Blitzer Says "Bye Bye" To Late Edition

(h/t David E.)

I didn't realize it when I wrote the Bobblehead post this morning that today is the final airing of Late Edition. Host Wolf Blitzer signed off the program with a good-bye and thanks to his production team.

Now normally, I'd be happy as a clam over one less program and disingenuous "journalist" to deal with, but Blitzer and Late Edition are leaving to make room for John King and "State of the Union".

That's right, the same John King who said that Obama should worry about being too left. The same John King that played down CNN polls favorable to Obama during the election. The same John King that read a statement from Kissinger criticizing Obama without noting that it was based on a false statement. The same John King who blasted Glenn Greenwald for daring to suggest that King was a mite bit biased towards John McCain in his coverage.

So in our post-partisan afterglow of an election that decisively showed the country moving to the left and embracing our agenda, CNN gives up on Late Edition and brings us....John King?

That's a finger on the pulse of the nation.
