    Far left organizes to save fired Soledad O’Brien’s job at CNN

    It’s clear who made up Soledad O’Brien’s niche audience base at her former employer CNN now that “Left Action” has issued an alert and created a petition to save their number one heroine in the media. Left Action, a “network of 1,000,000 progressive,” must not have gotten the memo for Soledad, who said just two days ago that her firing was a “win-win” and “worked out best for everyone.”

    Left Action’s petition reads:

    Send CNN President Jeff Zucker a message, and tell him that dropping Soledad O’Brien is crazy.

    Soledad O’Brien has made quite a splash lately by doing something that has become all too rare —practicing actual journalism.

    She has been unafraid to hit back hard against the lies and talking points of elected officials, responding quickly with facts, logic, and the truth. It’s no surprise that several of these interviews have gone viral, given how refreshing her approach has been. And it’s no surprise that she is widely viewed as perhaps CNN’s best journalist.

    And now CNN has decided to drop her. She will no longer host her morning show. It’s mind-boggling, but it’s true.

    Throughout the whole process, O’Brien has shown grace and class, and declined to criticize Zucker and CNN. But this move is crazy. And CNN needs to hear that from us.

    Send CNN President Jeff Zucker a message, and tell him that dropping Soledad O’Brien is crazy.

    So far, the petition has received 7,545 signatures out of a state 25,000-signature goal. Soledad says that future plans include starting her own production company and creating documentaries.

    Also, this will not be forgotten.

    So a major project of a “network of 1,000,000 progressives” is a petition for Soledad, and they can’t get 8000 signatures?

    Sorta explains her ratings and firing right there, doesn’t it?

    Ahhh, does Michael Moore need an assistant? After all, Soledad is Harvard educmacated and she was cute!

    She has no ratings. She asked other journalists to complain and to risk their jobs so she can keep hers. She is making a stink and throwing bad publicity on her boss. She was given an out to make documentaries, probably looked at what it would take (money, her own production company, money, a lot of work, money, taking risks, money, failure, money, etc) and has chosen to go out like an idiot which is the primary reason she has no ratings and is being canned in the first place. She wants her sinecure from a company that is in the dumper for ratings and has less and less money to pay her and waste on unwatched programing. She wants what she wants and she wants it now. Entitlement has a way of blowing up when the money runs out. They could sit her down and explain that she produces no revenue for her employer and she still would not get it.

    Every time I see O’Brien, I’m reminded of those old ‘Breck girl’ commercials.
