Anchorman Brawl! For Real!!


First, NRO’s the Buzz brought you the latest Page Six tidbit about Hillary challenger Jeanine Pirro’s Victoria’s Secret shopping sprees. Now, the Media Blog is proud to bring you Page Six’s take on the real anchorman brawl developing between Anderson Cooper and Dan Abrams.

CNN’s Cooper called out MSNBC’s Abrams and Fox’s Greta Van Susteren for their “downright ridiculous” obsessions with the Aruba Teen (an assessment I, for one, agree with). Then Abrams fired back, pointing out that CNN’s Larry King and Nancy Grace are equally obsessed and that Cooper also devotes airtime to trivia like the Jackson jurors.

The important thing is that these guys are keeping their heads on a swivel, and that’s what you’ve gotta do when you find yourself in the middle of a vicious cockfight.

UPDATE: TVNewser’s been on the case, and Jeff Jarvis had to bring up the runaway bride.
