Round of applause for CNN’s “Starting Point” anchor Soledad O’Brien for showing her tough side on-air on Tuesday morning.
While interviewing former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, the two got into a back and forth argument about details of President Obama’s changes to Medicare. Sununu, who has regularly shown his ass on the big cable networks, attempted the same trick with O’Brien.
Soledad used the opportunity to put him right in his place after he insulted her. She called out not only his attitude, but his penchant for reading from the standard Republican talking points.
I wish more reporters would bring the heat on-air like this.
