CNN Continues to Milk Christine O’Donnell Walkout


By Alex Weprin Comment

Former Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell walked out on CNN host Piers Morgan Wednesday night, and the channel is still talking about it two days later.

CNN will replay the interview on “Piers Morgan Tonight” this evening, as seen on promos running throughout the day (see the photo right). In addition, the channel continues to run segments on the walkout during its news programs, like the one below on the “Art of the Walkout” from Jeanne Moos.

Tonight, Morgan will discuss the walkout with Time TV critic James Poniewozik.

Update: “PMT” EP Jonathan Wald takes to Twitter to note that MSNBC and Fox News have also been “covering” the walkout as well. So take note cable news guests: if you want lots of free publicity to shill your book/movie/political campaign, be sure to insult the anchor interviewing you.
