Soledad O’Brien will leave CNN’s morning show soon, but she will still have a limited role there producing documentaries. She will no longer be exclusive to CNN and will no longer have a morning show on the network. That means she is free to produce content, take hosting jobs, and do reporting work at other networks.
Ms. O’Brien will go from being an anchor to an outside producer. She may have had little choice in the matter: the new head of CNN Worldwide, Jeff Zucker, decided even before he started the job in January that he wanted to replace Ms. O’Brien’s morning show…
O’Brien has been doing some great stuff lately, including some hardcore interviews, one of the few out there who is unafraid to confront or challenge her guests. For example:
You get the idea.
Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” and “Colbert Report” have long noted that attack ads are the most effective way to destroy your competitors in an election season. It only makes sense that the network would produce some attack ads of its own. The targets of Comedy’s ire? The TV news networks.
The first two attack ads, out today, take on Fox News and CNN by asking big, important questions, with more ads for other outlets on the way.
Well, he does have a tendency to over analyze the stupid ones.
The Hollywood Reporter took it upon themselves to count how many times each cabler spoke about Sarah Palin last year. The network that ran Palin segments a whopping 512 times in 2010 was Fox News MSNBC.
What about Fox News — the network who hired Palin as a contributor a year ago?
After hiring Palin last January, it’s not like Fox News hasn’t been mentioning her at all. “On the Record with Greta van Sustren” came in at 148 Palin mentions, “Hannity” mentioned her 145 times, and “The O’Reilly Factor” mentioned her 108 times.
