It appears that an agreement between Larry King’s producers and the former Miss California, Carrie Prejean, had been made before airtime that Prejean would not speak about her recently canceled lawsuit against the Miss California organization nor would she take any call-in questions from the viewers – but no one told Larry. What happened during the interview is quite comical …….
and then there was this! Longtime CNN anchor Lou Dobbs quits on the air last night (oops)
Wow, Mr. Dobbs has been at CNN for 27 years – he was one of the original anchors ……HELLOOOO FOX?
Associated Press, Lou Dobbs says he is leaving CNN:
NEW YORK – Longtime CNN host Lou Dobbs shocked his viewers Wednesday by announcing that he would be leaving the network effective immediately.
The daily host of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” addressed his viewers after giving the day’s headlines and told them Wednesday’s show would be his final time in the anchor chair.
“This will be my last broadcast,” he said.
He said CNN had allowed him to be released from his contract early and that he was considering a number of options for the next stage in his career.
“I will let you know when I set my course,” he said. He said he wanted to “contribute positively to a better understanding of the great issues of our day.”
CNN President Jon Klein in a statement hailed Dobbs’ “appetite for big ideas, the megawatt smile and larger than life presence he brought to our newsroom.”
“With characteristic forthrightness, Lou has now decided to carry the banner of advocacy journalism elsewhere,” Klein said. “We respect his decision.”
The longest-running anchor on CNN’s air, Dobbs was one of the nation’s leading financial journalists before turning his program in a more opinionated direction. His persistent advocacy against illegal immigration angered many.
“I’m the last of the original anchors here on CNN and I’m proud to have had the privilege of helping to built the world’s first news network,” he said.
