The first problem is not really that D.L. is a comedian – Al Franken or Bill Maher, for example, could have indeed brought a fresh look at the news. The problem with D.L is that he’s ignorant or not smart enough for CNN and he’s not funny. Plus, should there really be a place for Ebonics on CNN? Television is the most effective medium. Why can’t Program Directors understand that and accept the responsibility that comes with the title? A hundred Wolf Blitzers couldn’t make-up for the D.L faux-pas. Send the sucker back on Comedy tours and bring hard news back to CNN.
