The saga continues today with my battle to get an apology equal to the damage done by the Orlando Sentinel and Roger Moore, its employee. You might be interested to know that my lawyer spoke to the newspaper’s lawyer yesterday, since the paper just won’t do the right thing on its own, apologize and publish the apology in its paper and on the Internet — equal to the distribution of its original malicious remark. As you know, I want the matter fixed and do not want them to force my hand to sue them… but I will if I must.

FTVLive notes that today is Aaron Brown’s birthday. The former CNN anchor is 57.
I’m watching Gomez give a business update with a lower third saying she’s a Fox News Business Correspondent. When did this change in her profile start happening? I’ve seen her appear on the FNC Business Block on occasion but this is the first time I can recall seeing her give a Fox Stox report….
2theadvocate has an opinion piece on the Brown dismissal/Cooper promotion….
(UPDATE: I accidentally left off the link. Fixed.)
After he was hired by CNN in 2001, anchorman Aaron Brown was widely viewed as the man likely to become the primary face of the network.
But it seems that Brown’s face isn’t young enough or fashionable enough for CNN’s latest president, Jonathan Klein.
Brown, 56, has been booted from the network and replaced by 38-year-old Anderson Cooper, a handsome correspondent and anchor believed more suited to much-coveted younger viewers.
Just a small note…the blog software will catch and hold any comments that have URLs in them. It was set up that way to catch spam but it will also catch those of you who want to point to a website to refer to something in your post. The “caught” comments are held for my review and if I think the comment is good, I’ll approve it. So if you post a comment that has an URL in it and you don’t see it appear, don’t bother retyping it…because you’ll just end up wasting your time.
The Rocky Mountain News’ Dusty Saunders looks at CNN’s recent changes….
Are we witnessing the nurturing of a future TV news star?
Or is CNN simply re-arranging the deck chairs on a listing ship?
The dumping of Aaron Brown as the weeknight anchor on NewsNight in favor of Anderson Cooper, while predictable, remains the talk of electronic media world.
