  1. CNN is hurtling towards irrelevance. How about dumping that idiot Lou Dobbs instead of Miles O’Brien?

    I agree Notfoxy!

    First of all their morning show totally sucks. John Roberts doesnt have the personality for a morning show. He needs to go and their morning format has to change. Its just dead.

    Their dayside anchors are not bad and i actually like the Situation Room.

    Lou Dobbs must have pics of the CNN brass braking the law because i dont understand why he has a show. He is so negative.

    Campbell Brown show is a total flop. I dont know who decided to give her a show. She cant be doing that much better than her predecessor.

    I think the biggest difference between CNN and the other 2 networks is that MSNBC and FOX does a better job of developing shows , finding and developing young talent. CNN has a knack for putting the wrong people in the wrong slot.
