The Bitter End
Back when people were first writing about my untimely dismissal from CNN, a lot of them sifted through this site looking for a juicy quote to use as the perfect example of why network management might have a problem with the things I say.
For whatever reason, more than one settled on this particular line from earlier this year:
"Pat O'Brien is the single most ridiculous human being currently sucking down oxygen."
Whether this was chosen because there's some sort of consensus within the mass media that this allegation is true -- or because they believe it's the furthest thing from true -- I'll never know.
But to this day, I stand by my strangely controversial statement.
And if you're not sure you agree, please allow Pat himself to once again put your mind at ease:
