I wonder if this will be an afternoon or evening show?

:lol: at Crossballs.

Sounds like some kind of a political show they're doing. Hopefully in the afternoon. All the night slots have been taken.

Firstly, I must say that it's a good idea they're finally considering new program ideas. I was worried Klein was getting too complacent with the lineup he created in 2005, which met success initially but has been declining today. I'm glad he still has ideas in his head.

With that said, I think a political Crossfire/Hannity & Colmes type of show is the wrong way to go. I'm not happy with everything Domestic does, but at least they're the most balanced and most watchable compared to Fox and MSNBC. I hope this isn't a sign that they've decided the stance of impartiality can't work because I'd hate to see CNN fall even more into the mold of Fox and MSNBC by towing party lines. If CNN fell into opinion crap all the time, I don't know where I'd go for national news anymore. I guess I'd listen to NPR full time.

If I had to guess, this show would probably replace Lou Dobbs-- his show seems to be on its last legs anyway, and I don't think they want to get rid of Campbell seeing as she keeps co-hosting these big political nights.

Is this still going ahead or not? I'm sure I read a week or so on one of the TV news blogs that a CNN spokesperson shot this down but nobody else seems to have picked up that quote. I wish I could find the article.

More talk of a new show, this time it appears it could be a morning show.

Great, let's kill of one of the rare news programs still on the network, pathetic.

CNN is testing a concept that would include personalities with dueling political ideologies and opinions.

I definitely agree. American Morning is one of the few, if not the only, daily program on Domestic that I like. I also think having two opposing politically-charged presenters would be too polarizing for morning television.

CNN's move to bring in commentators from both differing ideologies undercuts their opinion-free stance. I'll still choose American Morning over the other shows. What is CNN really doing?

I don't care much for ratings; I'll steer clear of Fox and Friends and Morning Joe. Never cared much for Morning Express, and CNNI has no watchability - except for KLS on WR, but then again, I hardly watch her anymore these days.

Desperate times lead to stupid decisions, so I would not be surprised at all if this goes ahead. Copying Fox and MSNBC isn't the answer.

Like people really wanna watch talking heads arguing in the mornings. :roll:
AM is perfect as it is, the fact that it's losing to Fox's comedy hour shouldn't make them change their concept of ''most news in the mornings''.

I haven't really heard Michel Martin's show because my NPR station doesn't air it, but I am familiar with David Shuster from MSNBC, and CNN, whatever you do, please please please don't hire that man.

Rick Sanchez would have a playdate after work if Shuster went to CNN. :lol:

Seriously, I hate the thought of poaching people from other (struggling) networks. Why doesn't CNN go out and find fresh, new talent. I don't see how you can build a stronger brand on recycled pieces.

DING-DING-DING! I love Shuster, but DING-DING-DING! I've read, on here, repeatedly that they've auditioned people, so why not hire them? Why not put Brooke Baldwin in Betty's old seat instead of constantly flying in different correspondents off the their schedules?

I don't mind them poaching people as long as they poach the right people. Shuster isn't one of them. He isn't even half the journalist Rick Sanchez is. He is so unprofessional and biased that CNN should never even consider him. I'm not too familiar with Michel Martin.

Edit: Though it may sound like Shuster is out of a job anyway.
