reported that Eliot Spitzer, co-host of "Parker Spitzer," was saying that the other co-host, Kathleen Parker, "will be gone within a week." Well, in fact, Parker was gone within 12 hours. But still, a pretty dead-on forecast.
Now, it's been confirmed. We read gossip, not only to be amused and titillated, but also to learn things that might not otherwise emerge from more traditional editing and vetting processes. But in this case,
Page Six demonstrated that it had absolutely the right stuff.
Poor Kathleen. She sold her soul--selling out anything that remained of her conservative principles--to suck up to the MSM and to CNN and in particular. And she discovers that she is as disposable as one of Spitzer's girls.
But of course, we can also say "poor CNN." Because Spitzer, one of the last hires made by ex-CNN chief Jon Klein, is still there. Spitzer is the real problem for CNN's 8pm time slot. Ordinary Americans are not going to cotton to a billionaire-playboy-dilletante-adulterer. So they have not watched over the last four months, and they will not in the next four months, or four years. But that's not Klein's problem anymore--it's the problem of his replacement, Ken Jautz. And Jautz has to figure that the same p.r. "steamroller" that crushed Parker could well crush him, Jautz, if he seeks to do the right thing and get rid of Spitzer. You know the job was dangerous when you took it, Ken!
