|Newsnation's Crown Prince of Show-Hair Leland Vittert greets Chris. "Bitch, please", he says, then takes a long sip of his chocolate milk.
Dan Abrams said it, I reckon, that Newsnation quests for that large blotch of America that sits near the middle of the political spectrum, and this while the others are deadleft or solidright.
It's a broad swath, if they can catch the attention of the masses, and the hiring of Chris Cuomo seems a nice catalyst to garner them attention. We'll see how Chris does at his new home, what he can build towards that "middle". Raping and pillaging aside, I enjoyed his work on CNN and thought he did it with a hint of that Italian Lamborghini drama, through commentary and interviews, and pretending that Don Lemon was a likeable person.
But Don visited him during his distress. So. The Thorn In The Paw and all that.
It's just the hope that the "news product" isn't milquetoast or lukewarm, but actually speaks to the middle. And for one, I've never thought a newschannel should just be all about a President, and I've burned-out on 1/6 long ago. And I for one have no yen to see Hunter Biden's "private" laptop photos, which were released to the public by a PC repairmen who obviously can't be trusted with customer property.
The same people that flip over Hunter's homemade porn wouldn't say boo on the Trump Kids having offices in the White House, or Jenna Bush or any of that.
*I defy Harris Faulkner to document that she has taken even one journalism course in her lifetime.
*Showing footage of Jan 6 interviews from three weeks ago doesn't qualify as "fresh content".
*I'm still a Shep guy, but Vittert does indeed have that good show-hair, and despite being on two national news networks, probably still has potential to do yet more.
