CNN's Campbell Brown steps down
By: Bill O'ReillyMay 19, 2010
Seattle Post-Intelligencer: CNN's Campbell Brown is ending her CNN show, and being blunt about the reason why.

"I knew on the day that I accepted my job at CNN that a ratings victory at 8 p.m. was going to be a formidable challenge. As I have been told over and over, this is the toughest timeslot in cable news," Brown said in a statement Tuesday. "Of course I pay attention to ratings. And simply put, the ratings for my program are not where I would like them to be. It is largely for this reason that I am stepping down as anchor of CNN's Campbell Brown."

Brown, who moved to CNN in 2008 after 11 years with NBC News, emphasized that the decision was her own, and said she didn't want to make excuses. "I could have said that I am stepping down to spend more time with my children (which I truly want to do). Or that I am leaving to pursue other opportunities (which I also truly want to do). But I have never had much tolerance for others' spin, so I can't imagine trying to stomach my own," she said. "The simple fact is that not enough people want to watch my program, and I owe it to myself and to CNN to get out of the way so that CNN can try something else."
