TVNewser now hears that CNN has reached out to Hasselbeck’s team about her possibly joining the channel in some form when she leaves “The View.” Another option on the table–according to a source close to the host–is to have her “gracefully exit” the daytime program by having her stay with the show, but cut back on the number of days she appears, while allowing her to pursue work elsewhere.
You know if CNN makes this move they will have made a huge leap from being simply Fox-lite to becoming an actual Fox News competitor. At least in the realm of having the most empty headed blonde bimbos on staff that is.
And this news does not come at a good time for CNN either, since currently they are under fire for their overly sympathetic reporting after the Steubenville trial:
Remember the CNN broadcast a few days ago, when Candy Crowley and friends bemoaned the fates of the Steubenville rapists? That didn't go over well, and nearly a quarter million people want the network to do something about it. In the two days since the verdict was read, a Change.org petition asking for CNN to make an on-air apology — okay, several on-air apologies — has gained over 215,000 signatures (As of this post it has actually reached 266,10.) and looked to be on track to reach the self-assigned goal of 300,000 in a matter of hours. In other words, a lot of people are not happy with how CNN covered the Steubenville trial, and they're not going to forget about it any time soon.
Siding with rapists, reporting GOP slanted news, and now considering a bubble headed blonde conservative bimbo. I am not sure there will be ANY daylight between Fox News from CNN anymore if this keeps up.
