Re: Campbell Brown to Leave CNN

Greg, I found it somewhat astonishing (and rather refreshing) that Brown was so contrite and frank in her exit statement.  It’s rare to see a media personality explicitly say, “My ratings suck.  People don’t want to watch me.  So I’m leaving to give someone else a shot.”

In my opinion, the direct nature of her comments made her additional claims — wanting to spend more time with her kids and the opportunity to pursue other endeavors — seem more genuine and credible.  I wish her the best.
