Should CNN’s John King Flee the Network?

On Friday we asked readers what CNN’s John King should do since execs dumped his show last week. Considering that King’s personal life has been fodder for internal gossip for months now (let’s just say the network doesn’t look kindly on personal blunders) miraculously readers were kind.

More than 34 percent of you chose this response: “Considered to be among the brightest political journalistic minds in D.C., King will have many options to weigh; go slow, consider them all.” And second to that, at 22.7 percent was this advice: “Screw CNN; he should dump them and flee to Fox News if they’ll have him.”

King’s contract is expected to be up later this year. Time will tell. But Roger Ailes, looks like the king may be up for grabs.
