Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer during a Harvard University ethics forum in November 2009.
Luckily for former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, although the press can be merciless when it comes to the sexual peccadilloes of public figures, there’s also potential for a good comeback story to rise from the ruins of a political career. The latter appears to be the happier circumstance in which Spitzer finds himself after clinching a deal with CNN to do a debate show with conservative columnist Kathleen Parker. —KA
“Daily Intel” in New York Magazine:
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Kathleen Parker and former New York governor Eliot Spitzer will co-host a spirited, nightly roundtable discussion program on CNN/U.S., it was announced today by Jon Klein, president of CNN/U.S. The new program, set to debut this fall, will air weeknights at 8pm Eastern time.
Spitzer, a legendary prosecutor and progressive governor, and Parker, an iconoclastic conservative commentator, will host a dynamic exchange of opinions and analyses - their own, and those of their guests and regular contributors - on the most important, compelling and amusing stories of the day.
