    Campbell Brown was never able to build ratings for her show. One would think her show would simply be canceled and she would go back to doing what she previously did but she left CNN completely.

    Betty Nguyen left CNN for the greener pastures of CBS.

    It must be Obama's fault.

    Those in the know watch Maddow.
    Does anyone really watch CNN these days?

    We get MSNBC on our satellite feed here in Spain and have discovered the "oddly manly" Rachael Maddow to be a great bit of visual chewing gum. Yesterday I heard her cry out after interviewing a Republican mouthpiece, "Finally, finally we've actually had a real representative of the Republican National Committee willing to come on our show! Yay!"

    She's obviously someone who grew up in broadcast journalism who learned how to do her homework and authentic research. Never understood Campbell Brown. Always thought she was just a fill-in meat puppet for whoever was on the road or vacation at CNN.

    Brown's show is up against Bill O'Reilly which is why she probably couldn't raise her ratings.
