CNN, in its effort to remake itself as "Fux Lite," recently hired wingnut blogger Erick "Erick the Loon" Erickson. He's the rage-meister behind the far right-wing RedState blog, and his hate speech is well documented. Despite that, CNN has hired Erick the Loon as a commentator/analyst, appearing regularly on the execrable "John King, USA" show. Media Matters has Erick the Loon's most recent outrage, where he threatens to confront a Census worker with a shotgun.
It's not surprising that CNN is flailing around for a new winger identity: their viewership of their prime time programs has dropped dramatically in the past few months, apparently losing audience to the Fuxers.
