Jeff Zucker, the flesh egg whose destruction of NBC earned him a job running CNN, has launched his reign of terror over the network: James Carville and Mary Matalin — gone! Erick Erickson — gone! Managing editor Mark Whitaker — gone! And lo: Chris Cuomo's silhouette appears on the horizon, ready to take on "a major role in a new CNN morning show and across the network."
These aren't really terrible moves, not The Lyon's Den-level terrible, at any rate, though Erick Erickson's daughter is sad:
When I told my 7 year old I had decided to leave, she laid on the sofa for an hour crying that she'd never see Anderson Cooper again.
Best of luck to all involved. We can't wait to not watch Chris Cuomo's morning show.
