Erick Erickson, Colbert Report guest, RedState.com editor and defender of goats, has landed a new gig on CNN, aka the MSM. This is not a St. Patrick's day joke! Here's the official announcement…
Prominent conservative commentator and RedState.com editor Erick Erickson will join CNN as a political contributor, appearing primarily on CNN's new show John King, USA¸ the network announced Tuesday.
"Erick's a perfect fit for John King, USA, because not only is he an agenda-setter whose words are closely watched in Washington, but as a person who still lives in small-town America, Erick is in touch with the very people John hopes to reach," said Sam Feist, CNN political director and vice president of Washington-based programming.
So many questions! Will Erickson's audience see him as a sellout or a successful infiltrator? Is CNN skewing right or is CNN just desperate for more ginned-up shouting matches, since reasonable discourse gets terrible ratings?
Most importantly, what is with "John King, USA"? Does that mean Campbell Brown gets Canada?
