Being at CNN right now...

...must be a real treat.

Larry King is taking his microphone and suspenders and going home. The search for his successor already is under way.

Anderson Cooper might be "keeping them honest" at another network. Like him or not, Cooper, as the highlighted article notes, is the only sure-fire ratings grabber CNN has in the important prime-time block.

FOX News continues to hammer CNN (and MSNBC) in the ratings.

Of course, underscoring King's departure is what exactly CNN wants to be.

The network has steadfastly refused to this point to play the liberal or conservative game. It might have to. Or it could make a serious commitment to covering national and international news. That would be an expensive proposition.

It also might be the one that best serves the public.
