CNN has canceled its 6PM political news program John King USA.  It will be replaced at the end of June by Wolf Blitzer's Situation Room, which will expand from two to three hours and will now air from 4 to 7PM.

King will remain with CNN,serving as the network's top campaign consultant for the presidential election. For more details, read Brian Selter's article in the New York Times media decoder blog.

    “another lib bites the dust”

    “I didn’t like John King’s show anyway, he’s a Republicant and his political bias showed during his show.”

    If he’s being accused of bias from both sides, he must have been doing something right!

    @Scandalfan I agree, where do these people get the idea he’s a lib. Even so, I liked his show. As I’ve said before, the CNN international reporters are much more intense and interesting. Bring them over, CNN.

    I love how people think that CNN has as much of a left wing bias as FOX. Cute.

    @former CNN Fan,
    Please tell the rest of the adults in the room that you explanation as to why Burnett is staying and King is going is because you’re a 13 yo boy in puberty. You can’t possibly be an adult with that kind or immature logic.

  • Craig

    Yes, let’s just make every news station like Fox, so there can only be one viewpoint on TV. That’ll work.

  • USAmerica1st

    @collapseNavigation As a dude, I can tell you some grown men act like 13 yo boys and make huge decisions like a 13 yo when hot young women are involved. Recent example a famous politician named John. And what network higher up keeps his wife in the spotlight when others may be more deserving? Or not. Just my opinion.


    I couldn’t take 15 minutes of Wolf Blitzer and they think the answer is 3 hours of Blitzer????

    Maybe they should consider reporting real news and fairly on ALL sides of politics with no bias from their reporters.

    Well all other news programs have one view point..biased to the left. We have a $15 trillion debt & deficits of $1 trillion. The safety net is going broke & no solutions beyond taxing the rich coming from the left. Might as well try all news biased to the right & see if anything changes. :)

    John King..Anderson Cooper..I can’t tell the difference..they look alike ,sound alike..just like Campbell and Burnett they are all forgettables!

  • King Kong

    They should cancel CNN all together.

  • Shawn

    The only way Burnett could stop her ratings from flatlining would be if she took her top off.

  • Tony

    Wolf Blitzer, Obama’s biggest cheerleader now goes to three hours. Give me a break!

    CNN, since you are going down the drain giving Blitzer more show time….please give Obama’s other BIG cheerleader Soledad O’Brian additional face time….add a couple hours to her dying show.

    It’s like someone at CNN is trying to sabotage this once fine network.

    Yeah, Debsafan, and get rid of everyone at Fox News also. There isn’t anything “fair and balanced” about that network.
    but…..Fox News isn’t failing, it’s CNN hat has the ratings problem.

  • Rob
