CNN's list to replace Piers Morgan includes Rosie O'Donnell and Ann Curry
Daily News ^ | 2/27/14 | MARIANNE GARVEY

Posted on 02/27/2014 6:37:08 AM PST by AT7Saluki

CNN honchos have been busy putting together a list of potential Piers Morgan replacements to host a nightly chat show much like his failed one, and Confidenti@l has learned which names are being tossed around.

“Rosie O’Donnell is at the top; the rest are Joy Behar, Ann Curry, Anthony Bourdain, David Muir, Star Jones, Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow,” one person with knowledge of the list tells us. “Most of the people that are being considered are ones that either create news, are going to make news or have rated really high on television in the past.”

PLEASE DO. Apparently no interest in competing for ratings (except against pMSNBC perhaps).

Apparently CNN feels that Rosie O’Donnell is not done thoroughly alienating the American public.

CNN is stuck on stupid.

They were first (time-wise) in cable news, but their structural bias will eventually eliminate the network.

If they simply went head-to-head with Fox, there would be a real struggle for market.

Nobody is competing with Fox.

Nobody.

Yup, she would really rock the ratings against Megyn Kelly. Rosie, that’s the ticket. Joy Behar,, the nasty shrew, wouldn’t be any better. Both are hate filled ‘women”.

Maybe Rosie and Jane Fonda could team up - twice the fun... Add Garofalo and Franken from Air America for flavor and variety... teams of liberal winners to rock the progressive world.

We’ll all be tuning in...

Oooh oooh oooh...I have it! They could use “The Five” format and call it “The Eight” or “The Nine” accordingly. Then they wouldn’t have to choose between liberal idiots and they could have a revolving panel to include all of them! (By including one or two people “of color” every night, they could also avoid the racist problem.)

“Rosie O’Donnell”

It was a long time since I saw that waste of 200lbs of blubber but she was on some show recently during which I said to my wife, I thought she had sunk south beach by now (in Miami) as I had not had benefit of her dribble in some time. She suggested she must be promoing for something.

Well perhaps it was for CNN. So I guess they go from one waste of air to another.

You're kidding, right? CNN can't win going 'heat to head with MSNBC... Advertisers need to track their sales - I'll bet they're getting ZIP from ad dollars spent at CNN.

Rosie O’Donnell ?

Obnoxious and brainless. There is no way that any person anywhere would expect her to have a successful show. Clearly she is being chosen so that they can blame the anticipated bad ratings on her sexual orientation.

This is strawman programming.

I’m only saying, the media is (heavily) biased to the left.

Heavily.

CNN is suffering from also being biased to the left.

If CNN dropped its editorial bias and went for the right instead, Fox would have to fight for market share and we would see even better coverage.

CNN however chooses to struggle even longer, over the shrinking left-side of the market.

Nobody will win struggling over the shrinking left side of the market.

CNN wake up.

Compete with Fox, by being more like Fox.

Editorially.

Content-wise.

Americans really, really want news. We are not getting it.

Stop making the problem bigger.

I know, CNN’s bias is too deeply ingrained to change, but there you have my point.

I used to watch CNN.

Now every couple of months when Fox has a dry spell, I spin by CNN once again and give them another try. I’m sure a lot of people do this.

Every single time that happens, I am almost immediately clobbered by their massive leftist bias.

I’m series.

CNN is terrible biased. It is terrible.

If they wanted a lift in their ratings all they have to do is go to their Own shipping dock and hire the next UPS/USPS/FedEx driver that shows up. I’m sure (s)he would out perform anyone on that list.

IF CNN, I doubt they that want to improve viewership so they want do this, want to challenge Fox they should hire Allen West.
Smart, knowledgeable, can present the facts in many areas, not afraid to debate, ex military, ex representative, strong male definitely not a Morgan and conservative.
A man not an apologizing victim.
Do you want to win or lose CNN?

The way to ramp up ratings on a show with an arrogant obnoxious anti American socialist foreign white male is to replace him with a female arrogant obnoxious anti American socialist female of color or a lesbian.
That will bring them in by the barrel full at least until Zucker’s girl Katie is available.

If they actually wanted to dramatically increase their ratings in the time slot they would pick a sensible and brilliant conservative....I suggest Daniel Greenfield :-)

Of course, they would not do such a thing...not even if it came with a guarantee that they would become number one in the ratings and pull down an insane amount of new ad revenue.

I suppose they think these folks will help their bottom line. Unfortunately, the majority of the US public—including the age demographic that watches political talk shows— really doesn’t want to see/hear far left spokespeople.

I’m sensing a new realty series. Rosie gets her gun range on at various ranges around the country.

Rosie shares safety, purchasing and shooting tips with range masters around the country.
