CNN REALLY RAW: Mud Slinging CNN Style

9.23.2010 by Winsip Custer WPC News Service

Ralph Reed and Elliott Spitzer joined Kate Zernike of the NY Times with Anderson Cooper on his Anderson Cooper 360 Raw program on Wednesday September 22nd. Cooper had wrestled with changing the name to 360 Really Raw.

 "I wanted to change the name to '360 Really Raw'," said Cooper, but my idea was overridden by the producers at CNN. That was before Reed and Spitzer took the gloves off and began attacking each other verbally, not over their political ideas, but over who had made the fastest comeback following their respective falls from grace with Reed's acceptance of payola from Jack Abramoff and Spitzer's trists with prostitutes.

"We were hoping that people would tune in to watch a possible battle between two former high profile muckrakers....one approaching the cultural decline from a legal and one from a religious viewpoint and both having fallen face first in the muck and mire. We just thought it would take a little longer for the muck to start flying," says an unnamed CNN advisor.

"It's much harder to make a comeback like this from womanizing with prostitutes," said Spitzer to which Reed responded, "Just because I was only crucified for taking Abramoff's money doesn't mean I didn't have trists with prostitutes, too. My rise from the ashes was harder," he said. While Spitzer fired back... "On a scale from one to ten I hit a nine and you're only about a seven."
