Soledad Show Cancelled Because Audience is "Too Ethnic"
RUSH: CNN, CNN has cancelled Soledad O'Brien's morning show, Starting Point. "The tumult at CNN that has seen several contributors leave the cable news network continued on Wednesday, when Soledad O'Brien's morning show, Starting Point, was canceled because her program's small audience was 'too ethnic, based on the high concentration of minority viewers.'"
Now, that's what was originally reported. CNN suits are denying that. They're admitting the audience was small, but they say (paraphrased), "We don't care if it's all minority. We don't care if it's all ethnic. That certainly isn't true." But when the original report hit, there were a lot of people worked at CNN who were stunned to learn that one of the vice presidents (a guy named Bart Feder) had complained about the audience not only being small, but "too ethnic."
