CNN’s Choice Of Analyst Comes Back To Bite Them

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

CNN said it shouldn’t have used a former U.S. attorney who quit his job after allegedly biting a stripper as an analyst about New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s prostitution scandal.

No mention of Kendall Coffey’s past was made when anchor Tony Harris interviewed him Tuesday on the legal questions surrounding Spitzer’s case. Coffey quit his job in May 1996 after being accused of biting a topless dancer on the arm during a visit to an adult club after losing a big drug case.

(…)

While Coffey’s past is known to CNN’s booking department, it wasn’t to the person who set up Harris’ segment. CNN spokesman Nigel Pritchard blamed a “miscommunication.”

“Coffey has been a guest on CNN in the past but was probably not the right one for this story,” Pritchard said.

Well played, CNN. Well played.
