The soap opera that is CNN: Lust, pregnancy, jealousy, anger

by editor on November 9, 2010

They call themselves The Most Trusted Name in News, but they may have to change that to The Most Lust-filled Name In News. It’s not a newscast, it’s a soap opera.

John Roberts and Kyra Phillips give the phrase "Action News" a whole new meaning

The New York Post has the lurid details:

CNN anchor Kyra Phillips’ pregnancy with John Roberts could bring big changes at “American Morning,” insiders say. Roberts, who broadcasts from New York, is likely to move to Atlanta to be with his fiancée, who’s expecting twins. Since CNN ex-president Jon Klein recently rebuilt the prime-time lineup, insiders say his replacement, Ken Jautz, will focus on daytime, and his first step will be to dismantle “American Morning,” the lowest-rated cable morning show. We hear the staff is frustrated with co-anchors Roberts and Kiran Chetry.

“John is a tyrant, freaking out over stories and guests, and Kiran is dumb as a rock,” a staffer said. “He has a chip on his shoulder because he was considered the heir apparent to Dan Rather at CBS.” During an interview with David Axelrod last month, Roberts snapped at Chetry on-air for typing too loud. Chetry could be the first go.

The only thing that could make this story better would be a DNA test proving that Larry King is real father of Kyra Phillips’ twins.

There were broadcasting majors in my journalism classes in college-most of them got D’s at best-and many of them are on air today-go figure.

Hmmm. The good news is that I’ve never heard of Roberts, Phillips, or Chetry. Shows you how much I watch CNN.

CNN has gone downhill since Bernard Shaw retired after the 2000 election. That guy was a class act all the way, & CNN has done nothing right since then.

Hmmm. Empty headed POS impregnates an empty headed POS. The result can only be either a Nobel Prize Laureate, an imbecile, or the President of the United States. Or all three. It’s been done before.
