Fox News Contributor Reveals She Gets Her News From CNN

“If I want to know about news, I turn to CNN because it's 24/7,” said Fox News’ Lauren Ashburn

Move over, James Earl Jones — CNN has a new spokesperson.

“If I do want to know about news, I turn to CNN because it is 24/7!” Ashburn said candidly.

Appearing on MediaBuzz, Ashburn was commenting on host Howard Kurtz's observation that CNN has focused so much attention on the the missing Malaysian airplane, it's opened the door for misleading speculation.

“CNN is well equipped to cover this kind of story because of its big international footprint,” Kurtz said. “But at the same time, CNN is covering almost nothing else. And that's translated for good ratings for CNN …”

Ashburn went on to compliment the “amazing news resources” CNN has at its disposal to cover the missing plane, allowing Fox News’ rival to take their coverage “to the next level.”

    LOL, you can hear a few of Roger Ailes’ blood vessels bursting in the background.

  • Michael Difani

    Oh yeah, Ashburn is a great journalist….sure. FoxNews strikes out again.

  • felicia solomita

    She is supposed to be the conservative on the show? Wow Roger Ailes is crazed. I guess they made it and now the conservatives are kicked in the rear end. Shut off the station and fin another. This show is the worst I have ever seen. How about Brent Bozell? Not good enough for Fox and Ailes.

    • Scott

      If it is “the worst show you have ever seen”, why do you continue to watch it ?

  • JT White

    On this clip it cuts off right when she said she watches CNN. Is that her completed statement or did she go on to say more that didn't make her comment seem so bad?

  • John Bernard

    The “journalist” that wrote this (and I use the word loosely) should try writing news occasionally.

    The blondes just won't escape the “dumb” stigma that way!

    CNN has Headline News which is 24/7. CNN itself has tons of forgettable opinion shows.
