y. – Two beloved Americans, two services: one screen wasn’t always enough for television news networks following services for Sen. John McCain and Aretha Franklin on Friday.CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC each tried to keep viewers caught up on people paying respect to McCain as his body was lying in state in the U.S. Capitol, and the lengthy remembrance for the Queen of Soul in Detroit.A true collision was avoided when Franklin’s service started late, allowing the news networks to cover the Capitol ceremony in full. The broadcast networks ABC, CBS and NBC interrupted their regular programming to show speeches by government leaders, including Vice-President Mike Pence.McCain’s 106-year-old mother attended the Capitol ceremony honouring her son, although that caused one awkward moment for CNN. The network misidentified another woman in a wheelchair as her and later had to apologize.Throughout the day, the networks would check back to show a line of people behind a velvet rope, as they filed past McCain’s coffin.It was a different scene in Detroit, where parked rows of pink Cadillacs stood in Franklin’s honour.“The only thing really missing here is the red carpet,” said MSNBC’s Ron Mott.The sprawling ceremony was at times an unwinnable challenge for the networks. They weren’t willing to cede their airtime completely to the event, so it meant for some frustrating moments where correspondents talked over speakers and singers instead of letting them be heard, or missed them entirely.During a roof-rattling gospel performance by Audrey Dubois Harris, CNN covered it in full, MSNBC showed her face while reporters talked over the song and Fox was talking politics. At one point, Fox’s Chris Wallace was talking about President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions while a small box in the corner showed Chaka Khan singing in Detroit; eventually Wallace was cut short to see the rest of her performance.MSNBC cut to guests talking about Kahn’s performance when it seemed like it was over — only to have her return for a reprise. When singer Ron Isley gave a quiet, rambling talk before singing, you could almost feel the calculations of TV producers wondering whether to stick with him.Everyone paused, however, to cover speeches by former President Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson.After Clinton was done, Fox’s Chris Stirewalt said that he was “a shadow of the man that we remember from 25 or 30 years ago.“Time is passing by,” he said. “This is a moment of reflection for the country about what we’re losing and the lessons learned along the way.”

NewsRegional Suriname amnesty debate stalls by: – March 26, 2012 Share Share Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Suriname president, Desi BoutersePARAMARIBO, Suriname — A debate in the Surinamese parliament on Friday to discuss a proposed bill that may eventually end a murder trial against President Desi Bouterse was postponed indefinitely since there was no quorum to hold the meeting. Six coalition MPs submitted a bill to the National Assembly last Monday to amend the Amnesty Law 1989 in such a way that it would cover the period April 1982 — August 1992. This may ultimately mean that the ongoing but slow-moving trial against Bouterse as the main suspect would come to an end without a verdict. The bill would provide amnesty for Bouterse and his loyalists for all crimes committed between April 1, 1980 and August 19, 1992.Bouterse, Suriname’s former army chief and government leader from 1980 to 1987, together with over 20 co-defendants, is standing trial for the murder of 15 opponents of his then military government on December 8, 1982 in Fort Zeelandia, the then military headquarters in the capital. The amnesty move came just two weeks after co-defendant Ruben Rozendaal told the court that Bouterse was at the scene when the 15 men were brutally tortured and subsequently shot and killed. Bouterse came to power on February 25, 1980, when he led a successful military coup against the democratically elected Arron-administration.Around 1,000 Bouterse-supporters came to Independent Square next to the parliament on Friday to give moral support to Bouterse and his coalition MPs. During a surprise appearance the president told the gathering that he has nothing to do with the proposed bill. “If I wanted amnesty, we would have proposed this bill right after we came into office in 2010,” he told his supporters, claiming that Rozendaal, a former army lieutenant, was a “liar” and “traitor”. The bill requires a simple majority for approval in the 51-seat parliament. Several years ago Bouterse publicly claimed “political responsibility” for the murders, since he was government and army leader at that time, but denied killing anybody.Meanwhile, relatives of the victims, religious organizations, opposition in parliament, and local human rights organizations have called for rejection of the proposal. In an invited comment former president and currently a member of parliament, Ronald Venetiaan, said that the bill is “a blatant involvement in the trial”. He further noted, that the Amnesty Act 1989 was part of the peace and reconciliation process to bring an end to the internal armed conflicts from 1985-1992. “In December ’82 there was no armed conflict.”He indicated that the indictable offences that are covered by the Amnesty Law 1989 are no comparison to the extra-judicial killings of December 1982. Among others, the amnesty in 1989 covered crimes such as armed robbery, rape, arson, battery and killings during firefights between the combatants. “In December ‘82 it was different. People have been killed while in custody. People were taken from their home and while in custody tortured and subsequently shot and killed,” said Venetiaan.
