JOHN ROBERTS SELLS HIS SOUL TO THE JOURNALISTIC DEVIL, JOINS FOX NEWS

So John Roberts' CNN show American Morning was cancelled and it was widely reported that Roberts was going to be transferred to Atlanta to be closer to his soon-to-be-wife Kyra Phillips. Well, a crimp has been put into that plan -- he has up and quit and joined the folks over at Fox News. That has come as a shock to people who can't believe a Canadian ex-rock-and-roll journalist could end up there, with all the right-wing people.

The reason, we are told by the online news sites, why Roberts made the switch: Roger AILES. Apparently the two go back a ways and Ailes has a reputation for sticking with his talent -- something CNN has shown an unwillingness to do. Heck, look at all the people who've left CNN in the past while. And look how many of them are now at Fox News or even Fox Business News! It's a long list -- Greta Van Susteren, Bill Hemmer, Lou Dobbs, you name it.

I wouldn't even be surprised if Kyra Phillips ends up at Fox News pretty soon to join ol' "JD" Roberts.Surprising development in TV land, to say the least.
