What other explanation do you have for Eliot Spitzer being hired to host a lively debate show alongside Kathleen Parker to replace Campbell Brown at CNN? For that news operation this has to rank as a new low.
Speaking of which -- why are they bringing back a lively debate show? I thought Crossfire was lively debate, and that they were getting rid of shows like that to focus on news -- that "news was the star". Well, it's obvious that strategy is a thing of the past.
What else is next for the prime time lineup? Is CNN going to go ahead with that goofy plan being talked about to replace Larry King with Piers Morgan? Given their other hire, maybe they should forget Piers and go with Charlie Sheen. He's more of a fit.
