CNN’s Susan Roesgen‘s contract will not be renewed and she will be leaving the network, TVNewser reports. She was criticized for her coverage at the tax day tea parties in April, when she said the event she was covering was, “anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing, conservative network Fox.”

LAT: In a new television spot, CNN proclaims it is “No. 1, with more viewers than Fox and MSNBC.” The ad goes on to say that CNN has held the top spot for seven years in a row. This came as a news flash to Fox and MSNBC, considering that both top CNN in the ratings.

It’s CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo vs. Erin Burnett at MarketWatch’s Media Web.

“The Gaggle” Premieres

(earlier)

From here:

    Political comedy was in the spotlight at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival Saturday morning as industry and other folks turned out for “The Gaggle,” an on-stage opinion talk show created and produced by former festival director Craig Minassian that is being workshopped for potential TV show development.

    Comedian Marc Maron and Ana Marie Cox, the Washington editor for Time.com, co-hosted the show with The Washington Post’s Shalaigh Murray, Republican political strategist Mike Murphy and “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver as guests.

Layoffs, schmayoffs…At least one Time’r seems to have a rosy future:
