  •  KO cleary is a hard guy to manage - but also (10+ / 0-)

    great on television. (the ESPN oral history book gives that impression for sure - very fair to him largely).

    Current's failure is ultimately on Al Gore and Hyatt ... not because they tried to create an alternative to the wasteland of cable news, but because they DIDN'T.  Just changing hosts and making the chatter more liberal is not nearly enough to make a truly viable news oriented channel.  But they took a fairly lazy solution, a product of establishment thinking - and frankly, Gore and Hyatt are very establishment sorts.
