So CBS, in its desperation, is picking Rick Kaplan to take over the floundering "CBS Evening News with Katie Kouric."
The Cable Gamer would like to know why she was passed over for the post. OK, I have no track record of success, but neither does Kaplan, at least not in the last decade, since he left ABC News. Since then, he failed at both CNN and MSNBC.
So with that background, what makes anyone think that Kaplan can help CBS in this new/newer post-MSM media environment? The only answer I can think of: pure desperation.
And oh, of course, CBS chiefs might be thinking that the Clintons will be coming back to power, and that a notorious Clinton-lover such as Kaplan might get them invitations to the Lincoln Bedroom, if not ratings.
