CNN Mulls Show Shake-Up (Parker-Spitzer)
WSJ ^ | 1/10/11 | SAM SCHECHNER

CNN is considering replacing Kathleen Parker, co-host of its new evening program "Parker Spitzer," according to people familiar with the matter, as the network struggles to reverse a steep slide in its evening audience.

The conservative columnist could be replaced by a new co-host to serve alongside former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, as executives mull a shake-up of the show, the people said, adding that no decision has been made. "Parker Spitzer" hasn't been able to significantly build its audience since its debut just over three months ago.

Hmmm . . . now what other pseudo-conservative woman could they replace her with? Peggy Noonan?

Parker is not a conservative in any real sense of the word and Spitzer is a disgrace.

Nice combo

I was astounded when CNN put the whore-monger on his own show. I guess I can still be surprised, but I’m not surprised no one wants to watch.

Time to bring in Peggy Noonan, another Obama-worshipping faux conservative.

E.D. Hill! Wow, that might be worth watching at least once.

I have a better suggestion:

Replace Parker with . . . nobody.
Then, replace Spitzer with . . . nobody.

E. D Hill is a “primary-voting Democrat”.

Maybe CNN should replace Kathleen Parker with Ashley Dupre.

“Dupre & Client #9”

It’s a winner.
