I'm not a conspiracy buff, but three is positively a trend. In rapid succession, CNN has just hired conservative talkmaster Glenn Beck (for Headline News), former Republican Congressman J.C. Watts, and worst of all, that moralizing pompous gasbag (ask me how I really feel) William Bennett.
Jeez, Louise. I know the Fox News Channel is kicking CNN's butt in the ratings, but Roger Ailes has already got the Republican base locked up. The San Francisco Chronicle's Tim Goodman says it better than I can.
