Jon Klein and Jim Walton, the two uber news/corporate suits now directing CNN, held a “State of CNN” earlier this week, and, it being a room full of reporter types, of course the gossip is flowing, and much of it is hilarious.
Apparently both Klein and Walton were claiming that while it was true that CNN continues to lag behind Fox News in the ratings, it didn’t really matter, because CNN’s fewer viewers were actually more intelligent than Fox’s many more viewers. See? It all balances out!
But perhaps more telling about CNN’s mindset on news and its viewers, was that when asked which news show on another network either man would want to bring to CNN, Klein said, “60 Minutes,” and Walton said, “The Daily Show.”
Klein is a former “60 Minutes” producer, and was one of the show’s biggest on-air defenders during the “Rathergate” scandal last year. When it was pointed out to Walton that “The Daily Show” wasn’t really a news show, Walton strongly disagreed. Somewhere, Larry King was smiling.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
