Should CNN’s King Adopt C’est La Vie Attitude?

CNN axed its 6 p.m. show John King USA this week, effectively demoting John King, the host. NYT‘s Brian Stelter broke the news. The network, which is facing serious ratings issues all around, said it would be replacing the program with an extra hour of The Situation Room and King would become lead national campaign correspondent.

We’ll see how long that lasts.

King is a veteran TV journalist with years of experience covering politics. He hosted two Republican primary debates this election. Yet, here he is now without a show to call his own so close to the election. We hear his contract is up before the year is out. What should he do?

Answer our Fish Poll. We’ll run the results on Monday.
