NBC, CNN & YDS
Dean Harry Attridge's office and conference room were like “media central” on March 21, occupied simultaneously by crews from CNN and NBC. At right, CNN's Amanda Towsend, a producer of NewsNight with Aaron Brown, interviews the dean in his office about the Pope and about author Dan Brown's best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code . Meanwhile, NBC set up shop across the hall in the dean's conference room, where Chief Financial Correspondent Anne Thompson interviewed David Miller, Executive Director of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture. Miller, and shots of his Business Ethics class (left), appeared on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams on March 23. CNN originally planned to air Dean Attridge's comments on The Da Vinci Code on March 25, but that showing is being rescheduled.
