Here's CNN president Jon Klein shrugging off his cable channel's lousy ratings:
Excellent journalism is what we are focused on. We refuse to do the things that might get us a quick number or cater to the extremes that would alienate our core viewers.
And here's CNN's Lou Dobbs.
And no, Klein isn't somehow unaware of Dobbs' existence. Over the summer, when Dobbs was hyping Birther conspiracy theories, Klein leapt to Dobbs' defense. Oh, and earlier this year, Klein said Dobbs does a relatively straight newscast. Right.
