Franken, My Dear, Doesn't Give A Damn

Veteran CNN Political Correspondent Doesn't Go Quietly
Not having your contract renewed by your employer after 21 years can give you a case of the nasties.
Such is the case for CNN vet Bob Franken, who U.S. News and World Report says left but not before taking a swipe at Wolf Blitzer.
The precise contents of that note have yet to be leaked.
Franken, it seems, wanted one more presidential campaign on his formidable resume, while the network preferred him to be more of a "utility player."
Franken told colleagues his services are wanted elsewhere. That may very well turn out to be MSNBC, which could use some reportorial heft for its campaign coverage to go with its talking heads.
