Bill Bennett To CNN

bill_bennett.jpgOur cousin TVNewser is reporting that famed conservative commentator/morals guru Bill Bennett will be returning to the airwaves on CNN. His previous contract with Fox News has lapsed.

As Brian writes, “[The] departure of Bob Novak left the network without a high-profile conservative commentator. But Bennett, a former Education Secretary and drug czar, seems to be a strange choice to add a little red to the channel. Of all the conservatives CNN could sign, why Bennett? In September, he came under fire from all sides of the political sphere for his assertion that aborting ‘every black baby in this country’ would reduce the crime rate.”

No word from CNN on when Bennett might first appear on air.
