Now he tells us

Aaron Brown, who was canned from CNN, says it was because he rebelled against the tabloidy stories increasingly dominating the cable news channels.

Brown suggested his demise resulted from criticizing the network’s obsession with lurid celebrity gossip while short-changing meaningful news.

"He compared such "breaking news" to heroin — it’s good for a while, but will eventually make you feel used and dirty."

I don't really recall him speaking out that much, at the time, to be honest, but he sure has a point now.

I always thought he was one of the good guys. I like Anderson Cooper but I was sorry to see him replace Aaron.

Aaron Brown is boring but Anderson Cooper I don't think is too much better. The best one I see on every day is Bill Hemmer, but he's on early in the morning.
