E-Squared is Out at CNN

Yup, it seems that his contract was not renewed, and in a surprising turn of events, Erick Erickson wrote a very gracious post about his time with the network. Here’s the surprising part:

“Frankly, before I went to CNN I was oblivious to the fact that there are ways to say things, without sacrificing or compromising my view or principle, that come off as more respectable and honest without invective than how I might have otherwise said them. There are ways to say things that draw people to you and ways to say things that push people from you. There are also times that facts and “known facts” get bounced around by both sides of the political spectrum without them ever actually being actual facts. We should all be more mindful of that. CNN made me mindful of that.”

Aside from the reflexive Both Sides Do It®, that is a rather remarkable statement to read coming from the man who once called a sitting Supreme Court Justice “a child-molesting goat-fucker.”

He entitled his post at RedState as moving-on, and perhaps he is in more ways than one.

  1. And if there’s anybody who has expertise in the area of being “a child-molesting goat-fucker,” it’s Erick Erickson. He’ll fit right in at Faux Nooz™ and, if not, there’s surely room at Duh Blaze.
