As I reviewed twelve months of TVNewser blogging this week, something became very clear: As CNN said goodbye to its talent this year, FNC added new hosts and analysts to its payroll. Bill Hemmer is only the most prominent example, and the trend is undeniable:

FNC’s gains:

> Dec. 16: Bob Novak

> Nov. 29: Tiki Barber

> Sept. 5: Laura Ingle

> July 19: Bill Hemmer

> June 20: Marvin Kalb

> June 15: Wesley Clark

> June 9: Gretchen Carlson

> Mar. 9: Julie Banderas

> Feb. 15: Martin Frost

> Sept. 12: Walter Rodgers

> Aug. 1: Ken and Daria Dolan

> June 25: The Capital Gang

> June 22: Maria Hinojosa

June 6: Bill Hemmer

> June 3: Judy Woodruff

> Mar. 28: Charlayne Hunter-Gault

> Mar. 12: Myron Kandel

> Jan. 5: Tucker Carlson
