From time to time I keep track of the comings and goings in my former profession....( it reminds me why I left)...  This one, I think , really puts the nail in CNN's coffin......more over the squiggly....


High profile morning anchor, Soledad O'brien is on her way out at CNN as new boss Jeff Zucker moves Erin Burnett into her morning slot..
So says The New York Post on-line article...

You couldn't have replaced Soledad with a more polar opposite......One speaks, truth to power, while the other one carrys water for those more privleged....Soledad O'brien was the only reason to watch CNN!  Here pointed questions that made bat-shit crazy Republicans squirm was a delight to watch ( and much diaried here on KOS)...


Soledad is talented at producing in-depth serious pieces of journalism, and is a tough interviewer.  That doesn't seem to fit the direction the network is going...
Boy, no kidding!!  If you didn't want to go in that direction then, Erin Burnett is your danger of hard hitting questions, unless she is interviewing somebody from Occupy Wall St.  where she can belittle them for not bathing or having a job...

CNN has just become irrelevent.......Good night and Good luck..

6:36 PM PT: Thanks for the the way , here is Cenk Uygur in his epic takedown of Erin Burnett's reporting on Occupy Wall St...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
