A New York PR rep for CNN’s Larry King is calling an item that The Daily Caller ran yesterday blatantly “inappropriate.” The Daily Caller item slams CNN for doing a segment on cheaters and not including the network’s own host.

“Sigh. Oh, CNN. Not only has one of your own, King, cheated on numerous occasions in the past, he cheated on his wife with her sister in the past month! What do you think we were – born yesterday?” writes The Daily Caller in a post that begins with the line: “CNN seems to have a case of amnesia.”

FishbowlDC reached out to New York PR rep Howard Rubenstein, King’s spokesman on this matter. “They were absolutely wrong,” Rubenstein said in a phone interview. “He [King] has always denied it [the affair] and so has his sister-in-law and so has his wife. Not including him in that group was appropriate. It’s an inappropriate item that they ran.”
