The website TVNewser is reporting that CNN U.S. president Jon Klein has asked his show producers to avoid booking talk radio hosts in an effort to tone down the rhetoric. “Complex issues require world class reporting,” Klein is quoted as saying, adding that talk radio hosts too often add to the noise, and that what they say is “all too predictable.” One of CNN’s longtime show hosts, Lou Dobbs, hosts a daily radio show. A few political contributors also host radio shows including Bill Bennett and Roland Martin. However they are presumed to be not affected by this.
