<p>24 hours after heralding President Obama revealing specifics on his executive actions concerning gun control, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> offered a full-court press for the President on Tuesday following the announcement that saw the President shed tears that anchor Scott Pelley deemed were<strong> &ldquo;more powerful than words&rdquo;</strong> as <strong>&ldquo;the most powerful man in the world&rdquo;</strong> took <strong>&ldquo;action to stop&rdquo;</strong> gun violence.</p>

<p>The newscast opened with the normal teases, but began without the program&rsquo;s theme music and instead audio of a silent White House as the President wept before Pelley interjected:<strong> &ldquo;With silence more powerful than words, the President mourns victims of gun violence and takes action to stop it.&rdquo;</strong></p>
