First Donahue, now Chung. Things may be getting better in the world of cable news.
What can I say, other than how pleased I am that her show was canceled? I couldn’t stand her stupifying, “oh-dear” kindergarden teacher manner. Or her weak interviewing skills, replete with awkward, irrelevent questions and pregnant pauses.
Her show was a daily parade of gruesome crime stories, occasionally broken up by human interest fluff — hardly appropriate for a network like CNN, which is trying to build on its reputation of being a trustworthy source of hard news. Sure, CNN has plenty of shortcomings, but it still provides a much-needed respite from Republican propaganda outlet Faux News and that desperate, scandal-mongering ratings whore MSNBC.
I was glad to see TalkBack Live go; and while I’ve never watched Chung’s show, I’ll trust that it was just as inane.
I just wonder what right winger they’ll replace her with; al la Donahue for Savage.
Yeah…TalkBack Live sucked, but I don’t like call-in shows in general.
