Daily Mail: “Soledad O’Brien joins Al Jazeera three months after losing her job at CNN”


From the UK Daily Mail:

Soledad O’Brien has joined Al Jazeera America as a special correspondent just three months after she was forced to leave CNN.

O’Brien previously hosted CNN’s morning show Starting Point but the cable channel has since reworked their lineup and launched New Day in an effort to compete with other network news programs.

She didn’t cut ties with the network when she signed off in March, however, as she agreed to give CNN ‘first look’ rights for the documentary programs her production company Starfish Media creates.

Now it appears that she will be adding another channel to that roster of possible venues, as Al Jazeera announced she would be airing a number of her one-hour documentaries on the upstart cable channel.”

    Ease off on the decongestant, bitch.
    It looks like a towel on a wet willie.

    A perfect place for her to pitch her “America is Racist” rants. Someday she might get into journalism, too.

    Since Storm Sandy blew my antenna away the only channels I can get are foreign ones. I’ll be glad to see a familiar face if she is on Al Jazeera. At least the foreign channels accommodate us poor people who live where there is no cable available. Of course, you need to wade through all the propaganda, but the foreign channels tell you things you’d never hear on American news. I verify later by looking things up in the online newspapers. I learn a lot watching Al Jazeera, Russia Today, China Central, NHK (Japanese news).

    Russia Today has a lot of good news, just like UK Daily Mail. Don’t even know who the wench was, but if CNN couldn’t put up with her, THANK GOD she isn’t working for PBS or NPR.
