Sending a top anchor out into the field is how TV news organizations traditionally define a major story. ABC's Charles Gibson and NBC's Brian Williams both anchored evening newscasts from the Middle East in mid-July 2006 when Israel invaded Lebanon. CBS' Bob Schieffer, predecessor to Katie Couric, spent two days there.

Transcript by Newsy**** BY MALLORY PERRYMAN You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy A week after the Tucson tragedy - the Sunday shows had to decide whether or not to continue what has become a national conversation about violent rhetoric, gun control, and mental health. Every show touched on the hot button issues, but CNN’s State of the Union and ABC’s This Week took it a step further. Candy Crowley devoted her entire show to the issue of mental health- and Christiane Amanpour hosted a town hall meeting in Arizona. One big issue up for discussion- gun control. How did a guy like Jared Loughner legally buy a gun and ammo? Although it’s unlikely Congress will pass any serious limitations on gun ownership, two Democratic members of Congress say, it’s time to consider it. SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): “Like all the other rights, it’s not absolute. First Amendment: we have laws against pornography. You can’t scream ‘Fire!’ falsely in a crowded theater. There should be limits on gun laws as well.” (NBC) REP. RAUL GRIJALVA (D-AZ): “We have to talk about the issue of access and that’s not undercutting the Second Amendment at all. And then we have to talk about munitions, magazines, the caliber. These are all fair discussions to have now.” But Republican Senator Tom Coburn says- restrictions only affect law-abiding citizens. SEN. TOM COBURN (R-OK): “The people who are going to commit a crime or do something crazy aren’t going to pay attention to the laws in the first place.” (NBC) Finally- CBS’ Bob Schieffer calls the issue- a matter of common sense. BOB SCHIEFFER (Host, Face the Nation): “But if we can find a way to bar minors from buying alcohol, if we can keep those with bad eyesight from driving, if the army can find a way to keep Loughner from joining, can we not find a way to keep the mentally deranged from buying weapons?” Another Sunday talking point- mental health. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says, Loughner fell through the cracks of a broken mental health system. FMR. MAYOR RUDY GIULIANI (R-NY): “He was being told to be treated. People were saying he was bizarre. People were saying he was frightening. A teacher wouldn’t be with him without a guard being there. Gosh, you would think at some point along the way, he’d have been evaluated.” On ABC’s special edition of This Week, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a friend of Gabby Giffords, agrees. REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (D-FL): “This is not a gap in law enforcement. We have a tremendous gap in coverage for mental health care. On CNN, Congresswoman Grace Napolitano says- enough talk- let’s do something about mental health policy. REP. GRACE NAPOLITANO (D-CA): “I think we need to begin to press upon the state and federal governments the urgency of this. Because every time there’s a tragedy, there’s a lot of hoopla for a month or two but then it dies down, goes away, everybody forgets about it and we’re on to the next thing.” And summing up her thoughts on the special edition of State of the Union, host Candy Crowley says- she hopes the show did some good. CANDY CROWLEY (Host, State of the Union): “This is a person who suffered from a mental illness and affected the lives of hundreds of people…We thought it was time to look at mental illness and treatments, what’s available. An hour wasn’t long enough but I really loved the show.” Finally- our running tally of who’s in and who’s out of the 2012 presidential race- Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty tells Fox News, he might be IN...but he’s not sure how far he’ll go. FMR. GOV. TIM PAWLENTY (R-MN): "For somebody like me, you have to do very well - win - or do very well in Iowa…My name ID outside of Minnesota isn't very high. It was about 15 percent about a year ago amongst Republicans, and it’s not particularly high outside of Northern Iowa.” You can see all our coverage of the issues the media focused on in the aftermath of the Tucson shooting here: Rep. Giffords Shot in Tucson, Ariz. Obama Urges Civility in Political Discord Giffords Shooting and the 'Vitriolic' Political Climate The Miraculous Recovery of Gabby Giffords Gun Control Debate Reignited After Giffords Shooting Who is Jared Loughner?

