Gone Barby Gone
I was actually going to hold off until tomorrow to talk about this, but since the official notice has now been circulated throughout CNN I may as well put it out there (I've known about it since Saturday):
The second-in-command at CNN's American Morning, Barb Simon, was fired late last week.
You probably remember that her boss -- my former boss -- Ed Litvak was canned about two weeks after he and the network fired me for blogging (How To Lose a Job in 13 Days?/2.25.08). Essentially the entire power structure of AM -- a show I've consistently derided since my dismissal for its lack of quality -- is now history.
Guess I wasn't the only one who thought things were going to shit.
For what it's worth (nothing), I seem to be the first person mentioning this anywhere.
Details to come.
