Greta Takes Issue with Bill Carter’s CNN Story

Greta_4.27.jpgFNC’s Greta Van Susteren has issues with this morning’s Bill Carter piece on CNN’s prime time performance, specifically this line:

The change Mr. Klein made at 10 is CNN’s best story. Anderson Cooper, who began a newscast at that hour, has been a success. He was winning there until recently being overtaken by Greta Van Susteren on Fox.

“It is just plain wrong that ‘he was winning there until recently,’” writes Greta on her blog. “Mr. Klein has focused – spent zillions of shareholder money on marketing – on 10pm and guess what? He has failed. Here is what he does not get: we are in the NEWS business, not the MARKETING business. There is a big difference.”