BY MALLORY PERRYMAN ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday…Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen appeared on every—single—Sunday—talk show- to talk about Libya. And he was pretty adamant about pointing out- the only reason the U.S. is in Libya is to enforce the UN-sanctioned no-fly zone and NOT to oust embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi. Adm. Mike Mullen: “Certainly, the goals of this campaign right now are limited, and it isn’t about seeing him go…It’s about supporting the U.N. resolution.” But while the Admiral says the U.S. is only spearheading the air strikes for a few days- Adm. Mike Mullen: “While the United States leads this now, we expect in the next few days to hand that leadership off to a coalition-led operation.” The Sunday crowd is left wondering- what’s the endgame? Here’s CNN’s Candy Crowley after her interview with Admiral Mullen. Candy Crowley: “Sort of sidestepped like ‘What’s the end game here?’ Like…how long will we be there? Do we need Gaddafi to leave? You know, what do we want?” Democratic Senator Carl Levin tells NBC’s David Gregory, President Obama is serious when he says it’s an in-and-out kind of mission. Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI): “This mission has been very carefully limited…after the air is cleared of any threats there’s going to be a hand off to our allies.” But Republican Senator Richard Lugar tells CBS’s Bob Schieffer, it doesn’t make sense for the U.S. to help Libyan rebels but not help out those in countries like Bahrain, Yemen, and Syria. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN):"We had better get this straight from the beginning…or there’s going to be a situation where war lingers on, country after country, situation after situation, all of them on a humane basis, saving people." On NBC’s Meet the Press panel, Richard Haas of the Council of Foreign Relations says, intervention is a slippery slope- and he doesn’t see the U.S. pulling out after a few days. Richard Haas (Council of Foreign Relations): “It’s not going to stop here David. It’s not going to end with simply the United States shooting off some tomahawks and doing some aircraft runs. This is going to require ultimately the one thing the administration says it doesn’t want to do: boots on the ground.” But Helene Cooper of The New York Times argues- the U.S. never wanted to get involved in Libya- and that’s why Admiral Mullen is determined to limit operations to enforcing the no-fly zone. Helene Cooper (New York Times): “At its heart, the administration doesn’t really want to do this. The Pentagon certainly doesn’t want to be at war in Libya. They’ve been saying for weeks, Libya is not a national security interest…Which is why I think you’ve seen the appearance of completely inconsistent policy.” Gaddafi taunted the Allied coalition Sunday morning, promising a long, drawn-out war if international forces continue to intervene.

BY MALLORY PERRYMAN You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday….the secretaries are sent out to talk about Libya. Why the U.S. is there- and when it’s getting out. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates tells NBC’s David Gregory- this is a limited mission that’s going according to plan. Robert Gates (U.S. Secretary of Defense): “The President has made it very clear there will be no American troops on the ground in Libya. This eventually is going to have to be settled by the Libyans themselves. Perhaps the UN can mediate or whatever but in terms of the military commitment, the president has put some very strict limitations in terms of what we ware prepared to do.” And sitting on Gates’ right- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who says the U.S. wasn’t going to opt out when the international community was calling for action. Hillary Clinton (U.S. Secretary of State): “Can you imagine David if we were sitting here and Gaddafi had gotten to Bengazi and in a city of 700,000 people he has massacred tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands had fled over the border destabilizing Egypt. Everybody would be saying, why didn’t the president do something?” The duo also sat down with CBS’ Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation, where Secretary Gates revealed- embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is doing his best to make the Allies- the bad guys. Robert Gates (U.S. Secretary of Defense): "We have trouble coming up with proof of any civilian casualties that we have been responsible for. But we do have a lot of intelligence reporting about Qaddafi taking the bodies of the people he's killed and putting them at the sites where we've attacked. “ As for what happens next, the secretaries say the U.S. expects coalition forces to take over enforcement of the UN-backed no-fly zone. As for intervening in other revolting nations, Secretary Clinton says- there are a few things that must happen before the U.S. will step in. Here, she’s referring to Syria. Hillary Clinton (U.S. Secretary of State): “If there were a coalition of the international community. If there were the passage of a Security Council resolution. If there were a call by the Arab League. If there was a condemnation that was universal.” On CNN’s State of the Union, Democratic Senator Carl Levin tried to simplify the argument for those in favor of intervention in Libya. Candy Crowley sums it up. Candy Crowley (Host, State of the Union): “You know Africa is full of countries where leaders are slaughtering their people in the hundreds of thousands and we’ve done nothing about that. So the tipping point to you is ‘Well if they ask us to come and the international community supports it, then we’ll go. That’s your… Sen. Carl Levin (D- MI): “That’s key. That’s absolutely critical.” But some Sunday round table members aren’t buying the secretaries’ mission accomplished press circuit. The BBC’s Ted Koppel asks- why Libya? Ted Koppel (The BBC): “The question hasn’t yet been answered as to why it is that Libya of all countries in that region has won the humanitarian defense sweepstakes of 2011.” And ABC’s George Will argues the U.S. is way too optimistic about the chances of democracy in Libya. George Will (ABC): “Our objective now, believe it or not, is to create a vacuum by decapitating the regime by getting rid of Gaddafi, into which we hope in this tribal society that something good will flow.” But on the Meet the Press roundtable, Savannah Guthrie points out, President Obama isn’t thrilled about the situation either. Savannah Guthrie (MSNBC): “The president is obviously not happy with his set of choices. One person told me in a meeting he called this military action in Libya a ‘turd sandwich’ which he was quoting one of his national security aides who likes to use that term.” Finally- while Secretaries Gates and Clinton made their rounds on ABC, CBS, and NBC… Chris Wallace was pretty unhappy they didn’t stop by Fox News…and he let everybody know about it. Chris Wallace (Fox News Sunday): “Despite the fact that we routinely have more viewers than two of those Sunday shows, the Obama team felt no need to explain to the millions of you who watch this program and Fox News why they have sent U.S. servicemen and women into combat. We thought you’d like to know.” Mediaite notes- to be fair- the duo didn’t appear on CNN’s State of the Union either. So far, no on-air complaints from host Candy Crowley.

