NBC's Campbell Brown May Be Getting Paula Zahn's CNN gig; Intolerance May Rise in CNN's Prime Time



Paulazahnpicture5 Campbellbrown1sized When I wrote my column about how CNN's Paula Zahn was finding some unlikely success by focusing on reports about race and social diversity issues, I wondered whether a mainstream broadcaster could spend night after night talking about race and keep an audience.

Looks like I have my answer...
Drudge Report and TVNewser are both reporting that NBC's Campbell Brown is due to take Zahn's place as a primetime anchor on CNN. Lou Dobbs is expected to get either at 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. slot.

Loubook If Dobbs does get the 8 p.m. gig, CNN will be replacing a show hailed for its in-depth examinations about race with a guy who regularly demonizes illegal Mexican immigrants as criminals and gangsters. Check this New York Times piece for more a most excellent debunking of Dobbs' most egregious claims.

Thanks CNN....
