LAT Takes on CNN

LAT’s Howard Rosenberg‘s premise is simple: D.L. Hughley can’t be as funny as the rest of the personalities on CNN:

Is the line separating news and entertainment not blurry enough? Cablers are already somersaulting in HD to attract and keep viewing throngs that flocked to them for election stuff in 2008, and light fare such as Leno, Letterman and ABC’s “The View” have become must-stops for political candidates and their surrogates. Now here comes CNN wiping the line away entirely by having some of its actual correspondents go for yuks in “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.”

This is the next revolution in the ‘news for ratings’ debacle. Of course, we won’t mention how much LAT ink is devoted to what celebrities have dimples in their butts…they are all serious journalists over there so we won’t mention that.
