Check out this interview with CNN prez Jon Klein:
|You’ve drawn criticism from people saying you’re over-promoting Anderson Cooper — what do you say to that?
All you have to do is watch Anderson night in and night out to know that he’s the preeminent journalist of his generation. It’s no wonder people try to attack him. He offers depth. He does real news, and he goes to where story is.
But what about people saying CNN has promoted him at the expense of others?
They should run their business, and we should run ours. Anderson has earned the renown that he’s gotten by virtue of the absolute kick-ass reporting that he does.
