Vulgarian comedienne Kathy Griffin will once again co-host CNN's New Year's Eve show.
TVNewser reported Sunday:
Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin will again co-host CNN’s New Year’s Eve celebration from 11pmET to 12:30amET. “Get ready, America. Pull up a chair and a box of your finest wine, because you’ve never seen a New Year’s Eve show like this,” said Griffin. “Kathy Griffin scares me. I’ve said this often to CNN management directly and through my attorneys,” joked Cooper.
As a result, she was excused from the 2010 event.
Yet despite joking in March 2010 that Sarah Palin had performed a sexual act with John McCain, saying days later she'd like to push Palin down the stairs, claiming in June that "strong conservative" means "idiot," calling Sen. Scott Brown's (R-Mass.) daughters "prostitutes" the following month and later saying it was a "fantastic career move," and blaming conservatives for gay teen suicides the following month, Griffin was invited back to co-host the 2011 show.
This year, Griffin mocked Palin while depicting Tea Party members as homophobic birthers on Glee.
And this is who the folks at CNN - the "most trusted name in news" - think should co-host their program ushering in the new year.
Don't they care that almost 50 percent of the nation is offended by this woman and wouldn't consider watching the show as a result?
Actually, if CNN cared about ratings all of its programming would be far more politically neutral.
