Please, CNN, Bury the Body

This Modern World: Network of the Living Dead

Billmon on Novak:

"CNN executives announced today that they will not bury the badly decomposed corpse of columnist and on-air personality Robert Novak, despite complaints from producers that the stench of his putrifying flesh is making it difficult to book guests for the network's talk shows.

'We realize some viewers may be unsettled by the sight of a rotting pile of maggot-infested tissue on their living room TV sceens,' explained CNN/US president Jonathan Klein. 'But Novak has a contract, and we feel that as long as we can squeeze a little more free publicity out of his legal and ethical problems, we have no choice but to keep him on the air.'"
