Soledad O’Brien lost her morning show, “Starting Point,” and isn’t going quietly. She said she losing her show is ‘win-win’ because the show was understaffed and was essentially ignored. O’Brien told the Huffington Post, “we did not get a lot of promotion. We did not get a lot of marketing. We weren’t fully staffed,’ she said in an interview with the . That’s just what happened.” Erin Burnett and Chris Cuomo will likely take over her time slot.

The management at CNN are crazy for allowing Jeff Zucker to sack Soledad O’Brien. She was one of the best journalists on the network. I have never watched an interview conducted by Erin Burnett in which she asked the tough questions like Soledad O’Brien. That’s just insane but I am sure she will land on her feet.

O’Brien is reportedly planning to enter a production partnership with CNN. Her new company, Starfish Media, will provide documentaries and other programs for airing on CNN including her ‘In America’ series, Huffington Post reports.

    Is there any part of your world that can see that Soleda O’Brien is every bit of the “Herman Cain/Sara Palin political operative” to CNN but she was a daily anchor rather than a periodic analyst?
