CNN dumps Aaron Brown
The real bad news: they're betting on Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper. As CNN president Jonathan Klein put it, "We want to expose Anderson and Wolf to more people." That means two hours of crybaby Cooper at ten pm and a more prominent slot for the news travesty called "Situation Room".
As for Brown, Klein claims that the new lineup left "no options" for this "first-class news talent" and certified "doll" -- as opposed to a "babe" like Cooper -- because as everyone knows "(t)here are only so many hours in the course of a day." He also told the Philly Inquirer that Cooper "fits with the persona of CNN that we're projecting - an aggressive pursuer of the facts." In other words, look for a lot of yelling, interspersed with bouts of sobbing. Though I wouldn't hold my breath for any "facts." [LINK]
