The New York Post today claims — not in an op-ed or editorial, but in a “news” story on page 13 — that CNN host and veteran journalist Anderson Cooper came out because he is “desperate for attention.” The Post, conservative Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation’s carbuncle on the face of journalism, writes:
Left-leaning cable network CNN has dropped to a 21-year ratings low, making Anderson Cooper so desperate for attention, he surprised no one by coming out as gay.
Network suits want to point a finger of blame for Soledad O’Brien’s 37 percent loss of eyeballs, Piers Morgan’s 29 percent ratings decline, and Cooper’s abysmal 19 percent loss of viewership, compared with last year.
CNN could always hire Ann Curry, who was scapegoated for the “Today” show’s ratings dip, then fire her.
Time to face reality. Viewers can get all the leftist propaganda they need elsewhere.
