I'm very excited for Al Jazeera America. I wish they wouldn't get their talent from CNN though.

Dumb move by AJA. She'll do for them what she did for CNN. Put their ratings in the crapper. I am disappoint.

Probably has a clause in her contract prohibiting John Sununu from appearing on the network.

Perfect fit.

She was an MSNBC level hack.

You consider Soledad a talent. Now I have to when ever I see your name.

She was one of the least credible figures on CNN.

What is Al Jazeera thinking?

That was classic. I thought she was going to make Sununu have an aneurysm on live TV.

I imagine, if her producers were competent, they were having the same reaction.

Why? That's the kind of stuff that makes for good TV, boosts ratings and gets played over and over again on youtube and other networks.

while it discredits the parent network?

Why?
CNN's long lost status as the #1 name in news, along with Soledad's employment status speak for themselves.

I know the adage "all publicity is good publicity" but I've never really understood the merits of the assertion.

Sununu made O'Brien look like a low information partisan hack and that's never good for her employees.

For sure - but you gotta admit that it was not hard to do.

I guess these things are in the eyes of the beholder, because a lot of liberals thought Sununu looked like a fool and cheered O'Brien on as they played the clip over and over again. This further proves my point because if both liberals and conservatives enjoyed it, it's a win-win situation for CNN.

... And now you know why news sucks so f-ing bad. The American news consumer is more interested in the personality-generated drama than the content itself.
