Could Soledad O'Brien Be Headed Out The Door At CNN?

You do realize what this means, don't you?

Soledad O' Brian

You do realize what this means, don't you?

It means NO MORE of those "let's-explain-to-white-people-how really-wierd-and-f____d-up-black-people-are" Black in America specials. HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

But the New York Post reports today on something that actually has been rumbling for the past few weeks, since former NBC programming chief Jeff Zucker took over as head of CNN a few months ago, but not verified - that Soledad O'Brien could very likely be on her way out at CNN.

Reportedly O'Brien has been promised a primetime slot on the network, which now likely not to happen, considering that Zucker very badly wants that slot for former Today Show co-host Ann Curry, once she can work out a deal to get out of her existing contract with NBC.

Zucker also wants to establish a new morning show with current CNN on-air talent Erin Burnett and Chris Cuomo who recently jumped ship at ABC for CNN.

All this means is that O'Brien is left out on the lurch and sees the handwriting on the wall that her time at CNN is pretty much coming to an end.

However O'Brien is saying that speculation about her future at the network are premature: “Listen, I have been doing this gig for a while. People go crazy with speculation every time there’s a shift in leadership. I can’t comment on every rumor, but so far I’ve read reports on me, Anderson Cooper, Piers Morgan, Curry and Erin Burnett, and all that’s clear to me is that somebody’s busy dialing (the N.Y. Post)."

Hey, anything that get CNN to stop doing those Black in America specials is all right with me
