Jeff Greenfield Leaving CBS News (Fired!)
TV Newser ^ | 4/4/11 | Alex Weprin

Posted on 04/06/2011 6:40:12 PM PDT by jimbo123

Breaking: CBS News senior political correspondent Jeff Greenfield is leaving the network.

In an email to staff Monday night, Greenfield said he will be departing CBS at the end of April. It does not sound like the decision to leave was his own, if the email was any indication:

“While I did not initiate this decision, I think it was the right one,” he wrote.

Wow— something of a minor tsunami hitting many of the Alphabets talking heads now playing musical chairs. Next... but we won’t miss you either.

I think we have found our FBI informant. Used to work at ABC, fits the profile.

CBS has gone through five years of not pulling a profit. They hired up a number of big names and paid out tens of millions. So the time has come to dump these folks and move to a cheaper group.

As for Jeff? Well...in the early 1980s....he actually had some common sense and I might have appreciated his wit. That disappeared over the past decade. He needs to take a year off....move to Iowa and just get used to real people again. And I would suggest you watch as another five or six CBS folks come to find a exit.

Greenfield apparently found insufficiently enamored of Obama's crotch for CBS's purposes.

Sounds like .gov. We have spent trillions in the war on poverty, public education etc. and look how poverty has vanished and we are all educated to the point it is time to stop spending. Everyone can now care for themselves.

The phrase “CBS news” is an oxymoron, sort of like “military intelligence”. It makes no sense. Who is Jeff Greenfield, anyway?

I used to watch Imus, and Greenfield was a regular guest. He’s now 67, so he could retire, like ordinary citizens do at that age.

Politicians and news people hate to give up the spotlight.

You don’t suppose Fox would replace Beck with that toad, do you?

I forgot about Toobin. Whatever happened with that? Did Toobin marry Greenfield’s daughter?

I think Toobin is still married to his wife. And he apparently is a real sicko whose proclivities would even shock Barney Frank.

I just checked Google about Greenfield’s daughter. An article said that Toobin offered to pay for an abortion, but she refused.

He didn’t want to pay child support either, but he was forced to. What a low-life. His wife stuck with him.

The baby is doing very well.

Would like to belief that it’s the one lefty in each bunch that’s getting the boot, but since the networks are almost entirely populated by lefties, something else may be going on.

Hmmm, all these newsies are jumping overboard.

I wonder if we will see them all on Obamas re-election teams?

Greenfield grew up in NYC. I think his father was a teacher and is mother was a librarian. He had relatives that were lawyers in Democratic politics.
Greenfield went to U. Wisconsin-Madison where he was college newspaper editor. He went to Yale and get his LLB in 1966.
Greenfield then became a top speechwriter for Bobby Kennedy in 1968.
He quickly became a funny, incisive guest on TV shows and parlayed it into a television journalist career.
Don’t forget that Greenfield lost his cover after Ted Kennedy died and the next generation imploded.

He spent quite a long time as the liberal interlocutor on William F. Buckley, Jr’s ‘Firing Line’.
