Greta Van Susteren on Piers Morgan's CNN debut party: "can't imagine" that Fox would do a "fancy NYC Upper East Side" party.

Greta Van Susteren neatly defines the cultural difference between her Fox News Channel and CNN, telling The Hollywood Reporter that Fox waits until a show is a success, and then has a party--but a much different kind of party.   But of course, if CNN's Piers Morgan, replacing Larry King, had to wait for his show to be a success before he got a party--he might never get a party.  So take the party and run, even if the swanky locale is, as she says, "out of touch with the rest of the country." 

Here's what Greta said:

I can't imagine Fox News Channel or friend of Fox News Channel having some fancy 'launch party' at a fancy NYC Upper East Side address with a bunch of celebrities for a new cable news show. It seems so out of touch with the rest of the country, doesn't it?"

It is, indeed, interesting that CNN would debut its new show in this fashion.  Unfortunatley, going high-hat seems to be the only way that CNN knows how to do things.  Any network that thinks of Anderson Cooper as a popular figure with the heartland obviously has a hard time knowing the country it purports to serve.  If Manhattan and LA were countries, La Anderson would be fine, but, alas, the lad needs more eyeballs than that.
