A.M.: Ali Missing

November 17, 2008

Where has American Morning’s Ali Velshi gone? The Bald Prophet of Doom has disappeared from CNN’s morning news program without a peep. Like its rival Fox & Friends, a change of the crew appears to be something to be spoken of sub rosa. If you’ve looked at AM’s web page lately, you’ll notice that Ali’s bio has been deleted and Christine Romans’ one has been added.

Well, Ali, apparently, has said taken off his AM hat and replaced it with sundry others: CNN’s chief business correspondent hosts Your $$$$$, regularly anchors Issue #1, hosts the Ali Velshi Show (radio and Internet), etc. For fans of the calvous clothes horse, you can still see him parade in his diurnal florid livery as he dispenses his business knowlege and advice in other venues. However, for AM’s audience, B-POD has been replaced by the lovely, no-nonsense Christine Romans.
