I strayed, I erred, I violated a code of behavior that I should not have and the public understands what I’m saying. I have learned that the peaks of public life are great fun, but the valleys are much more instructive. They force you to look into your soul.
Eliot Spitzer •  Discussing his decision to run for New York City comptroller, five years after stepping down from the New York governor’s office in disgrace over a prostitution scandal and a month and a half after Anthony Weiner made it safe for Spitzer to do so. (Weiner, by the way, is ahead of Christine Quinn in a recent poll of NYC mayoral candidates.)

Number of people in this photo who still host shows on CNN: Zero. Sorry Eliot Spitzer. ”Anderson Cooper 360” will now take the 8p.m. time slot, as it always should’ve been.

From “Parker Spitzer” to just “Spitzer”: Kathleen Parker’s out, kids
Alright, so who wants to watch “In the Arena”? Mediaite reports that the weirdest relationship on television, CNN’s “Parker Spitzer,” is no longer with a female co-host. The Washington Post columnist will be leaving the show, and the show will be renamed on on Monday. Question of the day: Was Kathleen Parker just an excuse to ease Spitzer into his own show? source

See that look on Eliot Spitzer’s face? It’s the look of a guy who had a really crappy night. Sure he’s smiling, but that’s because he’s contractually obligated to smile. He knows that if this doesn’t work, he doesn’t have much else to fall back on. (Kathleen Parker should be good no matter what happens, honestly.) Too bad the first-day ratings don’t support his long-term future. The show reached 457,000 last night, far behind every other news channel. Even Nancy Grace beat “Parker Spitzer.” To put this into perspective, the last big premiere at CNN’s 8 p.m. slot, Campbell Brown, drew three times those ratings. Ouch. Good luck, bro. source"Parker Spitzer" drops like a bomb onto CNN’s pathetic ratings

Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.
A statement from CNN • Responding to Rick Sanchez saying that Jon Stewart is a bigot and suggesting that CNN is run by Jews by firing him. He made those comments yesterday on CNN contributor Pete Dominick’s radio show. You think his Twitter followers are gonna save him now? By the way, his timing is pitch-perfect. His 8 p.m. show is going off the air to be replaced by a less-controversial figure: Eliot Spitzer (and, OK, Kathleen Parker). CNN will have to fill out Sanchez’s Twitter-infused 3 p.m. slot, though. Maybe the guy can get a job causing the Elian Gonzalez crisis in Miami again. source
