2. Yep. He was spineless and didn't support her. According to Kathy,

Anderson didn't even call her.

4. Andy Cohen co-hosts with Anderson.

Hes funny and nice. I like him better. But Im not part of the hate Griffin group.

5. Cooper and Cohen were spineless. Lots of hurt feelings on both sides. It's a shame.

7. I thought that they had resolved this

ridiculous situation by now. She is going on with her career and a ton of people have done far worse, and not as a joke either, yet they have been "forgiven" and as adults have moved on by now. Especially when you consider the ridiculous shit shows that the right wing not jobs have publicly participated in over the last two years. I guess Anderson or CNN likes to hold a grudge instead of making amends.

8. I can sort of understand it, although I was surprised by them pulling her off the host job.

As a news organization, they have to be more sensitive to and aware of being closely associated with someone who did something political that many found offensive and over the top, esp against the so-called President. It's that it was the office of the President; not who was the President, that mattered. CNN is already fighting to maintain that it is a neutral organization. Having a host of a big event be someone who did what she did (although it was a joke), would make it harder. It's just not in its best interest. Even if the suits running CNN weren't offended, a news org. has to be picky about things like that.

I hate that that happened to her. It was a pile on that looked like would ruin her career. I'm glad she's made it out the other side of the tunnel.

I don't know that I'd blame Cooper. I doubt he makes the personnel decisions at CNN. I don't get cable so don't watch CNN. But I hate to hear that Cooper didn't say anything to support her.

I remember that Bill Maher was fired from his late night host job on his own show after a comment about the terrorists of 9/11. Comedians are cutting edge. It's so easy for them to cross the line unintentionally.

9. You make excellent points.

I guess that I can understand why this is continuing, but I still don't like it. I think the hypocrisy is what bothers me the most.