BY ALYSSA CARTEE ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This Sunday topics ranged from tornado destruction in the South to progress in Libya. But discussion always came back to the budget- from the birther’s lack of focus on the issue to the way it impacts education. As the death toll in the South continues to rise - Virgina Governor Bob McDonnell talked to NBC’s David Gregory about support after one of the greatest natural disasters in U.S. history. McDonnell: “The American people, while we disagree on some things, when we are attacked or we have a catastrophe like this we bind together and work together and help each other better than any other country on Earth.” CBS’ Face the Nation tackled another hot topic, Libya- with Republican Senator John McCain expressing disappointment in the nation’s involvement. Schieffer: “Are you satisfied with how the administration is handling this?” McCain: “I’m not because we have taken a backseat role. The President has quote ‘withdrawn’ from NATO.” Of course, the budget still reigns as the leading Sunday topic. On the Meet the Press panel, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg sounded the weekly call for fiscal compromise. Bloomberg: “How much chaos and destruction to our economy do we have to do before everyone in Washington starts acting like an adult, coming together and not pandering to small voting blocks?” And this week’s White House representative- Senior Advisor David Axelrod- says the Obama administration is trying to strike a careful balance. Axelrod: “We have certain responsibilities. One is to be fiscally responsible but we also have a responsibility to our future. We have a social compact that we have to keep with our senior citizens, with our children to educate them and give them the tools to compete. There are certain things we know we have to do. That oughta guide our decision making here.” On ABC’s This Week, analysts even tied the birther movement to economic insecurity. Stockman: “Since they’re not worried, since they don’t fear the consequence of what they’re doing, they’re willing to engage in this kind of you know rank theatre when so to speak Rome is burning.” Flash Huffington: “But this is not just something that happens in times of deep economic anxiety. Paranoid politics can thrive and demagogy can thrive. People can believe things for which there’s no evidence.” CNN’s State of the Union took a new angle on the budget crisis- hosting a panel to discuss how schools are dealing with budget woes. Randi Weingarten (Pres. of American Federation of Teachers): “On the ground right now as we are talking in Washington, there are cuts in school budgets throughout the country so kids are losing out in terms of music, they’re losing out in terms of sports, they’re losing out in terms of arts. They are losing the kind of activities that they need to engage them.” Steve Perry (founder of Capitol Preparatory Magnet School): “I think that one of the best things to happen to public education has been the budget crisis because it has required us to look into ourselves and make decisions.” But Fox News stuck to a more familiar topic- raising the debt ceiling. Tea party favorite Michelle Bachmann stressed the urgency of the issue to host Chris Wallace. Bachmann: “Don’t let anyone tell you that by increasing the debt limit, the ability for the federal government to keep borrowing, that somehow that is going to show the world that we're even more credit worthy because we're borrowing? Very soon, Chris, we are going to be at the point where we are going to be borrowing more money so that we're essentially having a $4 trillion budget and $2 trillion of it will be borrowed money. We can't live that way.” But ABC’s This Week panelist Chrystia Freeland thinks says- lawmakers talk about the budget crisis every week- but there’s something major missing from the conversation. Chrystia Freeland: “Well I think it’s always going to be a political debate. But what I think is really missing in both Republican and the Democratic approach right now and is really an example of political cowardice is taxes. You know, and we heard in your interview, Christean, Ryan saying ‘well this is about cutting spending.’ It’s partly about cutting spending but it is also going to be about raising taxes. And that’s the thing that I think no one has the courage to talk about.” Congress must vote on the debt ceiling by May 16th. The bi-partisan ‘Gang of Six’ is expected to present its budget plan in the coming weeks.
