CBS News will see its local stations and streaming service team up for an investigative series that will appear across the network’s platforms. In what will be a first for the company, the series “Crime Without Punishment” is led by correspondent Jim Axelrod.

Reports will appear on the CBS Evening News, CBS News Streaming, local newscasts across the country, and other CBS platforms. The series will include national and regional reporting from both CBS News and local CBS journalists, focusing on an unusual sensation. 

“Police are closing a smaller share of murder cases than at any other time in American history,” the network stated, per The Hollywood Reporter

The series “looks at the sobering reality of a justice system in crisis, puts faces to the staggering statistics, and examines why the once sacrosanct promise of no murder going unsolved is now routinely being broken — with solve rates at a 50-year low.”

Furthermore, the series is the first significant collaborative investigation between the national team and CBS’ local journalists. The company is also integrating the stations and the national news division, which CBS has prioritized. 

“This is what CBS News and Stations was built for,” Wendy McMahon, co-president of CBS News and Stations. “Collaborative investigations like these push us to produce something that is distinctive and impactful.”

“These trends we’re looking at are not just a national headline. The issue of crime without justice or punishment affects local communities deeply. We have an opportunity to connect the dots for our audiences and help them understand this is a systemic and layered issue.”

CBS News Streaming is also debuting a 30-minute CBS Reports documentary connected to the series on June 30.

Chris Wallace joined CNN’s “At This Hour” to discuss a New York Times article suggesting that President Joe Biden shouldn’t run again. 

According to a transcript published on Breitbart, Wallace said Democrats don’t want Biden to run again in 2024 because of his age. 

“I think 75%of Democrats say they would like to see another Democratic nominee for president in 2024,” said Biden. 

Wallace said he’s witnessed farewells plenty of times, especially in the media, which he referred to as the gold watch sent off. 

“Look; obviously, the success after a lot of stalemate, the success of the last month or so by Joe Biden is impressive, and it will change the narrative,” Wallace said. “We will be talking about everything he has accomplished.” 

‘You know what, I’m excited by the idea of a guy who on next inauguration day would be 82 running for election again,’ I’m not so sure about that,” he added.

John Oliver Takes Dig at Parent Owner Warner Bros. Discovery

Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav was also a leading force in canceling CNN’s venture into the streaming wars

Warner Bros. Discovery has made recent headlines for its decisions regarding HBO Max and canceling in-production films, including DC’s “Batgirl,” to get future tax write-offs.

During a segment discussing Monkeypox on Sunday, HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver decided to take a shot at their new parent company for its recent decisions.

“We let the vaccine sit unused on a shelf in our reserves like an expired Chobani or a $90 million movie on HBO Max,” Oliver said, referring to the “Batgirl” film. 

“By the way, hi there, new business daddy! Seems like you’re doing a really great job. I do get the vague sense that you’re burning down my network for the insurance money, but I’m sure that will all pass.”

Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav was also a leading force in canceling CNN’s venture into the streaming wars, pulling the plug on CNN+ less than a month after the service launched. 

“On CNN+, there was no message it was a business decision,” Zaslav told CNBC in May. “We looked at it and we looked at the data, the number of users they had spent an enormous amount of money trying to sell an independent product. 

“The subscribers weren’t there, the users weren’t there. We looked at it together. We had a chance to look at all the data and when we looked at the data, it was, the business wasn’t there.”
