So long, Soledad ‘Special Snowflake’ O’Brien? CNN show nixed in revamp


Gee, we wonder why? Take a gander at two of her latest tweets for a hint.

“@navarrowwright: New blackberry announced today @soledad_obrien you ready? :)”/ waiting w baited breath! Lol

“@ioddone: @soledad_obrien *bated breath”//lol I think we’ve established that I cannot spell.

— Soledad O’Brien (@Soledad_OBrien) January 30, 2013

Oh, honey. Also established? The fact that you can’t get ratings.

RT @jeff_poor So long, Soledad O’Brien

Soledad O’Brien is losing her CNN gig, Politico reports.

CNN plans to launch a new morning show to replace the poorly rated “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien,” sources at the network tell POLITICO.

The new show will be co-hosted by Chris Cuomo, who has just joined the network from ABC News, and likely by Erin Burnett, who currently hosts a primetime program on CNN. O’Brien’s own future at the network remains unclear.

LOL RT @jayrosen_nyu: CNN moves Erin Burnett to the AM. Next move: hosting infomercials. Soledad O’Brien, a real journalist, is showless

— Cuffé (@CuffyMeh) January 30, 2013

LOL, indeed. A “real journalist”? Ah, yes. Remember the time she read straight from a lefty talking point blog?

@soledad_obrien done at CNN..Who is going to read @thinkprogress talking points on the air now?

— S.M (@redsteeze) January 29, 2013

And who can forget when she claimed she is just so special that she is above bias? Stop tweeting Soledad! She’s special. Oh-so-special.

Who will run endless shows about race now?

But-but -but if CNN dumps Soledad O’Brien, who will tell me who’s black in America? —…

Soledad O’Brien was informed her show was cancelled by a producer who read it directly from Wikipedia into her earpiece.
