Abawi, Bergen, Ware on Afghanistan

Atia Abawi was on yesterday with a look at General Stanley McChrystal and Ambassador Karl Eikenberry touring sites in Eastern Afghanistan to check on the progress in hearts-and-mind-winning projects there:

Michael Ware was on The Situation Room this afternoon and discussed the election situation (still a mess) and the devolving situation with the Kabul-Kandahar roadway, which had been such a success for the American mission:

CNN just does not get it. There is an item
on TV Newser that says CNN is thinking
about another show of left vs right.How
dumb can you be. In the era of You Tube,
Facebook and other social media where
you can submit your own video ,news and
even set up your own broadband channel
who cares about opinion?Doe anyhone
in the building live in the 21st century.
The ratings are already not too good for
State of the Union and even TSR numbers
are taking a hit.It just defies logic and
explains why they are trailing MSNBC.

@anon 12:32PM - where are you getting your ratings numbers for State of the Union? I've never seen them posted anyway. I've wondered whether it did as well as the old Reliable Sources/ Late Edition combo.

I really like the sarcasm on Fishbowl.
Really breaking the mold CNN.Start
the when will Klein be fired pool. I
say before the year is out.

Morning Joe said it best this morning. The left
vs right stuff is really getting silly and it is time
for it to end. Because it just does not make any
sense.I am wondering if this means Lou Dobbs
is history.

You're kidding right. Just as people on cable
news are saying it is time to ignore the wngnuts
CNN wants them to have a show.
