"Liberal media" at it again-- replacing Soledad O'Brien with Erin Burnett?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/10/jeff-zucker-erin-burnett-cnn-morning-report_n_2270373.html

The suits say they just want to "shake up the morning show". Uh-huh. By replacing a person who asks pointed questions of conservative politicians with a conservative salesperson. Because there are just no conservative stooges on tv, I guess.

1. Burnett is clueless and infuriating, but...

I had a different take on this. I will be thrilled if she's out of prime time. Her voice alone drives me up the wall. Soledad is refreshing to watch. She asks great questions and puts feet to the fire. In a perfect world she would take Burnett's prime time spot.

7. Mark my words: Blueblood Beijing Burnett will be the next Katie Couric whether we like it or not.

Corporate suits love conservative, ice princess, unapologetic bluebloods like Beijing Burnett. There's no evidence that she's going to tone her highly partisan Wall Street song and dance act any year soon.

First it's mornings on CNN. Then the big Kahuna - NBC.

Surprised they didn't lap up Maria Bartiromo in her prime. Maybe they found her delivery too annoying for the morning . . . or found her too important a voice to be taken off of "Crap, Nothing But Conservatives".
