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

    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 who is surprised about the nature of O’Brien’s fan base? I’m anxious to see what happens here. My prediction is that CNN management will probably ask O’Brien to make a statement to cool off those that petition. Surely she’ll go along since it was all a “win-win” ending, right??

    Soledad’s new employment will be as Winston’s supervisor at Minitrue.

    Fellating the president and his cronies is “actual journalism”?

    The “actual journalism” part was a pretty far stretch, but it is entertaining to watch blue on blue action!
