After the coffee. Before going through five days of mail. The Skinny: I caught up with the "Homeland" finale and while it certainly was a blast, I am still disappointed with where the show went this season. Also, I see no chemistry between Brody and Carrie. It is painful to watch their love scenes. Tuesday's stories include the release of NBC News reporter Richard Engel from captivity in Syria, Nielsen buys Arbitron and 3-D re-releases aren't setting the world on fire.

NBC News' chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel and two members of his production team, producer Ghazi Balkiz and cameraman John Kooistra, have been released after five days in captivity in Syria. The network released the following statement early Tuesday morning: “After being kidnapped and held for five days inside Syria by an unknown group, NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel and his production crew members have been freed unharmed. We are pleased to report they are safely out of the country.” Via satellite from Turkey, Engel, Balkiz and Kooistra discussed their ordeal on Tuesday morning's “Today.” The men looked a little tired and unkempt, but otherwise seemed in good spirits despite what sounded like a harrowing five days.

I feel I must comment on the tasteless Conrad cartoon (Who shot Lincoln S&L?--"A. Charles Keating B. Edwin J. Gray C. M. Danny Wall D. John Glenn E. Dennis DeConcini F. Alan Cranston G. John McCain H. Donald Riegle I. All of the above and more," Nov. 27). I do not know which is more tasteless, re-enacting the assassination in reference to a savings and loan scandal or captioning it with the names of eight men who at best have used poor judgment or at worst knowingly committed criminal acts!

Richard Engel, a freelance journalist who became ABC's constant on-air presence from Baghdad during the Iraq war after the network's own reporters left for safety reasons, has parlayed his high-profile work into a full-time job -- but for NBC. Both networks made him offers, but money wasn't a factor, Engel, 29, said Wednesday. "NBC seems like a network that is growing and flourishing, and it helps that they're in first place," he said.

The White House criticized NBC News on Monday for what aides to President Bush called "deceitful" editing of an interview in which Bush was asked whether comments about the president of Iran were directed at Sen. Barack Obama. Bush aides were angered by the way the president's answer was portrayed when correspondent Richard Engel asked about his address to the Israeli parliament last week. Bush had mentioned the president of Iran in the speech and said: "Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along."

Eight years after the start of the war in Afghanistan, President Obama faces a decision about what to do in that troubled part of the world. It's a crushingly urgent moment for the young president and also the national media, still chagrined about the failure to more rigorously study claims that Iraq had to be attacked because of its stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. Perhaps two star network television correspondents had that history in mind when they marked last week's anniversary of the Afghan war with a watershed of their own -- shucking off their presumed impartiality to argue what they think should happen next in Afghanistan.

A former Newport Beach couple accused of failing to report $190 million in earnings over four years pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony tax-evasion charges. Prosecutors are seeking $11 million in unpaid taxes from energy executive Richard Engel, 60, and his former wife, Jolene, 53, in what is believed to be the largest tax-evasion case brought in California through the state Franchise Tax Board. A trial date will be set Jan. 7 in Superior Court in Santa Ana.
