From the Carpetbagger Report:
It’s been a fascinating month for CNN. After watching Bob Novak switch to Fox News, the once-proud network quickly hired two far-right political figures to replace him…[William] Bennett and far-right radio host Glenn Beck.
Actually, make that three.
CNN has found a new conservative commentator: Former Republican congressman J.C. Watts Jr. “will join CNN as a regular contributor to offer analysis on politics and policy for programs throughout the network,” Jon Klein announced today.
I’m not aware of CNN announcing the recent hiring of any liberals.
If someone wants to start a commercial TV network similar to Fox News but with liberal hosts, now would be a good time. Liberals need a channel to turn to these days.
