Great. The left is dropping their talking heads.

Now if we could only get the right to stop worshiping their dishonest blowhards.

Bah, they should have canned Piers Morgan.  I can't stand that smug, self-satisfied douche.

Anderson Cooper is a leftie now? He's gay, therefore, he's a liberal?

Be careful, if you reach any further for your "both sides..." argument, you might pull something.

Is he not? (I'm Canadian and I don't have cable ... but I thought he was on that side of the fence)

Speaking of pulling something ... you really stretched there with the gay reference. We don't have the same anti-gay movement up here that you have. To me, your comment is quite a non sequitur.

Sorry for the offense. But, no, AC may vote Democratic in private, but on air he's been a leader in CNN's beige and khaki and "no substance so as to not appear biased" approach to cable news that's kept them in their position for so long.

And yes, it is sad that "not reciting Chairman Priebus's/Luntz's/Ailes's/Limbaugh's newest manifesto verbatim" qualifies as "liberal bias" in American media, and "not a white straight male" is an immediate red flag for "leftie."

Slow down.  It's not AC360 that's been cancelled, it's a spin-off called "AC360 Later".
 
2014-02-10 10:45:56 AM  
Great! More time for them to show that Beatles documentary.

This. They're cancelling a show I never heard of.
 
2014-02-10 10:50:27 AM  
Never watched it, but I would expect that it sucked in comparison to Red Eye or Craig Ferguson.

Reading Comp... how does it work?!

Based upon interactions with my more conservative acquaintances, I have found that most of them consistently watch conservative shows simply to boost the ratings. They have a real need to feel like they are 'winning' and high ratings (to them at least) means that they are in fact winning against the Left.

I suppose the same can be said of liberals but I have never known any who were that entrenched.

I hate him also.  He should be investigated in the phone hacking.  I am sure he had some involvement in that.

CNN doesn't know whether to shiat or go blind. Every time I turn them on they look more like a fake news program from a judd apatow comedy.

AC130?  That would be way more interesting.
 
2014-02-10 11:27:06 AM  
Could any network possibly be suckier at what they are supposed to be doing than CNN is at being a news organization?

/Considers that The History Channel, A&E, TLC and Discovery are all pretty much fake "reality" shows now.
/Never mind.

He is a leftie. He may not pass your purity test, but he is one none-the-less. He was still the most respected person on CNN's payroll, from both the left and right. He was capable of being objective.

The problem is Zucker. Cooper went from covering things like the Syria turmoil, the NSA spying and Fast and Furious to 24-7 Justin Beiber fests.

AC Later sounds more like the Saved By the Bell: The College Years of Anderson Cooper shows.

You realize that an Americal liberal is not often seen as liberal anywhere but America, right? And by right, I mean wrong.

No, his orientation has nothing to do with it. You're honestly trying to say AC is a conservative? That's retarded, ... hell that is total fark level retard.

You do realize that issues that are conservative in the US are liberal elsewhere and vice versa, right? That each country has its own spectrum of traditions and ideals and direct correlation doesn't exist.

For example, the idea that children born in the US are American citizens is only challenged by the most liberal (not Liberal (although some left-populist strains were nativist), but change-oriented) and xenophobic and is extremely conservative (traditional) while the same idea in most other countries is quite liberal (anti-tradition) if not radical.

Apparently know one read the actual article (I know, welcome to Fark, right?)

They pull something called "AC360 Later" which was Cooper doing more of a late night theme at 10pm. His normal show "AC 360" is still on and he's signed a contract extension
