CNN Edits Kathy Griffin’s Blue Moment

CNN2_1.1.JPGIn the first 15 minutes of CNN’s New Year’s Eve Special, Kathy Griffin managed to antagonize, provoke and entertain in her own unrivaled way. Early comments included, “Can I get a pap smear from Dr. Sanjay Gupta?” “Has Ryan Seacrest been shot?” and, about former CNNer Glenn Beck, “He’s a heroin addict Mormon.”
