The Most Boring Name in News

Good Job, Leslie

Good Job, Leslie

America has spoken and it has decided that the charisma of Wolf Blitzer, Lou Dobbs and Larry King is just not charisma enough.

CNN, which invented the cable news network more than two decades ago, will hit a new competitive low with its prime-time programs in October, finishing fourth – and last – among the cable news networks…

…CNN’s programs were behind not only Fox News and MSNBC, but even its own sister network HLN

It’s as if CNN hired a cast of Jay Lenos.

Wolf Blitzer has two traits, incredible blandness and rank stupidity; Larry King is a horrid mix of Charlie Rose and Methuselah. CNN tries to play off the notion it doesn’t “spin” news, but what the heck is Lou Dobbs? Dobbs ratings are terrible, so bad that when his contract is up he won’t even be able to do the “Tucker Carlson Failure Tour” and hit each and every cable news network while circling the drain. MSNBC doesn’t want him, even FoxNews doesn’t want him.

If Lou wants to work in TV, it looks like he’ll have to do news on Telemundo.

Makes you wonder if they had decided to be a news network and actually present more substantive and well-reported news stories rather than the path of concern-trolling how they would be doing? Maybe they should change things?

Q of the Day: Who Are The Natural Partners With The Trans Community...?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
