CNN Cancels Soledad
O’Brien Show, Says It Wasn’t
Due to ‘Ethnic’ Viewership

Newsbusters, by Randy Hall

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/1/2013 10:11:14 AM

The tumult at CNN that has seen several contributors leave the cable news network continued on Wednesday, when Soledad O´Brien´s morning show, “Starting Point,” was canceled because her program´s small audience was “too ethnic, based on the high concentration of minority viewers.” Despite ending O´Brien´s morning show, a CNN spokesman told Politico on Thursday that "Soledad is very important to the network, and we´re discussing various options with her.” Many staffers at the cable news network were stunned to learn that Vice President Bart Feder had often complained about the audience the morning line-up attracted

Priceless. I have always wondered just what she had to offer. And whether it was off-camera. No talent. Way left. Not very bright.

Now they bring on Andrew Cuomo. One of the most partisan and least telegenic or charismatic persons on the planet. Who wants to see and listen to him any time, least of all over breakfast?

I remember reading a Parade article about her, a year or so ago.
And for a woman who appears to be white, she is nursing all kinds of racial grievances, going all the way back to third grade, when a classmate asked her why she didn´t have thick lips if she was black.
She still remains angry about that.

As a woman who is now a mother to a special needs child, and I think she actually has a nephew which is autistic as well. How much of a problem is this going to be as she tries to navigate both sides of that issue?"

Soledad O´Brien has been trading on her ethnicity and her Ivy League credentials (Harvard) since she entered broadcasting. She is both Hispanic and Black thereby checking off two boxes on the diversity form that CNN fills out. But she has a smarmy personality born out of her Northeast origins and her ultra liberal political orientation. Bluntly stated she tends to p--- people off. It´s her nature and personality. I doubt she would fit in anywhere except maybe at MSNBC where I would not be surprised to see her pitch up next.

Just before the Senate failed to advance a transportation and housing bill Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to give Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who was presiding over the chamber at the time, a little help. Ms. Baldwin, Wisconsin Democrat, attempted to get order of a bustling chamber so senators could speak. “The Senate is not in order,” she said. “The Senate will be in order.” “Madame President, Madame President,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, cut in. “Have senators sit down and shut up, OK?

A Syrian religious group have banned croissants because they symbolise western oppression. A Sharia committee issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring croissants ‘haram’, which means they are forbidden in Islamic law. The group, which operates in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, said that they have ‘colonial’ significance. They claim that the pastry’s crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, reported Al Arabiya. Islamis sharia committees have declared several strict fatwas in rebel-controlled areas of Syria.

In a dire assessment of the financial challenges facing the military, Mr. Hagel said the political stalemate between the White House and Congress over a comprehensive deal for taxes and spending has required the Defense Department to plan for a range of cuts, since a deal to lift

A progressive group will coordinate with liberal activists to disrupt Republican town halls during the August recess, when lawmakers will face questions about Obamacare and comprehensive immigration reform. Americans United for Change, run by a former Democratic National Committee communications head, plans to send activists to Republican town halls in swing states and even red states to target lawmakers like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). "This is a new approach. The theory in the past has been to be stealth about the effort to confront members at town halls--but sometimes it´s been too stealth, and we haven’t generated enough activity,"

A new Republican poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in a potentially tough spot for reelection, with more than half of respondents open to reelecting a new senator next year. The survey, from GOP firm Magellan Strategies, reveals 51 percent of respondents say it´s "time to give a new person a chance" in office. Thirty-nine percent agreed that Landrieu has performed her job well enough to "deserve to be reelected." Though those numbers are bad news for Landrieu, they´re not a clear indication half of Louisiana voters will vote to oust her.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
