Hi Rummy fan....Spitzer is one strange looking man IMO. Even his speech is creepy to me. Glad to see him gone...watched about 3 seconds while flipping channels..he easn’t worth the watch by any means.

I propose a new CNN show dedicated to sleaze, slime and murder.

Spitzer, Weiner and Anthony.

'In the Arena' will be replaced with The Casey Anthony Show. She gave them there best ratings in years.

Don't doubt me!

The whole venture wasn’t for nothing. At least it gave a very small segment of the population a little knowledge about what a vapid airhead Kathleen Parker is.

If they were smart they’d do a spin-off of “In The Arena”, called “In The Brothel”...Would garner better ratings and, let’s be honest, it’s a topic more within Spitzer’s realm of expertise.

You know, as badly as CNN does in cable news ratings, I’ll bet that it could be bought for chump change.

The way Fox has been drifting left the last couple years, somebody like the Koch brothers could buy up the network, staff it with UNCOMPROMISING conservatives, and meet the needs of the right on a daily basis.

I don’t doubt that the news gathering capacity of CNN might make its acquisition more complicated but I’m quite sure that most of the wrinkles could be ironed out.

CNN is corrupt.

I have removed the channel from my sets. Not one of my televisons even stops on channel 20.

They will never get one penny from me.
