CNN's Dana Bash went all out to get the breaking news of Anthony Weiner's resignation on the air Thursday morning. How all out? Well, Bash was hustling to work on the day that she hit her 36th week of pregnancy. (Bash is having a child with CNN anchor John King.) That's nine months, to be exact: she's just about ready to pop.

While the New York Times broke the story in the morning, Bash had actually had the news of Weiner's intended resignation on Wednesday night. But her source barred her from going public with the news until the morning--which she did, becoming the first cable news reporter with the news.
