Maher has appeared as a guest on shows like “Hardball with Chris Matthews” and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” over the years, but recently criticized the network for what he called “obsessive” coverage of the New Jersey bridge fiasco.
On whether he’d ever take his brand of outspoken comedy to CNN, Maher was unequivocal: “Never, going to happen.”
