  • Re: “Joe Trippi finds work”: I was wrong. Instead of replacing Joan Walsh at MSNBC, her joined her at CNN.

      I’m sure we’ll see him on RELIABLE SOURCES defending his old network. Not.

    From John Nolte, Breitbart:
    CBS News fired Political Director Steve Chaggaris over allegations of “inappropriate behavior.” Chaggaris is the 52nd member of the elite media fired, suspended, or accused of misconduct.

    Larry: He pushed anti-Trump sentiment at CBS NEWS.

    “Ex-CNNer launches liberal news service” um, now for something completely not different.

  • Minnesota Nice

    CNN attempted to milk Anderson Coopers high NYE ratings by airing 4, yes four, episodes of AC 360 on Tuesday. Time to go back to the cow as the four airings failed to even get 1 million viewers.

    I see that CNN is airing The Lead with Jake Tapper in primetime. Is this a test run for a permanent move? I know that Tapper has lost fans on the right because of his obvious distaste for Trump (though I’m sure he has gained a few others). Regardless, I can’t see anyone credibly claiming that he isn’t a stronger host than Don Lemon. It has never made sense to me why Tapper is buried in mid-afternoon.

      Soupy Sales would be a stronger host than Don Lemon… if he weren’t dead.

    Don’t know much about psychology, but compare this pic of Keith Olbermann’s mama with the pic of Katy Tur that Johnny posted with these Jan 4th offerings.
