I really can’t believe this shit from the president of CNN on the Lou Dobbs birther stuff:
“I understand that people with a partisan point of view from one extreme or anther might get annoyed that certain subjects are aired.”[….]
“I think no good journalist would ever say that a particular story will never be covered again. Every day brings new facts, new pegs.”
What’s interesting is that Dobbs has crappy ratings too. I’m not a media conspiracy theorist, but CNN has now kept two hard-core wingers — Glenn Beck, who as at CNN for quite a while, and now Dobbs — despite poor ratings. At a certain point, that starts to look less like a legitimate business decision and more like…I’m not sure what.
