The New York Times’ Brian Stelter sums up CNN’s day of news but offers up a few previously unheard of nuggets. Like this…
Soledad O’Brien, the anchor for the last 12 months, has been widely praised for her political interviews despite the program’s relatively low ratings. The show’s defenders say it never received the internal support and the external marketing it had been promised. They imply that it was not given a chance to succeed.
Uh oh. Someone’s not happy. Read between the lines and it would seem someone on the Starting Point staff or brain trust is squawking out of school and putting the blame on CNN’s upper brass for failing to deliver. Now who would have something to gain from trying to position the story that way?
