Roland Martin Fans Wake to Pleasant Surprise

Fans of CNN Contributor Roland Martin were pleased as punch to see him all over the network’s morning programs today for a debate roundtable debrief with Soledad O’Brien. He appeared on CNN’s “Starting Point.” Leading up to the presidential debates, followers on Twitter were outraged that the network gave him the shaft for late-night coverage.

This morning they let out a collective sigh of relief. Too many to print, but here’s a sampling: 1. “Thanks for speaking common sense & standing your ground this morning!!!!” 2. “It’s always nice to start the morning with the TRUTH!” 3. “CNN, More Roland Martin, please.” 4. “Never watch CNN! Ur on, I’m glued to the TV! Keep bringing the funk! Loved it!!”

And apparently Martin, on the move as usual, is breaking down the debate wherever he goes. He wrote on Twitter this afternoon, “The Delta counter rep at Laguardia is hilarious! She wanted a personal breakdown on the debate. I hooked her up LOL.”
