Writes Van Susteren:
This is bad news for Keith Olbermann since if CNN is to be successful, it will have to draw viewers from Keith Olbermann’s viewers. The total number of cable news viewers seems to be a limited number so they have to grab from Olberman.
(You might ask why I don’t mention above Bill O’Reilly whose FNC’s O’Reilly Factor also airs at 8pm? That’s obvious — O’Reilly is SO FAR AHEAD OF EVERYONE IN ALL OF CABLE NEWS that NO ONE can lay a glove on him. No one even tries to compete with O’Reilly so I don’t include him in this discussion!
Or as she put it:
“Who would have guessed when Spitzer was one of our regular panelists that I would leave CNN and he would end up anchoring the time slot I once had?”
