Client #9 joins ranks of the unemployed again

What is next for Elliot Spitzer?  The disgraced former Democrat Governor's miniscule audience for "In The Arena" on CNN landed the liberal commentator on the unemployment line.  Politicians like Spitzer are so ill-prepared for the private sector that the concept of losing one's job based on performance and cold hard numbers is as foreign a concept as constitutional limits on governmental power.

 

The New York Post reports:

 

With a paltry 595,000 viewers a night since January, Spitzer was crushed in his 8 p.m. timeslot by Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor," which regularly snags nearly 3 million viewers.

 

[...]

 

Even long struggling MSNBC was nearly doubling Spitzer's lowly audience numbers with left-wing loudmouth, Lawrence O'Donnell.

 

In a statement Spitzer said "We provided diverse and valuable perspectives during the show's tenure.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CNN."  Diverse and valuable perspectives?  Shilling for the left and accusing the GOP of trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the poor," doesn't seem very diverse to me. 

 

Initially Client #9 was paired with faux-conservative Katheen Parker (as if CNN would hire a real conservative) and was dubbed "Parker Spitzer," however amid pathetic ratings, Ms. Parker was given the boot back in February.  Since then Spitzer has been working solo "In The Arena."

 

What does this mean for Anthony Weiner?  Has the Spitzer firing moved Huma's Hubby one step closer to a job at CNN or have his prospects been diminished by the failure of the former governor?  Perhaps CNN needs to rethink its programing decisions.  There may not be enough viewers who actually want to watch a sex-scandal plagued Democrat shill spew leftist propaganda.

 

At least CNN's regular viewers can rely on the ailing cable news channel to provide the middle ground perspective between Fox News Channel and MSNBC.  Yep, the objective and thoughtful analysis of Fareed Zakaria (foreign policy advisor to the Obama regime) continues to uphold the CNN tradition.

 

For the time being Anderson Cooper will be moving into Spitzer's old slot at 8 p.m.
