Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall appeared at the 4th annual Patriot Awards last week to accept an award for his courage and commitment to newsgathering. 

In March, Hall was injured in a Russian artillery attack in Kyiv, Ukraine. Pierre Zakrzewski and local Ukrainian producer Oleksandra Kuvshynova were killed in the attack. 

The award was presented by Harris Faulkner and Johnny Joey Jones. 

“Benjamin Hall has been and continues to be an inspiration to all of us. He is one of the most positive people I’ve ever met in my life and one heck of a journalist,” Faulkner said. 

“I wish I could be there in person to pick it up, but I can’t yet. I am doing very well now. I’m walking a lot better,” stated Hall. “I’m seeing better. My injuries are getting better and that is all thanks to the people who came to save me.”  

The blast resulted in Hall losing right leg and left foot. He has lost use of one eye, one ear, and his left hand. 

“It’s thanks to the people who put me back together. The doctors, the nurses, the airmen, the soldiers who all in some sense risked their own lives to save me. So, I want to lift this award to them, I want to lift his award to them, to all of us and to everyone who is doing the same sort of things out there. Thank you all. I’ll see you soon,” he added.

Changes continue to occur at NBCUniversal as NBC News’ Joshua Johnson is leaving the network after the company announced that it was canceling the NBC News Now show, “Now Tonight.” 

“Now Tonight” has streamed weekdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT since debuting in Dec. 2021, but less than a year after launching, the network wants to move in a new direction with the program. 

“We’re heading in a new programming direction, which we’ll announce soon. We thank Joshua for his contributions and wish him all the best,” an NBC News spokesperson said in a statement (h/t TV Newser). 

The final broadcast occurred on Friday and TV Newser adds that Johnson and NBC News Now chief Janelle Rodriguez delivered the cancellation news to show staff on that day too. 

In addition, Rodriguez clarified that no one else’s employment at NBC News would be negatively impacted.

“Creating and anchoring @NBCNowTonight has been an honor,” Johnson tweeted. “[Friday, Nov. 18], that journey ends. This is my last day @NBCNews … Thank you so much for supporting me on @NBCNewsNOW & @Peacock. Onward!”

MSNBC’s decision to oust former host Tiffany Cross continues to loom over the network as The New York Post’s Page Six reported on Saturday that morale at the cable news channel “is in the toilet.”

According to Page Six, other MSNBC hosts are now nervous about network execs not having their backs because of how the company allegedly treated Cross.

“People are scared,” an insider told Page Six. “The consensus is that [MSNBC president Rashida Jones] is trying to unmake MSNBC and change it into something the right won’t be mad at. What about our core audience?”

Furthermore, another insider said to Page Six that MSNBC could be following CNN in being a network that is down the middle and not leaning toward either side of the political aisle.

“Like CNN, trying to go straight down the middle seems to be what the appetite is. The MSNBC identity is being taken away,” the insider said. “The trend right now is everybody’s kind of leaning towards less divisive.”

A spokesperson for MSNBC stated the network “made a programming decision to cancel the show. The newsgroup makes these business decisions all the time.”

Over the last couple of weeks, it’s been reported that some advertisers have been pausing their relationship with Twitter following the takeover of Elon Musk over the social media platform.

However, that way of thinking is now spilling over to news media outlets as CBS News announced that it would be suspending its usage of the social media site due to the “uncertainty” surrounding Musk’s management of Twitter.

“In light of the uncertainty around Twitter, and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site as it continues to monitor the platform,” CBS News national correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti reported (h/t The New York Post).  

Additionally, the segment by Vigliotti also included a quote from a former engineer who was laid off, who claimed that the culture of Twitter under Musk was “definitely a culture of fear and uncertainty, of anxiety.”

However, the suspension of Twitter activity didn’t last long as CBS News’ sent out a statement saying they’ll continue their presence on the platform.

“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation,” the statement said.
