John King Replacing Dobbs

200jkin.jpgWe found the Lou Dobbs brand of batshit particularly entertaining, so we were a bit sad when the codger quit his show yesterday. CNN was quick to produce a replacement – the network announced this morning that his time slot will be filled by John King, who seems to have a slightly more reliable fact-checking department. From the LA Times:

King, who anchors the network’s Sunday morning show, “State of the Union,” will start his daily show early next year and give up the weekend program. The network this morning described the program as a “definitive political hour” in which King will interview newsmakers, political reporters and elected officials.
