CNN axes Susan Roesgen

UNODIR, I think we count coup on this one.

...CNN correspondent Susan Roesgen's contract will not be renewed and she will be leaving the network....

...When TVNewser asked whether Roesgen's comments at the Chicago tea party rally had anything to do with her not being renewed, a CNN spokesperson said, "I can't comment on personnel matters."

Apparently even CNN has some sort of boundary on transparent and egregious bias that can't be crossed without repercussions...particularly if legions of irate viewers just happen to be flooding your phone lines and mailbox at the same time.

When you're getting pummeled badly by FOX in every freaking time slot, you tend to be sensitive to certain ummm...."issues" that might affect viewer retention.
