Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Jon Huntsman, and Michele Bachmann say they will not take part in a Univision debate scheduled for January because of allegations that the Spanish-language media outlet pushed an embarrassing story about a relative to Sen. Mark Rubio (FL-R) after he refused to be interviewed for a Univision program. Univision denies this. [via The Miami Herald blog]

Erin Burnett , CNN’s newest host, has announced the name of her new program via tweet Erin Burnett OutFront. And now CNN has released the promo for the show. She uses some interesting words to describe the show — “courage,” “authentic” — and the imagery looks a little Anderson Cooper-esque.

CNN’s announcement for its new evening line-up describes it as a “general news program” that will fit into the global scope and wide topical span of the evening coverage. What do you think of this clip?
