CNN broadcasters are battling for Piers Morgan’s time slot.

We’re told Bill Weir, Don Lemon and Jake Tapper are in a “death match” for it, with one TV insider saying, “It’s like ‘The Hunger Games’ at CNN, a fight to the death between Weir, Lemon and Tapper for the slot.”

To add fuel to the fire, Weir and Tapper are old ABC rivals, “and are fiercely competitive, to the point of strong hostility.”

All of Hitler’s cronies jockeyed for position as his heir when he was down in the bunker. Their infighting was vicious. And it was for leadership of nothing.

Tapper has actually reported the news a few times over the years. I should think that would eliminate him.

I don’t much about Tapper but Lemon is appropriately named.

They should just run Beverly Hillbillies, or Sponge Bob reruns if they want any sort of ratings
