Taking Out the Trash

What we almost missed today…

Editor & Publisher has its annual Pulitzer preview up- “Two Washington Post series in the running include Debbie Cenziper and Sara Cohen’s “Forced Out” investigation that revealed how local landlords drove tenants from rent-controlled apartments.

Who leaves the oldest show in television for the newest?

Family, Friends & Contacts,

The lead reads like this: I left the oldest show in television for the newest.

After 12 years with “Meet the Press,” CNN wooed me with an offer I couldn’t refuse– including creative control of a show that is going to change my favorite political institution, the Sunday morning public affairs program.

I believe in CNN and in John King.

So set your DVRs and on Sunday morning, tune into CNN from 9 am to 1 pm ET. The show is called the “State of the Union with John King” and I hope that with my brethren alone we can bump the ratings up this Sunday.
