CNN President Resigns Saying Company Needs "New" Thinking

Perhaps one of the great understatements of the year. I'm reminded of a scene from one of Spalding Gray's monologues where he is talking to his eye doctor about how to treat his macular pucker. He asked the doctor if he could try some holistic approaches to the problem. The doctor said, "Sure, try all the holistic approaches you want...then we'll operate."

CNN is like Spalding Gray and sadly, Steve Jobs when he was dealing with cancer initially. They knew deep down what they needed to do if they wanted to get better: hand themselves over to medical science. But Jobs tried all kinds of natural remedies to treat his cancer and wasted valuable time. Now he's gone.

CNN will no doubt stick to their proverbial "holistic" approaches to news. They'll hire more liberals, continue to skew the news and then wonder why nobody is watching. What's that definition of insanity again? No matter.
