John Avlon, a political columnist who specializes in the analysis of the country’s independent movement, is joining the “best political team on television” as a CNN political contributor.
The news was announced today by CNN senior V.P. of Washington programming and Bureau Chief David Bohrman.
“I’m honored to join CNN as part of ‘the best political team on television,’” said Avlon, who spared no time adapting to the network’s catch phrase (nice brownie points, sir.). “As an independent voter and a centrist, CNN is the network which best reflects my values. I’ll continue to stand up to the extremes of both sides-while trying to restore a sense of humor and historic perspective to our political debates-in the belief that most Americans want to move our country not left or right, but forward.”
