TVNewser is reporting that CNN’s Susan Roesgen is out at CNN after the network declined to renew her contract. Roesgen faced harsh criticism a few months ago because of her on-air reaction to a group of tea party protesters, and the videos of the encounter received hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. In fact the YouTube video was getting so much traction within the blogosphere that CNN used copyright claims to get one of the earliest versions removed from the site.
I predict a lot of schadenfreude in the conservative blogosphere today. They kept he issue alive for weeks after it happened, and permanently tarnished Roesgen’s reputations until she was likely viewed as damaged goods.
