No, "Wall $street Week w. Fortune" continues to be broadcast by 
channel 2 on Fridays at 10:30 pm.  It follows the Wall Street
Journal's editorial board program scheduled at 10:00 pm.
The repeat of "Beat the Press" in the middle of channel 2's
must-see parade of talking-head shows is the result of the 
removal of Gordon Peterson's "Inside Washington" from the 
schedule.  In DC itself, Gordon was let go by the syndicator,
WUSA-TV channel 9.  He immediately hooked up with WJLA-TV channel
7, and a reconstituted "Inside Washington" is now on their
schedule.  I don't know if it's been made available to
other markets yet, commercial or public, but if it is, it should
go somewhere in the Friday night lineup.  And yes, I have sent
WGBH-TV an email to that effect!
