CNN Looks To Remove Kathleen Parker

I noticed an article this past week suggesting that CNN may swap out conservative journalist Kathleen Parker of 'Parker Spitzer.'

According to the piece, CNN's ratings trail even those of the hapless MSNBC on weekday evenings. Moreover, Parker Spitzer had an average of 468,000 viewers in December, while Fox News' O'Reilly Factor had 2.6MM and MSNBC had 874,000. How bad to you have to be to lose to MSNBC in an evening slot?

I couldn't discern from the Journal article whether or not CNN had done viewer, or non-viewer research as to why the program is failing. But what struck me as odd is that Parker is the one being rumored as gone, rather than the bad-boy of governors, Eliot Spitzer.

From misbehaving as a barely-legal goon when AG of New York, to cheating on his wife and embarrassing himself, her, and the state of New York as governor, you'd think maybe the CNN management would reconsider using this tainted liberal.

However, ever in keeping with liberal mindsets everywhere, they're going with their gut and canning the conservative.

Talk about denial....
