What’s Hot/What’s Not: 02/16/14
Michael Smerconsish – Smerconish joins CNN and will host a Saturday show…
Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable – It was an expected move but it had everyone talking once the news was announced.
Gregg Jarrett vs. Don Lemon – A word to the wise…never engage a lawyer over court coverage when you aren’t a lawyer. And never engage a cable cable news anchor with a network known for hitting back…hard. This fight was over in the first round.
HLN: Social Media Network – HLN announced its latest rebranding of the past few years and this one will be centered around Social Media. Good luck with that…

What made this particular court case a little different from other court cases CNN has gone off the deep end on was that the network hadn’t been keeping this case in the news in the weeks prior to the case getting started.
David Faber – Did CNBC’s Faber break an embargo to report the Comcast/Time Warner Cable news?
Me too, me too! – Does FBN’s announcement of a new taped series indicate that it’s going to follow CNBC into the world of business tape in primetime? We shall see…
