As we just mentioned, Eliot Spitzer’s name is being tossed about this week regarding a larger role on a cable news net than his recent MSNBC appearances. Now, NYTimes’ Brian Stelter reports more about the potential Spitzer/CNN scenario:
Mr. Spitzer has held conversations — but so far only informal ones — about becoming a regular contributor to the cable news channel, according to two people who were briefed on the matter. But the people said he is not being courted for an anchoring job.
Stelter also notes that “CNN is considering a panel discussion program with a variety of political voices” that could fill Campbell Brown’s 8pmET time slot, adding that Spitzer “could conceivably be a panelist.”
