Former CNN contributors James Carville and Mary Matalin appeared on “CBS This Morning” live in New Orleans today, to talk politics, the Super Bowl, and leaving CNN. While they are now free to appear on other networks, they are not joining CBS, they were just guests on the show this morning.
As to why they left CNN:
“CNN said they wanted the contributors to be there on-set,” Carville said. “It makes total sense, but it is a strategy we can’t fulfill.”
The power-couple are the co-chairs of the New Orleans Super Bowl host committee, so they have a busy weekend ahead.
