When I was asked to do this, we were always clear it would be temporary — daily newscast anchoring is not what I am built do do. But that doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed the program didn’t perform better.
CNN anchor John King • Discussing the end of his “John King, USA,” which will get replaced with another hour of Wolf Blitzer doing his “Situation Room” thing. King will instead focus on the campaign trail — which he feels is his greatest strength. It’ll be his fourth presidential campaign with CNN. His show will continue through June 29.

Terrible things are happening in Syria. But no worries! John King will soon be back at the “Magic Wall” where he will hopefully magic wall up some way to keep all those people from dying.



This is what John King had to break from to tell us about purple Santorum. Because, honestly, why wouldn’t you want to turn away from Syria to tell us about a non-binding primary and two relatively small caucuses?

What are we going to call this if we get purple Santorum down the middle of the country?

e-sigh says: I didn't catch CNN's coverage of the last debate. Why was it atrocious?

» SFB says: They asked frivolous questions (iPhone or BlackBerry?), had weird doo-dads on the screen, and seemed more focused on Twitter than the debate itself. John King looked particularly bad by the end of it.

sleepswithangels says: So pretty much every blog is smacking John King about the face. I have no partiular affinity for this dude, and I agree that debate was just awul, but can we say with certainty it was him that wrote the entire thing, or is it possible that CNN is just seriously out of touch these days?

» SFB says: King probably didn’t write the questions, but he did some very bad moderating which did little to make up for the questions. Did you see how many times the guy cleared his throat or tried to cut off the candidates so they’d stop talking? And how much more time would they have had if King didn’t have to do that? Basically, this debate has the same problem the rest of the network does: It can’t take its eyes off the bells and whistles. Most people would probably prefer actual debate than QR codes on their screens. Stupid questions count as bells and whistles, by the way.

To back up the point ProducerMatthew made, we’d like to point out that a QR code graced the screen at some point during the debate. What’s the point? And why didn’t CNN make people scan their TV screens a decade ago when Cuecat was the big thing?
