24 hours after heralding President Obama revealing specifics on his executive actions concerning gun control, the CBS Evening News 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 “more powerful than words” as “the most powerful man in the world” took “action to stop” gun violence.

The newscast opened with the normal teases, but began without the program’s theme music and instead audio of a silent White House as the President wept before Pelley interjected: “With silence more powerful than words, the President mourns victims of gun violence and takes action to stop it.”
