Couldn’t have happened to a nicer lefty-pimp.
Executives at CNN must be in shock at the catastrophic implosion of their morning lineup, as Starting Point With Soledad O’Brien (7-9 a.m. weekdays) recorded the cable network’s lowest ratings for that time slot in more than a decade. Fewer than 100,000 adults 25-54 tuned in to O’Brien’s program on an average day, according to the latest quarterly Nielsen numbers.
Since you probably don’t recall Ms. O’Brien’s claim to fame–and since it’s clear you don’t watch her crappy left-wing political blog disguised as a cable TV news show–here’s a brief refresher.
The hilarity of this clip is an all you can eat buffet of fail: Soledad getting the Wikepedia definition of critical race theory pumped into her earpiece by her flunkie producer, f-list actor Jay Thomas accusing Joel ‘Ummm, My Wife Is Black’ Pollak of racism, Soledad’s sneering through her ball-numbing stupidity.
The best part is how O’Brien defiantly refuses to get the joke. She insists that Pollak is trying to make a grand statement about the nature of Barack Obama as a callow youth. The clip of Obama palling around with deranged racialist Derrick Bell merely confirms what most conservatives already knew about the future leader of the free world.
Instead, Soledad O’Brien keeps taking the bait. In the process, she proves Joel Pollak’s larger point (and the late Andrew Breitbart’s too). It’s not really the President that needs to be vetted. It’s the liberal mainstream media that sorely requires a head to toe examination.
Did O’Brien’s run-in with Joel Pollak have something to do with her slide into obscurity? Maybe. It sure as shit didn’t help.
Don’t cry for Soledad, though.
