A couple of people have sent me this already, but it really shouldn't come as much of a surprise.
Mediaite: Major Shakeup at CNN/1.29.13
Basically, some of CNN's highest-profile political pundits have been sent packing. The comedy duo of James Carville and Mary Matalin won't have their contracts renewed and Erick Erickson, fulfilling his destiny, will be heading to -- wait for it -- Fox News.
Zucker's asserting his authority and definitely signaling a change for CNN and I have to admit that if his goal is to ultimately cleanse the network of ridiculous partisan hackery in favor of people like Jake Tapper and Chris Cuomo, I can't find a reason to argue.
