  • While I respect her she's not my favorite reporter on CNN. I'd rather watch Anderson.

  • I'll watch it-I admire her both as a reporter and a woman. I think that she is admirable in her honesty on issues.

  • Well I bet we will hear a lot more info about the wars and middle east. It seems since the HCR debate going on no one is reporting on the wars as much. I bet she will dedicate a lot of time to it.

  • She has been SO biassed in recent years that it is very hard to watch her.

    She actually argues with the person she is interviewing on the ground. Ostensibly, she has singled this person out because they were AT some incident, or they were part of some activity, but then she'll say stuff like."But don't you think it is a sign of ____ when you see ___ happening?"

    Journalist she is not.

  • Does that mean she won't be working on any more campaigns, or will she just go on hiatus for them?
