James Carville, Mary Matalin, and Erik Erickson depart CNN – Will the last person departing CNN please turn the lights out?

Steve Capus – Must be the week to depart news networks or something because Capus is leaving NBC News…

MSNBC – MSNBC got caught again using edited video in its daytime news operation. MSNBC’s response to this was to not address the matter at all other than to play the whole video.

Starting Point – Can you say “Dead show walking”?
