Bob Franken's Farewell: "My Time Here Has Been Fraught By Meaning..."
Bob Franken's goodbye note to his CNN colleagues is a must-read:
There's this live shot I always wanted to do:
'AND NOW FOR A REPORT ON WHAT THESE WASHINGTON DEVELOPMENTS MEAN, WE GO TO CNN'S BOB FRANKEN. BOB, WHAT DO THEY MEAN?'
'NOTHING WOLF. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING'
As I depart '...the greatest political team in television,' I wanted to make sure that I clearly stated that my time here has been fraught with meaning. FRAUGHT
It has meant friends, unbelievable shared experiences, friends, laughs, friends, frustrations, friends, exhaustion, friends, remarkable accomplishments.
Franken concludes by writing, "this has been a long run, but it's just a warm-up. Which is my dopey way of saying I will simply be taking my act to another stage."

Quite an interesting story. Did Jeff leave, or was he fired? A couple of interesting quotes from TN.
TV Newser reports that Jeff Koinange left CNN. His bio also was removed from CNN.com.
"Jeff Koinange is no longer employed by CNN," a spokesperson confirmed today. She said CNN will have no further comment, saying "we do not discuss personnel matters."
TN article for those who havenít read it
The move may be related to a new blog allegedly published by a jilted lover that's getting a lot of attention online.

After reading the posts about what seems to have happened, as Spit said, if half of that is true, CNN is correct to let him go.
But, all of this, at least for me, is strange. And I would suppose that CNN made some investigations on its own to make sure that this is all true, and then make the right decision.
Unfortunatelly, this comes when his wife is expecting their first baby.
