Former CNN anchor Campbell Brown has appeared in CNN primetime occasionally during this election cycle, but after her most recent piece, tearing into TV news, especially CNN, for Donald Trump, it’s unlikely CNN’s bookers will be encouraged to have her on.
Brown cites an unnamed friend in TV journalism who is “swilling antidepressants trying to figure out what to do with my life when this is over.”
As she writes, “I was not so interested in night-after-night coverage of Michael Jackson’s death or Britney Spears’ latest breakdown—topics that were “breaking news” at the time. And yes, as my friend reminded me, we did “stupid shit” to get the numbers up when it came to political coverage then, too. (Anyone remember the correspondent’s hologram that appeared on set during CNN’s 2008 election coverage?) But it was nothing like what we’re seeing today.”
Campbell Brown, No Bull…right?
