CNN rumored to be acquiring Mashable: Could two media organizations be more made for one another? Possibly not, says the man in the teal shirt — and the buyout could reach $200 million, which is smaller (but nearing the scale) of last year’s AOL/HuffPo merger. Brian Stelter did a piece on this story, too, which CNN is currently denying.

Ooh, big error by WaPo: The Post claimed CNN called Ohio for Romney. They have not as of yet. “This is where we’re getting a bit ahead of ourselves,” John King just said on CNN, in a completely different context. Let’s apply it to the context here. What the heck!

Anybody who’s afraid of debating Newt Gingrich isn’t going to be in very good shape to debate Barack Obama.
Newt Gingrich • Campaigning in Peachtree City, the Atlanta suburb he represented in Congress for twenty years. The GOP presidential candidate mocked his rivals for pulling out of a CNN-hosted debate scheduled to occur just days before Super Tuesday. Both Mitt Romney’ and Rick Santorum’s campaigns announced that they would be skipping the debate, leading the network to drop their coverage. Ron Paul’s campaign announced that Dr. Paul would be withdrawing as well a short time later. Romney’s campaign cited a busy schedule as it’s reason for skipping the debate, but Gingrich challenged the assertion saying, “you can’t hide behind millions of dollars in negative ads and think you’re going to win the presidency.” Let’s be honest with ourselves, though, Newt — there have been so many debates that even the presidential candidates are getting sick of them. Make it stop! source (viafollow)

Roland Martin’s tweets were regrettable and offensive. Language that demeans is inconsistent with the values and culture of our organization, and is not tolerated. We have been giving careful consideration to this matter, and Roland will not be appearing on our air for the time being.
A statement issued by CNN • Explaining their decision to suspend Roland Martin from their network, following a series of Super Bowl tweets that landed Martin in hot water with GLAAD, among other LGBT advocacy groups. He said if you knew a guy who liked David Beckham’s underwear ad, you ought to “smack the ish out of him.” Martin insisted, while apologizing for the offense, that he was attempting to be disparaging of soccer fans, not a man  sexually attracted to Beckham, but these excuses fell in deaf ears when it came to his employer. source (viafollow)
